This is an easy way to create a 5 o'clock shadow on your beard at 9am. All you need to accomplish this is an electric hair razor like you would use on the hair on your head. You have to take the clips off so it's only the blade, and while it may seem dangerous it is actually safer then using a straight razor in terms of cutting yourself. What you have to do is just be careful and use the electric razor on your full beard, which should take around 2 minutes to complete. So, in 2 minutes you can go from a grizzly Adams full of beard to a nice 1 day old 5 o'clock shadow.
