I still on occasion will pull out the cartilage.   Usually when traveling or in a hurry.

What cartridges do you use when you need to.

Currently I am alternating between 800 Razor and Shave MOB.

i trashed everything resembling cartridges even remotely the day i started with de razors, but in the unlikely event i'll be in need while abroad i'll purchase the first random razor that pops up.

I use a Gillette Guard or a Gillette Vector when I travel. It's just so much easier being able to carry on a cartridge.

Gillette Mach 3, Feather System: FII neo and MR3 neo.
PS: In present, I use only cartridges. Works better for me than DE.

Mach3 at home and Sensor when I travel.  I've all but abandoned my DE razors after many, many years.  I find I get a noticeably more comfortable and closer shave with my Mach3 and Sensor than I do with any of my DEs.

I use a Mach 3 daily for clean up on my jawline and upper lip. Gets me closer with no nicks. Whatever works best go with it.

None. If I can't shave with a straight I shave with a DE. If time does not permit for either I will be unshaven or late.

For my money the best cartridge I've tried is the Feather neo3. The downside is that, at least for now, the carts are only available to me online. Not really a problem -- I have a DNROO list (Do Not Run Out Of) and the neo refills are on it.

I have also used a Mach III (pre-neo days) to finish off my usual DE shave for that special occasion when I need a truly polished shave. A multi-blade is invaluable for the upper lip ATG pass, and some under-chin cleanup. I don't do this often, but it is the best tool for that specific job.

Also, the neo does pivot, but there is a small locking lever easily activated by touch whilst shaving. I tend to lock it for the lip, release it for the chin.
Good looker too:

Trac II for me.  One in the camper, one in the travel bag, and one in the den just because I can!  Angel

After fairly extensive testing, the Gillette Sensor is the best fit for me. Replacement blades are more widely available than the Contour and earlier models yet noticeably cheaper (and to my mind, more controlled and intuitive) than Mach3, Quattro etc onwards. Essentially, I prefer the price, aesthetic, availability and indeed the shave.

I absolutely love the Gillette Sensor, for many years it was my daily driver.

I still use Gillette Fusion and Sensor cartridges.  As much as I try, I honestly cannot deny that they give me great, irritation free shaves.

I stocked up on Trac II compatibles, the ones you can get for under $0.30 each in bulk from eBay, before I happened upon DE. I still have a newly upgraded handle, a Bump Fighter, as well. I think that along with the Barbasol can, I have used the twin blades only once since going DE. Still, the clock eventually becomes the master so I am ready if I have to cut down the shave time in the mornings.

Gillette Fusion Proglide is what I have to use. I have a large mole on my cheek which precludes me from using a DE or a straight razor. I have tried Harrys razors but they don't seem to be as sharp as Fusion. Also has anyone tried the Gillette Fusion Proglide blades from Elite Shave.com? I purchased some, they look exactly like Fusion blades but they don't seem to be as sharp as the Fusions blades I get from a store. Is it me or is there a difference? I will admit that the blades from Elite Shave are a lot cheaper to buy.

I can't think of a reason to use a cart haha, but if I had to, I would go back to the Gillette Sensor Excel. Extremely comfy and I could shave in about 5-6 minutes.
2 blades > 3+ blades IMO

I use Personna twin pivot blades for my Trac II handle. I still use one fairly regularly. For me SE>twin cartridge>DE>5-blade cartridge. I don't use DEs or 3+ cartridges at all though.
