Okay metrosexuals, step away from those messy blades and cream and step up to an electric razor that might just remind you of your beloved shaving mess you deal with every morning. The Hitachi Rotary is an electric razor, yes, but its elongated shape might remind you of that old-fashioned razor to which you're so attached, and it's washable, too.


Just for fun, let's do a little poll and see how GizReaders are shaving these days. Ladies, you are both welcome, too. Blades or electric? Take the super-Giz poll after the jump.

I never shave in the shower anymore. Eczema.

I found that splashing cold water on face after a shower makes shaving much easier. But that doesn't mean that I want to be shaving while standing under a cold shower. I'll start shivering, and then come the facial lacerations.
