About the Trimmer
Trimming facial hair has been a very simple task over the last decade. The main reason behind such simplification is the emergence of trimmers. Trimmers are a versatile grooming appliance for both men and women that help us to groom our facial and other body hairs with great efficiency in a very short span of time. Comparatively, they are safe, portable, and easy to use. One of the key features of trimmers is that they do not scratch our skin like conventional trimmers. In conventional trimming, a blade is scratched over the skin to remove the hair in that part. With modern trimmers, safety is the key priority, we can trim without a single scratch on the skin.

Keeping the sharpness of your blade intact for your needs wise-consideration while buying the trimmers. The material of the blade determines the lifespan of the sharpness of the blade. Different types of trimmers have different types of blade material. The blade of your trimmer is usually made of the materials listed below.1. Ceramic
Ceramic blades are considered the finest blade used in trimmers. As the ceramics have very low heat conductivity, they don’t heat which makes them less vulnerable to the wear and tear effects.

Titanium blades are the longest-lasting blades. They are stronger than any alloy blades and keep their sharpness intact for the longest period. Such blades are very popular and usually found in the trimmers from Philips and Braun. Most often, the trimmers with titanium blades are marketed as ’self-sharpening’. They keep their sharpness intact for years without even oiling.3. Japanese steel
Japanese steel blades are very close to ceramic and titanium blades in terms of quality. Japanese steels are probably the highest quality steel in the world. You may not find a lot of trimmers with Japanese steel as they are expensive and used in high-end products. A few of the top manufacturers use Japanese blades. They are renowned for their strength and durability.4. Steel Alloys

Here is the list of blades material usually found in the trimmer.
- Stainless Steel
- Chromium Steel
