Shaving razor

After variuos hair trimmer bought during the years with poors results (if it has the battery it runs down fastly, if it has the wire is difficult to use beacuse it always wrap, they easily break at the first fall, after a few months they cut less, you can't find the spare parts ecc), I have decided to buy one that can last some years without these problems.
Easy to say but which is this electric razor? Or which is the best and the best brand?
If someone of you has a suggestion I would be very grateful.
Thank you

Man, I hate electric razors, I got really coarse facial hair so it catches and the razor rips them out of my face by the roots. Won't touch one ever again.

I hated HATED shaving, I have thick tough hair, and it was always rushed, so I did a crappy job with whatever I used, electrics, Mach 3, whatever.
I started shaving with a straight razor, using real tallow-based shaving soaps, a brush, the whole deal. It takes a little longer, but now, it's not a chore, I actually enjoy it!
I get to play with ludicrously sharp things, and making them so....it's fun!
The time I spend shaving is now a little oasis in the morning before my day starts.

So...you asked a question, and I didn't answer it at all, giving you tangentially (at best) related materials, and some un-requested advice. Have a great day.

If you have thin facial hair just get a good quality rechargeable unit and use some of that white powder they sell to make it a smoother shave, and with less irritation. If you have thick facial hair you might have better luck with the disposable razors.

I tried all kinds of electrics with pretty lame results. The last 5 years I've just been getting some disposable that I use 3 or 4 times then throw out. I like these much much better than any electric I've used. They get closer and there's less irritation.

I can't stand electric razors. As fast as my facial hair grows, i never feel like I get a close enough shave with one. I love my Gillette Fusion though. Nice close shave and I never cut myself unless I do something really stupid...just damn expensive to buy the blades!!


Thanks to Toxic for the Awesome Sig!

Even if the whole world is against you, one thing will never let you down. That thing is beer.

I always wanted to try a straight razor but I cant find anyplace that sells them.

I use disposable single blades. If it's got two blades or something it tends to clog with me, because I let it get pretty beardey before I trim it. Disposable is also cheaper and sharp, just use them once.
