Electric razor advice

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Gents, and possibly ladies I need your advice.

    Like a complete twat I have lost my philishave and now will need to replace it.

    I've had it for four years or so and liked the fact it was rechargeable and gave a reasonably odd close shave.

    So my question is, of the available electric razors which one would you consider to be the market leader ?
     
  2. Cheap and reliable twenty dollar battery powered Braun in a drawer in the office, it's been going strong for two years now and when it dies I'll just throw it out and buy another.
     
  3. I have a phillips battery shaver, had it for over 25 years and its been all over the world with me and still going strong, so for me you can't go wrong with a phillips
     
  4. Anyone have a recommendation for the more mature man? White stubble seems to be thicker than dark hair, and doesn't seem to fit through the foil head of most 'leccy razors.

    I think this is a definite gap in the market.

    I'm with the Phillips crew here. Whilst it's not as close as a razor (is anything?) when on leave I find that after a couple of days of wet shaving, the Phillips Cool Shave works a treat. And it's waterproof and has a squeezy button for delivering a burst of Nivea for that extra comfort :)
     
  6. An electric razor? Whatever next? Buy yourself a Wilkinson's Safety Razor, some spare blades, a lather brush, some soap and a flannel.

  8. The shaving brush links are well timed - I always used my old man's (ex-CG) but dropped it and cracked the body open.

    I'd put in the sink to drain and dry off so I could repair it and the stupid mare I'm married to binned it. I was a little upset about that.
