    Whew! Wasn't sure I should click on this'n! :)

    I've got a Wahl hair cuttin thing with beard attachments. I'm also newly returned to beardism & haven't used it for that yet. In the past, I've always been scissors & comb.

    Got a wee personal hair trimmer I use to cut the twigs from around my mouth.

    I use the same full size trimmer I use for what little hair is left on top of my head.

    I asked the girl who cuts my hair what she would recommend (given that I did not want to spend what she has to spend for commercial stuff) and she recommended this: https://wahlusa.com/products/lithium-ion-trimmer-9854-600

    Plenty of attachments so you can get to everything your heart desires, priced right and does a real good job.

    Trimmed very close, less than a 1/4".
    Clean border lines at cheek, neck and moustache.

    Ok, with that I HIGHLY recommend the Philips Norelco OneBlade. Without a guard, it cuts DARN near razor blade close. Guards trim nicely but not when it’s long. When it’s long, I use my Wahl hair trimmer for head and beard.

    I’ve got a grey/yellow corded remington that I distinctly remember them advertising as being “indestructible”. Has served me well for years. Cuts super close without a guard and comes with more attachments than you can shake a stick at.

    It's great, keep a long charge, tons of good attachments, super sharp.. very sharp. My husband didn't realize there were capable of cutting his balls off.. but other that that, we love them!

    I have that model, probably had it for 4 - 5 years and it works great. Holds a charge still, and if it finally does die half way through a trim, about 5 minutes on the charger gives you another couple minutes of run time.

    Respect the beard my friends, let it grow. Just colored mine and people now act like they are afraid of me. I guess I don't have that Santa image anymore, but I like it. Some PHD egghead should get a 5 mil grant from UNC to study this.

    My barber recommended a Wahl trimmer about 7 years ago and it still works great.

    I cannot stand heat. This month makes a year I've let mine grow. It’s wasn’t bad, and if I can stand it, anyone can.

    You and me both. I've been rocking mine for a decade now but since 2015 I've gone Grizzly Adams. I should move to Alaska...

    Another vote for the OneBlade. I can't have a beard at work but can have a goatee and have used it to trim it up, the only downside of the OneBlade is that if you have any substantial length (phrasing...) the guard is too short. I have a Norelco that @Burt Thumber posted that I use if I have a good length going, my only comment about it is it's like a Lego set...so many parts. I threw away the ones I didn't need.

    I usually get a year or two out of my hair clippers before they are toasted...my hair is tough... I use a DE razor and can dull a Feather blade in two shaves, but the OneBlade has kept up pretty well and use it when I travel.
