By that I mean, how do you shave the area under your nostrils ?

I stumbled over one of those in a thrift store for a very reasonable price. The big head has been to some nuisance, and is probably the cause of me not using it a lot. It's a fun razor, but I much prefer my Merkur HD. Anyways, shaving under the nose wasn't that much more of a trouble to me with that one. I just bend my nose out of the way for shaving on either side of it. Then I might do a diagonal pass, and perhaps a sideways pass. Also, doing sort of a hook-motion starting with the head of the razor pointing upwards right under the nose, and scooping along the curve is a nice trick.
