Most guys take all the time and online research they need to find the perfect HD TV or new tech. But when it comes to the device you'll probably be putting to your face every morning, we neglect to do our homework. Instead, we walk into the store and either pick the first electric razor we see or the one that will cost us the least.
Take our word for it when we say that you should put more thought into what electric shaver you choose, especially since they all offer different pros and cons. The right electric razor for you will leave you looking good every morning while providing a comfortable shave in the process.
Shaving has always been a part of human hygiene and can be tracked back to the Stone Age. The tradition of shaving and the tools have changed over centuries. The double edged (safety) razor was patented in 1904 by King C. Gillette and became a popular tool for men who were tired of getting nicks and cuts from straight razors. Many still prefer DE razors because the quality of the close shave is better than electric and cartridge razors. Some choose safety razors over the electric ones because it doesn’t require a battery or a cord. Some prefer safety razors over cartridge razors because of durability, less irritation from shaves, and cheaper refills.
