    The Shaver Debate

    Never used a manual, tbh. Doesn't really appeal to me, either. However the electric I have now is cutting me up a fair treat. Might need a new one for me birthday, I'd wager.

    Electric is soo much easier (and quicker), though the shave isn't as close.

    I use an electric. Nice to have it all done within a couple of minutes of waking up.

    Manual. If my electric could be plugged into the wall in Japan, without having to buy an adapter, then I would be using that.

    I have a "strong whisker", so while I used an electric one for year, it simply didn't do a good enough job. So I've now perfected the art of shaving in the shower without requiring a mirror, although I do check up after I get out.

    Both. Manual usualy, but if I want that rugged, outdoorsy red neck look some chicks like, I'll do a light going over with the electric thingy.

    Ive had a few electics. For a long time I thought it was the way to go.

    However a wet shave with a disposable razor is quicker, easier and closer.

    Manual, as I don't want a permanent shade like Simon Katich.
