Man Mower™ - male-grooming EDC with added comfort and ease

£6,392

Manmowers are the future of your chin, precision-milled to last your lifetime in the Midlands, England.  Two barrels of stainless steel blades scissor your hair progressively down to a grade '0' as you roll the mower about your face.  (TECHNICAL VIDEO BELOW) 

The more you mow the more trimmed you become.  It's really as simple as that.  Or check out the reviews and technical detail lower down the page.

The big shave brands and newer subscription services keep you hooked on so-called disposable blades, polluting the planet.  And messy, noisy electric trimmers need constant recharging.  Is this really the best men can get?  


How and Why :

We were fed up with the task of face maintenance.  It was all too much hassle, too many rules, too much money, too much stuff, or crap in the landfill.  So we invented something better ..

Why you need one :

Your manmower™ is the only device that can give you a controlled short beard anywhere and everywhere with no fuss, no waste, and in full enjoyment.  

As the cleanest trimmer out there, you could use it anywhere.  But just cos you CAN doesn't mean you HAVE TO shave in the subway.  It's a no-maintenance, easy to use, simple to clean, 'no-brainer' tool for any bathroom.

Technical Stuff:

MANMOWER™ = Is 3 parts making 2 barrels, and a handle and/or end caps. An inner part forms an inner barrel and catches  hair, and a comb part sits over an outer part to form the outer barrel.  The comb rolls on your face and covers 10 blades on the outer part which cut your hair by shearing against 18 blunt blades on the inner.  As the comb rolls on the face and picks up hair the hair is directed around the comb so that hair is not pulled from your face as it is cut.

METRO™ = The metro's familiar and comfortable to use handle gives you the most effective way to mow your face so far, and adds a lot of leverage and makes longer strides possible. This also means more better and faster trimming : 

  • promoting a mowing action that naturally rolls the inner blades during mowing - for quicker trimming and added comfort; and having
  •  smooth rounded ends that massage your face as you mow; 
  • a curved form that sits in your palm to allow easy manipulation reaching all parts of your hair; and
  • a maximum hair capture core, which means that if you don't find maintenance time in front of your mirror, you can trim anywhere else with no bother.

The metro™ is your day-to-day mower.  It's comfortable and easy to use, requires no maintenance or products and is perfect for the simplest bathroom.  And also good for on the go, with a maximum hair-capture core, and small self-contained travel portability.  


NEW COMB = The comb's material reduces its weight and allows smoother, freer mowing.  The new surface gives super-comfortable contact against skin, developed to :

Also available:

A limited number of the manmower monster™, see here for more information, promo below:

Risks and challenges

The mower is not an electric trimmer, and is not quick it's controlled. Approximately 5% of previous backers have either failed to operate the mower or perhaps to understand this point. However Kickstarter has been a great way to find feedback and it is now clear that the instructions were inadequate, so this has been reviewed and usage videos have been produced.

The best way is to clean shave first and grow to love your mowing style. Mowing requires CONVICTION or it will not work. Timidity may lead to plucking, and viceversa. Refunds available after 1 month if instructions are followed and the mower has been used reasonably.

The device has been proven to be completely capable of maintaining stubble day-to-day tested over years, and typically needs use of some kind perhaps every 3-5 days. Others may prefer it as a travel or touch-up trimmer once the learning curve has been overcome.

The blades are not shipped sharp as there is no real need, given the mowers use a shearing action. However for the absolute finest of hair, or the impatient, you can always sharpen the outer blades from the get-go with a standard emery board, but we will not take responsibility for any nicks. That said, the comb should always overhang the cut, but be careful.
