I was looking at my razor the other day and when the angle of light is just right I can see three tiny little spots on the blade that look like nicks. I ran my thumbnail parallel along the blade and I didn't feel it catch nor when I ran perpendicular to the blade no catches. I'm sure its from my mishandling but is this something that I'd have to have the blade honed to fix? I really can't take a picture because of the angle and they are quite small as well. Just kinda wondering at what point should I be concerned? As for the angle I'm going nuts trying to figure out a good approach to my neck. To go against the grain I'd have to shave basically in horizontal strokes from left to right. I've tried hitting the hairs at an angle on a up or down stroke but it really doesn't get close enough. So I'd like to hear how some of you do the neck area.
