    I never shaved daily, but like a ~3 days of stubble on my face.
    Currently I have gone over a week without shaving and I am thinking of growing a beard, but I don't want it long. I want a close shaven beard. It grows in a nice full patteren on my face and neck. I trimmed up my neck some.

    How does one keep a beard a desired length and trim everywhere to make it look nice. Is there anything I should be doing? do I use a bic razor to shape it.

    I'd take a pic, but I am wanting on camera.

    This is a brand new product from Remington. I set mine to about 5MM...

    Whatever trimmer you get, use the 2 guard. That's a good, groomed yet scruffy link.

    I have a Norelco trimmer which has lasted better than the Remington I did have. The batteries give out eventually.

    Regardless of brand, they all work about the same. i have found that it works best to set the trimmer about one setting longer than you want your beard to be until it really grows out and then trim it back. The result is a little denser than otherwise. I suppose it allows undergrowth to develop. I dunno.

    After you get to the length you want, you can take the guard off and VERY CAUTIOUSLY trim the shape of the beard's profile. I'm talking millimeters here, but it makes a difference.

    Beard trimmers are handy little gadgets.

    I use a 2 guard and get called scruffy all the time. But then that turns into homeless chic before long.

    Beard trimmers are awesome, yes. I would be careful about making it too short; I've been told it gives "beard burn" if you know what I mean...

    I personally trim with a 2 guard all over, fade into a 1 on my neck, then shave everything else below my adam's apple and shaping the "beard line". It works pretty well, and it leaves it long enough to feel soft and not scratchy.
