Philips OneBlade

Philips OneBlade Body edition

So after Marcus quite famously shaved the wrong area of his body with the Philips OneBlade last time round (listen to that episode here!) Philips have released a body version of their very popular OneBlade shaver! (So, there’s no need for Marcus to keep using his OneBlade in the wrong part of his body now. There’s a proper tool for that job now! Think, we’re due a cut of the sales Philips! Marcus’ unfortunate use of the OneBlade has spawned a new product line!

So, what does the Philips OneBlade do?

Philips OneBlade Face + Body: Features

First of all the Philips OneBlade does everything that the original OneBlade did previously. You can trim your beard with one of the three stubble comes, which come in a variety of lengths. There’s 1mm, 3mm and 5mm. However, the OneBlade now comes with a body comb, which is 3mm, which you can use in any direction.

As the OneBlade does not shave like a regular shaver, i.e. getting really close. You’re able to use this to your advantage and go against the grain and easily shave off any length of any hair from any part of your body! Remember to change the blade though! There’s one for the body and one for the face!

Another tip would be to use the skin guard if your shaving in sensitive areas as this gives an extra layer of protection.

Furthermore, if you wish to get that super slick even length of stubble, use the click on combs to get that model like even stubble length. Plus, as the OneBlade follows the contours of your face, this allows you to get one super comfortable shave! To be even more precise and slick, utilise the double sided blade of the OneBlade to style those edges and create clean lines that everyone looks for!

Speaking of the blades, they’re super long lasting! Consequently when you come to changing them, this is a hassle free process. Though, this only takes place every four months, depending on useage.

As a tip, you can use the OneBlade as a wet shaver, or a dry shaver. It lasts 45mins on a single charge too! (Which takes 8 hours)

For all you good side of the force fans this Shaver helps to reduce skin irritation by gliding comfortably  along the skin, even if you haven’t shaved for a few days! The body is silver and turquoise with Symbols of the Resistance on the body. There are even subtle references to light speed on the etchings of the handle. The Jedi Logo lights up in use, so you can feel like a real Jedi on those cold winter mornings!

Philips Shaver Series SW6700

This shaver brings to life the X Wing, why? As it allows you to have a quick and close shave. Since the shaver automatically recalibrates to every curve of the neck and face, mimicing the fluid nature of the X-Wing. The design follows the nature of Poe Dameron’s X-Wing right down to the tiny details such as scratched metal finishings and red stripes. Also as with other Shavers the on turbo button flickers during it’s use.

Also, everyone’s favourite modern character BB-8 even makes an appearance on the Philips Star Wars range. The iconic orange and white colour scheme is throughout the design which incorporates the Philips ComforCut Blade system.

Philips Shaver Series SW3700

Finally but by no means least, also incorporating ComfortCut blades the Philips SW3700 has an R2-D2 design. As with many other shavers the on-off switch blinks and the panneling lights up too!

The Future Of Shaving – Phillips One Blade!


Are you a bearded man who needs help in sculpting that PERFECTLY shaped beard? Need help trimming down that monster beard? Well Philips have got just the tool for you….

Throughout history the fully grown beard was seen as a staple of masculinity and power. Many famous men have had beards, Emperor Hadrian sported a beard much like our own and started a trend for many Emperor’s after him, Francis Drake boasted at how he had singed the King Of Spain’s beard. Then came the 20th Century and the fresh faced look (aka like a baby) became a dominant tone. Then came the tools to sculpt the cleaner look, and the male grooming market boomed, and now we have the popularity of the beard and most famously the “Hipster Beard” and grooming tools for hipsters and those wanting a cleaner look started to look a little stale.

Until now! The Philips One Blade, a tool that even Thor himself would be jealous of, is not a shaver or a trimmer – its just a blade. One Blade. (Which can be used either for a wet or dry shave) Giving the ease of use and functionality that no other blade gives in being able to achieve a wide variety of facial hair styles, be that a rough and ready stubble look or the longer bearded men among us the Philips One Blade can help with that. All by combining rotary shaver and the regular trimmers in one tool no man shall have any excuse for a poorly tamed beard.
