Calling all manly men!
If you have successfully hit puberty, and passed through the age of peach fuzz, it might be time to start considering what to do with all of that scraggly facial hair that is now pouring out of every orifice on that handsome mug of yours.
Although you have two options, clean shaven or bearded, we here at menprovement are strong believers in the lost art of growing a sweet ass beard (something Sean still can’t do ;)). Quite simply, growing a beard is just more manly, tough, and sexy.
It’s a well known fact that guys with beards have better relationships, get more girls, make more money, and are way more spiritual.
While growing a beard may not change the quality of your relationships or bank account (who knows, it might), beards are a great way to express your own unique style, standout from the crowd, and they are quite frankly just a great time saver. (shaving can really suck sometimes)
And, if you opt for the less manly, clean shaven route, having a good pair of trimmers will make your life that much easier on the days that you simply don’t feel like whipping out the badger hair brush and safety razor.
So, without any more beating around the bush, here is our list of some of the best beard trimmers on the market.
The Best Beard Trimmers Around
1) Panasonic ER-GB40-S
Our personal favorite beard trimmer on the market, the Panasonic Er-GB40-S offers 19 adjustable settings from 1mm-10mm making it perfect for any beard length.
With stainless steel, fast action, hypo-allergenic blades, the Panasonic offers one of the most efficient and precise trims on the market. It is also built with longevity in mind featuring water shutters for easy maintenance, an AC recharger, and a cleaning brush.
At around $40 on amazon, you are getting an absolute steal for your money, buying a product that will last you years, and help you keep your manly scruff looking well kempt and suave.
2) Philips Norelco Multigroom 5100
Coming in close second is the Philips Norelco Multigroom 5100. This beard trimmer is for the techy, “artistic” type who likes to use tons of tools for perfectly sculpting their facial hair.
This trimmer comes with 7 tools for all-in-one face and head styling including: full-size metal guard trimmer, hair clipping comb, beard comb, stubble comb, mini foil shaver, detail trimmer and nose trimmer.
In addition to the plethora of styling tools, the Phillips Multigroom also comes with self sharpening blades (a huge plus) and 18 different length settings.
If that wasn’t enough for you, you can also embrace your inner street racer with the “Turbo Boost” setting for rapid results on the thickest of hair. And what’s more is that the Phillips Multigroom features a lithium ion battery for up to 60 minutes of cordless use.
So if you are feeling artsy, Vin Diesel-ish, or just plain practical, Phillips offers something for everyone with their all in one grooming tool.
3) Remington MB4040
For only the most spartan of readers, the Remington beard trimmer is simplicity at its core. If you are looking for a great trimmer/stubble remover, then look no further.

4) The Manly Way
This article wouldn’t be complete without including a shout out to the most manly way of shaving..the straight and safety razor.
If you decide that you aren’t manly (or old) enough to grow a beard, you can now reclaim your lost masculinity by upping your razor game with a badass straight razor or safety razor.
While there are several great blades on the market, the common consensus is that merkur takes home first prize for the best safety razor. Made in germany, this long handled razor is extra sturdy and offers one of the closest shaves available.
And of course, we couldn’t leave without giving a shout out to our friends over at the Art of Manliness and their incredible in house straight razor. This meticulously crafted beauty is the end all be all for the clean shaver, and even though it’s a little pricey, it’s worth it because you will never have to buy another razor ever again.
So there you have it, our list of the best beard trimmers on the market. So go forth and decide for yourself which is the best! Get that scraggly fuzz and turn it into a manly masterpiece.
Until next time!
