Last time I did that the plastic became old & fragile, used infrequently ...& too weak to shave with, ..it was a complete waste of time, money & storage.

How do you manage to " risk  slashing your face to hell with an unfamiliar DE " they are called safety razors. I have tried dozens of blades and found the quality of the shave may vary as does how long they last but never any that cut you. Incidently I find that the Japanese Feather brand give the best shave. I was using open razors for a while, something nice about restoring a blade made in 1826 and getting a decent shave with it but that doesn't help with your flight problem.

No I mean buy something in Germany and leave it there when you are finished.
If travel regulation means you can’t take your own, buy something there, live with the fact it’s not as good as the one at home and rejoice when you get home and get back to a better shaver.
No need to make a big deal about it eh.

I thought the “Feather” branded blades came in plastic packaging? I use “Shark” branded blades but haven’t experimented with others.

The ones I use come in exactly the same packaging as every other make of blades, ie. a 5 blade plastic dispenser with each blade individually paper wrapped.

You should avoid the ones that come in a plastic dispenser, go for the ones that come in a cardboard box (individually wrapped in greaseproof).

The dispensers double us as used blade storage.

Using a DE is already reducing plastic. if a preferred blade comes in plastic, so be it.

I like permasharp blades that are in card, but if someone likes Feathers then that's up to them.

Best to avoid plastic packaging where possible though...
