Trimmer for modern men

After using the Remington Beard Boss trimmer, my first thought was that this would be well suited for men who love beard art. This is because I found it to be a great hair sculpting and shaping tool rather than a shaver.

I found this very useful, especially if you have lots of long hair to trim. There is also a foil shaver and a detail trimmer with a rounded tip that allow for a closer shave.

In terms of ease of use, this machine has an extended neck that makes it easy to navigate your facial hair while trimming and at only one pound, it is considerably light. Even if you have never used a clipper or trimmer before, learning to use this one will take you only a few hours.

Features that really stand out in the Remington PG6171’s The Crafter

When you are using the Remington PG6171, there are some useful functionalities, most of which you cannot miss. For instance:

High-performance cordless trimmingTurbo modeSelf-sharpening stainless steel bladesAdjustable comb100% waterproofStorage case
The Remington PG6171’s lithium battery can run for three hours continuously. Additionally, it has a quick charge feature that only takes five minutes but provides enough juice for a full trim, a great functionality for when you are in a rush. However, remember to keep the batteries charged since you cannot use the machine when plugged in.
The Crafter can be used in either the normal or the turbo mode power settings. Turbo mode gives you the boost you need when dealing with a stubborn beard. It also makes beard detailing easier because I could achieve greater accuracy with the high speeds. The normal mode, however, is not very powerful.
The Remington Beard Boss Styler cuts really smoothly with the self-sharpening blades slicing through any hair type. This is the ideal trimmer if you always nick yourself when trimming your beard thanks to its rounded tips that simply glide over your skin.
One of the best features I liked during the Remington PG6171 review was the adjustable comb that has 15 length settings. You can use it to cut different beard sizes by easily locking-in the length you prefer, between two and twenty millimeters.
The Crafter is built with an outer rubber cover that is completely waterproof. You can use it in the shower for easy cleanup.
Included in the package is a handy storage bag that helps you keep all the eleven pieces in one place. You can also use it while traveling to ensure you do not lose any of your attachments.

Generally, this works perfectly and is a great buy.
