I've been thinking of getting a new one, but it still works and I like it.

I'm gunna bump this for my question.


I don't like the look of my clean shaven face - I want to keep a trimmed look - very short stubble (maybe two days out).

My mustache grows faster than the rest of my face; I shave that alone the night after I clean shave, this sucks!


I have a trimmer that I use for the other "stuff", but it doesn't go on my face. (Yes, tried it and it sucks / gross)


Anyone know of an adjustable electric razor that I can use to keep my stubble at an even level whenever I use it?

$80-130 range

For stubble maintenance I just have a Norelco trimmer I think it was like $50 at target or something...more than adequate

This one looks great.. http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelc...f=pd_sbs_hpc_2


Half the price.


"18 secured
length settings" That's exactly what I'm looking for.


Plus when I need to go clean, I have my badger brush for my traditional wetshave. Shout out to Jay

BTM (and whoever else).


Got my trimmer - http://www.amazon.com/Philips-Norelc...f=pd_sbs_hpc_2


I tried it today - did everything great, except I couldn't get as close on my mustache.


Do I need a foil trimmer? This one doesnt have changeable heads or I would purchase one...

I would try a blade kit first to see which you like

or

lol yea it does

get Jay in here to comment on the straight razor.

They take a lot of work / skill to get them honed and cared for correctly.

Sorry to thread jack but if you are looking into straight razors I would start at the straight razor place forums. http://straightrazor**********/forum.php Not sure why it keeps editing out this link. Just google the site name.

A few sites for equipment
http://www.classicshaving.com/Home.html
http://www.straightrazordesigns.com/
http://www.vintagebladesllc.com/

And when your ready to go Samurai
