Review of Remington MB-45
One of regular readers writes in:
I have been trimming my beard weekly for probably 20 years with a succession of Wahl trimmers. Why a Wahl trimmer? Because it is just like the one that the barber uses to finish up your haircut. It is black and you plug it in and it buzzes away. There is a plastic attachment that you put on the cutting head which sort of regulates how long the beard hair will be when you finish. You are supposed to lubricate it after every use, but when the little tube of oil is empty, that's that.
Thinking I might as well have a beard trimmer at the house in NH (instead of carrying the Wahl back and forth), I did some Internet research and bought a Remington MB-45. It is now a different world. This trimmer is able to trim my beard in half the time, leaves the beard hairs soft to the touch and accurately adjusts to the beard hair length that I want. It is rechargealble, can be used with cord or cordless (throw it in you bathroom kit for traveling) and the blades are titanium so they stay sharp. Also, no lubrication necessary. The settings for beard hair length can even give the younger generation that "stubble look". The trimmer also has a small pop up trimmer for shaping hard to reach places.
So what to do with my old Wahl? That's easy. For another $30, I have Remington MB-45 trimmers at my house in NH and at my house in MO.
Remington sells the MB-45 at their website for $33.99.
