Sunday Morning SHAVE - the Ides of October RAZOR: Silver Plated Mini TRACII travel razor. BLADE: Gillette TracII Plus SHAVE CREAM: Barbasol Pacific Rush - what a great scent this has! BRUSH: NO! Applied the lather with my fingers. PRE-SHAVE: Hot water wash with Ivory Soap, hot water rinse. POST SHAVE: Hot water rinse AFTER SHAVE: Master Bay Rum Wanted a quick clean shave in a jiffy - this combo filled the ticket! I have more than a few cartridge systems that have been neglected for some time now. Atra is probably my favorite, but then again, I used the Atra system consistently for many years. I enjoy the TracII platform, probably just as much as the Atra. It gives a good shave with very little fuss. This little (mini) 3 piece TracII handle has some weight to it. I am not sure what metal is under the silver plating. The razor handle feels good in the hand, even though it is slimmer than any other I have used. And Barbasol - what can I say? Got as nice 2 pass DFS - no time for touchups. Very nice way to start off a Sunday morning. God Bless!
