    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!

    Tonight's shave was with a nice German razor, made for the German market.. I had a smooth 2 pass shave, with very minor touch-ups, on the chin. This left me with a BBS finish, and zero issues. A fine and well made razor.

    Razor- Zwillingswerks(J.A.Henckels) 50 1/2. Made in Solingen Germay.
    Brush- B400, By Tom( @twhite ). New knot, and back in service.
    Soap- Arko/Avon Spicy
    Aftershave- Pinaud Clubman

    Razor - Fatip Piccolo
    Blade - [​IMG] (2)
    Pre-shave - Stirling Mentholated Pre-Shave Soap
    Soap - Truefitt & Hill 1805
    Brush - Stirling Synthetic
    Post - Alum

    Day two on this setup and it's also a two day shave since I skipped last night. I'm curious to see how the pre-shave soap helps or hinders the process with a two day growth. The big Stirling synthetic brush loaded incredibly easy, I washed my face with the Stirling pre-shave soap and lathered over the top. The Fatip made easy and quick work of my beard with no feel of any tugging or dragging in the extra growth. Seriously smooth and comfortable first pass. Second pass, XTG and some touch up put the baby in the house and made me even more of a fan of the pre-shave soap. I'm curious to see where @PLAla ends up with this product as far as his plans to continue using it. As for me.....the chance of adding it to my normal routine is growing. Alum was quiet as well and with the Fatip and a sharp blade like the Perma-Sharp, that's a very good thing.

    Your Monday is upon us! My Saturday is upon me!! Two days off to enjoy life a bit and do a little more organizing around here. We're about halfway through OCtober and I'm loving it! Just an early nudge that next up is NOVember.......No Variation November. Yeah, a rule basically but with all the freedom we normally allow around here. I have my plan together already and it should be quite a, uh, fun......yeah I'll use that month ahead. Of course, two more weeks of the OC routine and a couple of shenanigans to go before then!
