Well, this is what I have, left over from the long-ago bad old days. But since I virtually never travel, I don't use them.

I am new to this forum. By the way, I tried a safety razor. No patience for it! I get a great 2 pass shave (and quick clean-up pass) with the Mach 3 cartridge. I don't shave on Sundays and switch out the cartridge once a week. As you can see, I am a Proraso green addict. I just love the fresh barbershop scent of these and everything else about 'em. Proraso just released a new green balm in Italy. It's not in the states yet, but I have a friend in Italy shipping me a bottle.

I've been using various canned foam and gels, and really enjoying them lately.

My cart set-up often includes my Semogue 1305 brush to apply the canned foams I have. It works great as long as the brush is damp.

I've been favoriting the Mach 3 Sensitive handle with regular Mach 3 carts, but the Fusion Proglide Power with Power blades gives me the best shaves so far.

I've also been won over by the simplicity of the BIC Sensitive disposable shaver. It reminds me of my E2 Injector but easier to handle, and the sound of cutting stubble is cool.

Kudos to the Gillette Clear Gel product, which gives me the closest shaves of my life with the Fusion Proglide Power. I haven't used it with the Mach 3 blades yet.

I haven't used a cartridge razor in quite awhile but my wife bought me this set with a DE razor for our anniversary and I didn't want to waste it. So... I got it out and gave it a run. 2 passes and got a decent shave. I will have to add this in when I am in a hurry.

The bullet takes the term cartridge to a whole new meaning.

Wow — some really beautiful setups there. Cartridge razors are classy too! I am very happy with my DE razor shaves, but I'm glad there are options available. I find that, for that mad dash "in the shower" shave there is nothing quite as effective as a multi-blade razor. (Just save a half minute for a splash of something nice on the way out the door.)

When I'm pressed for time, or simply don't feel like the full ritual, this is what I reach for.

These are some really great handles! The Bolin R1, that Olivewood that Mike made for his wife, and the Bullet are amazing!
