Cool, what's not in T-BHP

I was looking for this one Philips HQ6940 3 Headed: Philips Shaver: For Men: Dual Blade: Flipkart.com

Any feedback on such shavers? Does it really help?

I assume that this is allowed in the cabin baggage of Air crafts. Right?

I normally do a wet shave with a Gillette, but when rushed use a cheap Panasonic battery shaver, uses 2 AA cells. Bought it for 600 baht in Thailand around two years back. Works very well, and easy to clean.

I bought this Philips HQ6970 3 Headed: Philips Shaver: For Men: Dual Blade: Flipkart.com from flipkart and it does a good job. Only issue is the skin tends to become dry after shaving unlike the old good cheap razor.

Default Re: Which electric shaver/razor do you recommend?

after years of shunning, I have started to use my Panasonic ES3833S Pro-Curve Wet/Dry Travel Shaver with Case, Silver again. What I realized is that I was trying to use it as fast as a regular razor and cutting myself. Be a little patient and it works like a charm. I used eneloop batteries and I have forgotten when I charged it last, probably 6 months ago. I am not a regular shaver, currently I am keeping a stubble, only shave the area under the chin, still wonderful!

for trimming I use a full size hair trimmer (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00006IVEQ) at number 1 or number 2 comb depending upon I need a stubble or a thick beard. It's other use is trimming my kids hair until they are ready for a barber shop, and fixing my side burns every few days

Flipkart gives an elongated delivery dates. I am sure they will deliver this to you tomorrow or the day after (Based on my experiences with a couple of recent orders.).

If you stay at a place which has no plug point near the mirror, you are stuck. Cordless ones are usually better IMO. The panasonic trimmer I use needs charging less than once a month.

Question Re: Which electric shaver/razor do you recommend?

Which would be the best of electric shavers, now? I would like to buy one here in US for use in India. I am looking at 'Phillips Norelco' series, and there are plethora of models with lots of features.

Please suggest some models and features one need to look out for in electric shavers.

Hi, Being a Philips user - in the past, I would recommend the Cruzer from Braun. Comfortable, and over time doesn't lose its performance. But finally its your call. My only suggestion; no matter which brand, try it with skin oils (Like K series Alpha). Makes a world of difference.

Due to licensing reasons Philips is labelled Norelco in the US. I currently have an 8 series dry shaver (three rows of cutters) which I bought in Dubai in 1911. The exact number is market specific. My son got a 7 series wet/dry shaver at the same time.

I had posted this on the home appliance thread.
sgiitk was kind enough to point me to this thread.

Has anyone been able to source the "Made in India" Parker safety razors here in India? Ironically they only export it to the western world.

Merkur razors are among the finest, and demand an even higer premium thanks to the "Made in Germany" tag.

Interesting thread. Can i use this for asking one big question

Electric shavers are useful for the beard/chin area. I had used the dry shavers and they really made my skin rough. I now use the regular razor - Mach 3 for the beard

What about Head Shave ? I am voluntarily bald and i prefer Mach 3 to any other including Fusion etc for keeping it bald. I shave my head every week, however at times i do it between the week.
