What’s It All About?
Remington PG6171 The Crafter is a trimmer for your whole body. The package includes ELEVEN different accessories and a travel bag. Considering its price, it’s a totally jam-packed kit, but is it worth your hard-earned cash? Let’s find out!
Remington is known for quality grooming and trimming products, so you know this one probably wouldn’t disappoint. We’ll get to that in a minute. Let’s start off by checking what’s in the box.
Once you open the packaging, you’ll be greeted by the trimmer and eleven accessories which include 6 guide combs, an ear trimmer, nose trimmer, detailer, and mini foil shaver. There’s also a storage bag with a zipper that’s highly convenient if you travel a lot.
Design and Visual Features
Just like all other products in Remington’s Beard Boss series, the PG6171 is a high-quality product. Upon closer inspection, I can confirm that it’s made from top shelf-materials, and it sits wonderfully in your hand.
Performs Like a Boss
Getting down to the most important and relevant part of my Remington PG6171 review – does it really treat the beard like a boss?
In a word, yes. It may not perform every function like a pro, but it truly does deliver. The trimmer has 10 different length settings which range from 2 to 20mm.
The combs are easy to clip on and take off. The stainless steel blades are sharp and built to last.
The other six combs are fixed, but nevertheless, provide the same level of performance. If you want a neatly trimmed beard but prefer to keep it on the longer side, look no further.
You can also use the PG6171 as a foil shaver, but don’t expect any miracles here. But I wouldn’t hold it against Remington in this regard considering the low price tag. Of course, it’s not going to shave like a good shaver, but when push comes to shave it will get the job done.
Also included in the package is the ear and nose trimmer. Compared to several other trimmers that I’ve tried, I’d say that the PG6171 delivers better than average results, especially for nose hair. But you should know that sometimes you might have to make multiple passes to get all the hairs.
Another great thing about the Remington Beard Boss is that it is completely waterproof, so you can even use it in the shower.
Besides this, it also has a 5-minute quick charge option, in case your battery runs out of juice in the middle of your beard grooming endeavor. It will give you enough power to finish the job off quickly.
As its blades are self-sharpening, they require no maintenance at all. As for cleaning, just rinse the PG6171 under running water and leave it to air-dry afterward. It’s as simple as that.
At the end of this Remington The Crafter review, I’d like to point out that it comes with a limited 2-year warranty and 60-day money back guarantee.
