If we're talking about nose trimmers, any advice for a good nose trimmer? I actually do use my 58mm scissors but perhaps the time has come for the real thing. Lots of options on Amazon but I've no idea what to look for.

Battery powered nose hair trimmers are currently a mixed bag.

Ten-15 years ago  Panasonic built bullet proof trimmers, but when this industry outsourced Japan for PRC, every advancement in design has been undermined by efforts at “value” engineering.

Currently the best 1 AA unit trimmer head is the  CONAIRMAN  pictured below.



Point scoring by me on a 1-5 scale 5 being best:

Overall Design and
materials : 4

Head design: 5

Head materials: 5

Body design: 5

Body materials: 3 flimsy plastic
 

Smoothness of entry/exit: 5

Time to trim a nostril thoroughly: 4

Minimization of hair pulling and tickle: 5

Washable head without removal: 5

Ease of disassembly for further cleaning: 4

Durability: ?

Ease of Battery change: 4

Battery life: 3

Ear trimming: 3 some of the more traditional  heads work better on ears. I own one of each.

My satisfaction: 4-5

Distilled: needs better build materials to go with a great trim head.

Find at:  chain pharmacies or online.

Recommend: yes

P.S.: AAA would be better form factor, but I have not found one that trims nearly as well and they eat batteries in my experience

Great review, Sgt.....

That one was the best I'd seen on Amazon yesterday, really glad to see you give it a good review, thank you!

Just be prepared for it to feel cheap, if you buy.

But mine works pretty well.

Back to the quest for a rotary nose hair trimmer. Zwilling appears to have tackled the design problem without batteries, which was my original hope.

https://www.swissknifeshop.com/collections/zwilling-grooming-gear/products/rotary-nose-and-ear-hair-trimmer-by-zwilling-j-a-henckels

Alas, it appears too big for integration into a SAK, but the proof of concept of a finger powered rotary trimmer exists.

Maybe a micro hedge trimmer approach already used on some battery powered trimmers could be scaled to fit in SAK.

Maybe a wind-up design?

Reckon u r jesting 😀, but if not, I think your idea has some merit on  two paths.

1.) a squeezing tool that ratchets up a spring that spins a blade head; and

2.) a SAK is a whole bunch of springs and tools opening and closing cycles that might be harnessed to store spring energy.



Just some fleeting thoughts.

I was not so much jesting as much as being a little bit imaginative and whimsical.... I think if it wound up like an old fashioned watch, something might be done......

Better yet, grow a moustache, and nobody will realize you have nose hairs.

While looking today at CVS in the grooming section for the latest in power nose trimmers, because of the amusement we’ve all been getting from this thread, I noticed that the there is an astonishing amount of paraphernalia for beard and mustache grooming. Way back when I was a lonely tree age broncin’ buck and went through a three year beard and a two year mustache I never did anything but wash the fricking face fur with Dial soap. These days I would be afraid to give up clean face and nose hair trimming for fear of the steep learning curve of how to care and feed one’s beard to make it clean and shiny and conditioned. Oh, MY!!!!! What the beards are doing for grooming today just blew me away! I was like Jim Flippin’ Bridger compared to these handsome, haired over bucks today. As long as I didn’t find a ground squirrel living in my beard, I thought I was achieving peak grooming and hygiene.I was pretty rough behind the edges in those days. But I means well.  :D

I don't do anything special with mine. I cut it off when it gets long and grow it again. When it gets long enough to be irritating, I just start over. Beard balm and moustache mousse is for the metro special folks with more money than sense.....

When I shower, I wash my beard with the same shampoo I use on my head.  When I comb my hair, I comb my beard with the same comb I use on my head.  Other than that, I don't do anything with it.

I sometimes use peanut butter or margarine for my beard. But not on purpose, just because I'm a messy eater.

I tried growing a beard during lockdown.
After three weeks I shaved it into a goatee.
"What do you think? " I said to Mrs Cakemonster.
"Of what?" she replied.
I'm 50 year old and can grow a beard a Border Terrier can lick off.... :facepalm:

Some people pay out the nose for beard care products, and you've got them all snookered.
