Holiday/Travel Kit

#8
I have been thinking about this myself as I am due to go away soon. How do you gents carry your razors? I have an EJ DE89 that shipped to me in one piece but I am thinking I should pack it broken down but do all the parts then rattle around in your wash bag? And stick everything in hold baggage or take the razor in carry on?

I like to travel light, but this setup still gives me a great shave.



- Razorock Silvertip plissoft in a Muhle shaving brush travel tube
- Merkur 39c in a Parker black leather case
- A selection of blades in a old Feather blade dispenser (includes a section to hold old used blades)
- Valobra shave stick (stored in a plastic bag)
- Small bottles of aftershave tonic / balm

As I usually go somewhere in Europe I go hand luggage only so I usually take a couple of bic 2 and a boar brush in a travel tube thing and then hunt down some cream while I'm there. The bics aren't as bad as I expected. I wouldn't like to use them all the time, but for a week they're just fine.

I make a little pouch/tube from bubble wrap so they can be reused then just put them in when you travel. Easy really.

I have one of those Parker cases and most razors fit well; it's never let me down.

Mix pack of blades
MWF
A nearly finished stub of palmolive stick

It is nice to keep it simple for a few weeks.
The Palmolive (an old foe of mine for scent but a warrior of performance) has shone on this trip. Dealing with non-potable, extremely hard water, the MWF has struggled but the palmolive stick has not missed a beat.

I have confirmed a trick with MWF however which I will post separately about.

This is the first fortnight in 8 years where I have totally ignored work emails. Just fantastic.
