I have looked around for a decent performing and looking travel Fusion cart razor, and think I have found one  Biggrin

A Mühle Fusion in black anodized aluminum - the handle looks like plastic, but it's black anodized aluminum  Thumbup

Have yet to receive it, but sure looks like a great little travel razor  Smile

I tried a Schick Slim Twin disposable when I flew to Vegas, and it was not especially nice to my face.  I know they work well for some, but apparently not for me.  I'll be watching this thread for recommendations for a replacement.

Gillette seems to have lost the thread of the argument some time back.  I used Gillette cartridge razors preferentially for the better part of four decades, shaving every day, seven days a week, and upgrading from model to model of Gillette cartridge razor along the way.  When (five years ago, plus or minus a couple) I jumped ship to the then-current Schick line (then at the Quattro level), I realized how very far behind the game Gillette had fallen.   The current Schick Hyrdo3 runs rings around any Gillette cartridge razor. (The Hyro5 is a bit of a frivolity; stick with the Hydro3.)

In answer to your direct question:  Feather MR3 neo, an incredible shaving instrument, ne plus ultra

A Gillette GII, made in the BRD. In essence, a Trac II in the European market. I have a plethora of cartridges - proprietary and third-party, vintage and modern - that are also easily available on the High Street for as low as 20p per cartridge. I can take it abroad without concern, it's replaceable and cheap, and it delivers a very good shave whether in a cramped, dark hotel bathroom at 5am or luxuriating mid-morning after a holiday lie-in.

I also prefer the way it looks to modern cartridge razors, but that's another matter.

If we're talking just cartridge razors i use the Feather MR3, but i'll be honest it's been a while since i used a cartridge razor. For my travels i really like to use the Feather popular, it's pretty cheap and it comes with a nice storage case for the razor and blades. I find it quite mild in my opinion, but i can go many passes without irritation and it always delivers a smooth shave. It's cheap cost makes it easy replaceable, this was the main draw for me. I also bring along a Dovo Shavette if i feel like using some sort of straight razor on my travels.

At some point I'd like to acquire my birthday quarter Travel Tech.
In practice, however, what I take on the road is my Harry's cart razor.

If I am flying a cheap Dollar Store twin blade with spare carts. If by car either a Merkur slant or Muhle R41 2013 version. At home mostly straight razors.

My razor of choice for air travel is the Feather MR3 neo with either the FII neo or MR3 neo blade.  For other modes of travel
I will use of my regular  DE razor favorites.

I usually use a Mach 3 disposable. I have a couple of German made travel razors - an Atra/Contour, and a Super II. I haven't used them for travelling yet....

Well, just tested my new travel cart razor.

It's quite understated beautiful design.

But It's a travel razor and handle is short - so short that I have to rest the bottom opart against my finger and not the palm of my hand.

But all in all it's great. Just shaved with it, and got a really nice shave.

It's very light weight and very easy to maneuvre around the face.

Highly recommended, with only minor complaint - the handle is short, like a Merkur 34H DE razor. And the razor is lightweight, it's a travel razor after all.

I use XL size gloves, so if you have XXL hands, forget about this travel razor. I can just use it, just - but I knew a travel razor would be extra compact.

My rating: 8.5/10

Beater Fat Boy, old 35 mm film can for protection.  I'll mail blades ahead if flying carry-on only, I have some Feathers stashed in some of my favorite places around the country.

Trac II. No need for the fancy 12 blade razor, 2 blades works just fine!
