Why We Made an Electric Trimmer

by Luke Tyson

For nearly a decade, Supply has been creating the best single-blade razors on the market. Now after nine years and four iterations of our famous single-blade razors, we’ve decided to take a bold leap with our newest product, the Supply Trimmer

Why did we decide to make an electric razor?

The answer is simple. Our mission has always been to provide world-class grooming products that help men live confidently and to be their best selves every day. So while we still believe that our single-blade razors are the best way to get a close, comfortable shave, we know that they aren’t always the best tool for the job.

There are few specific uses that our single-blade razors can’t provide that we wanted to provide with our new electric trimmer.

  • Trimming down a longer beard
  • Styling and edging facial hair
  • Getting a close shave, even in a hurry

The same way we revolutionized shaving with our original Single Edge and subsequent Single Edge 2.0, SE, and Pro, we believed we could do the same with the Trimmer.

Over the last two years we’ve spent hundreds of hours designing, testing, and redesigning to bring you what we believe is the best electric trimmer on the market.

Before we tell you what makes the Supply Trimmer truly special, let’s recap what makes these other razors not-so-special

Foil Razors: This is a foil razor. These shavers work by oscillating blades beneath a thin metal screen, designed for close shaves. However, they often lead to skin irritation and struggle with the contours of your face, leading to an uneven shave.

Rotary Razors: With their spinning blades under a perforated head, they're crafted to adapt to facial contours. Yet, they can pull on the hair, causing discomfort, and miss the precision needed for perfect styling.


Beard Trimmers: Standard trimmers might manage your beard's length but fail to provide the closeness or comfort needed for daily use, often resulting in irritation and uneven cuts.

At Supply, everything we make is the result of being just a little too obsessed with how you take care of the hair and skin on your face. So, you can look and feel your best every time you use our products.

Our new trimmer is no different.

After two years and thousands of hours of R&D, obsessing over every detail, we've engineered the closest shave you'll get from any electric razor: the MicroBlade. This one-inch, stainless steel, dual-sided marvel transforms a rugged beard into a smooth shave in seconds. 

Its innovative dual-faced blade design lifts and cuts hair in both directions to make your morning shave smoother, easier and irritation-free.

The outer blade protects your skin. The inner blade cuts your hair clean at the surface.

The inner blade is sharper than anything else on the market, and only moves side-to-side. So you don’t have to worry about pulling or tugging.

We equipped it with a pivoting head so the blade always stays flush with your skin, giving you an even shave on the first pass.

The faceted body is easy to grip and fits comfortably in your hand for effortless maneuvering around every angle of your face. 

This trimmer can take you from weekend scruff, to ready for your Monday morning in less than 2 minutes. So, you’re out the door, feeling confident in how you look no matter where you’re going.

No irritation. No stubble left behind. No wasting money on buying the same grocery store trimmer, over and over again.

But we didn’t forget about our bearded brothers.

You don’t have to take it all the way down if you don’t want to. Our 12 different guard settings let you keep it as long or as short as you want to.  Our extra sharp blade is only one inch wide so you’ll be able to line it up better than your barber.

We wanted to give you something that does what you need, when you need it to.

So, we equipped it with a lithium ion battery that lasts up to 90 total minutes on one full charge from it's custom induction stand. The waterproof body lets you shave with shaving cream, and even in the shower if that’s your thing. You’ll only need to replace the blade every 3-4 or months, so you’re still saving money on blades when you go with Supply.

As always, we just want you to love your morning shave. It doesn’t need to be inconvenient, irritating, or take 20 minutes if you don’t want it to.

We know you’ve got things to think about other than your shave, that's why we put so much thought into this.

It’ll get you looking good and out the door.

Whether you're crafting a clean shave, styling your beard, or defining the edges, the Supply Trimmer adapts to your needs, ensuring a precise, comfortable grooming experience.

So, this is your invitation to experience the ultimate in grooming technology. Take it for a risk-free test drive. We're confident that you'll experience not just a shave, but an upgrade to your whole morning routine.
