Easier, faster, cheaper, rechargeable, washable.
I’m pretty blown away by the Philips OneBlade. I was expecting a deconstructed electric razor or a souped up Gillette Power-style situation, but the OneBlade is more like the next evolution of beard trimmers.
The OneBlade can be used to get a close shave, edge, or trim down to your preferred length. It’s also washable and rechargeable, and the replaceable blades that last an estimated four months are already available on Subscribe and Save.
The OneBlade can be used in the shower or over the sink, with or without shaving cream or oil. To be clear, this is not going to give you a straight razor-close shave, but it’s going to get you 99.5% of the way there in no time and with no irritation.
Update 10/3/17: We finally got our hands on the OneBlade Pro, and we were not disappointed. It’s a far better looking product, and comes with a recharging stand, and a dial-a-length comb that replaces the easy-to-lose comb attachments of the original.
If you only ever use your OneBlade to shave, save some money and stick with the original, but if you’re a trimmer, we recommend ponying up for the Pro.
Update 3/20/18: The OneBlade is ready for your body.
