I know DE razor blades are not allowed, but are soaps ok to take on the plane, like Mitchel's wool fat in the ceramic container, or Trumpers in the wooden bowl, also what about after shave products, like nivea in the glass bottle?

Crypto,
Hard soaps should be no problem. Nivea in the glass bottle, if I remember, is in liquid form. In that case, you're allowed a small bottle, something that would fit in a small zip lock bag. In other words, you're allowed a limited amount of liquid, but I can't tell you specifically the amount.

I think it's 2 ozs of liquid, But someone should confirm that.

If you don't have the small bottles, Specialty Bottle will sell you one at a time as long as you pay the freight. Of course they'll seel you more than that also.

3.4oz of liquid, according to their site. I work at the airport and hear the TSA propaganda all day long, but I'm almost positive they say 3oz in their message over the intercom system.

they won't even let an employee with a bottle of water in their lunch bag go through without tossing the water out. how pathetic.

As said soap is good though I may leave the MWF behind. Even in carry on I'd be worried of the bowl breaking when some goon decides to keep slamming his briefcase in the overhead compartment your bag is in with the hope that it'll magically fit on the 15th try.

Travel is something for which a shave stick is a great solution. You won't have to worry about the carry-on baggage liquids regulation and it takes up a minimum of space. Breakable containers, such as those made out of ceramic and glass, are best left at home.

so any hard soap is fine, and doesn't have to be in the liquids bag. what about creams like taylors avocado in the tub or trumpers coconut oil in the tub, what about an alum bloc?

Alum block is ok, creams you're best following putting them in a small travel container. They are kinda in the in between where it may be thought of as a lotion (ie "cream") by a few tsa agents. Better to be safe than sorry.

The trick there is to bring an empty water bottle, then fill it up at the water fountain.

Last week I was traveling out of Dulles and they pulled me out of the security line to search my bag and went straight for my bluetip superspeed.

'Sir, what is this?'

I explained it was a razor without a blade. They looked at it and then put it in one of those trays and ran it through an xray machine by itself. Then they gave it back and said I was good to go.
They didn't care about the soap in the bag.

I don't fly much anymore but if I did I would do carry on and take my Schick Tracer and one of my shavesticks. For a brush I would take my Semogue 1520, fit's just perfect in a large Prescription bottle. My aftershave would be Razorock aftershave wax, the container is small and has a screw on lid. I don't want to take a chance of losing something to TSA.

I solved all my travel problems a long time ago. I don't fly. Depending on where I'm going, I either drive or take the bus.

I would rather drive too but its on my girlfriends birthday and she wants to get before it gets too late and from Lubbock,TX to Austin, TX. It is about a 7 hour drive and she gets out of class at 12 so that would put us there pretty late in the day to have dinner ad spend time with her family.

Short trips - Williams, Lord L6 with blade in, cheap VDH or Omega boar, small squeeze bottle of aftershave of choice (2 oz), small tube of moisturizer, small spray bottle of cologne decanted. That is it. 99% of the time it is never questioned. If I lose it all I am out $20.

Longer trips I check it all so it does not matter.

you think you could get away with putting a blade into a lord/ASCO/wilkinson cheep razor and then gluing everything down?

Will they let you fly with a Fusion Proglide razor? It's frustating to have to buy something to shave with once you arrive some place and then have to toss it out.

I was once stopped when the X-Ray machine spotted my harmonicas. I was told to step away from bag, while they very carefully and fearfully found my metal harmonicas.

You can carry on any cartridge razor, so yes you can fly with the Proglide.
