Hi folks I’m curious what kind of technique you used around this particular area, since is my Achilles’ tendon I would like to hear your experience (if Adam’s apple apply to you).
For me is easier when I shave with a Straight razor than when I shave with DE or SE (I can maneuver more easily around the area).
I usually stretch my skin on different ways but still not enough to get a “SMOOTH” feeling pass.
So I need a little help more towards DE/SE use.
Anyways let me know your thoughts.
Happy Friday

I do that area slowly and carefully. First the left side then the right. One pass is generally sufficient for that tender spot.

That thing is a bitch. If there is a god I definitely believe that he has a long white beard and never shaves, and he created the adams apple just to be a dick.

Dave just nailed it
Check this out:
If you swallow and hold the muscle contraction the Adam's apple rises higher in your neck and sinks down so it's not protruding leaving a flat area to shave
Thanks Dave

I just pull the apple to the left or the right and do a quick once over the area.

This is my Waterloo as well, I get the best results with Schick Injectors, probably because the blade is narrower than the other formats, thus easier to go straight E & W.  I'm interested in hearing of solutions

This is what I do. Used to nick it every third shave or so, but no longer.

Stretch the skin a little to the left, then a little to the right. Works for me with everything shaving method.

Geofatboy on a video recommended swallowing and then not relaxing when shaving that area. Luckily that was one of the first de shaving videos that I saw. Works well for me.

This is what I've been doing recently. Thank you for the advice. I also tried the swallowing trick that's been recommended, but I have trouble holding that for more than a second.
