Take a look here, and tell me if you have any experience with something similar.
Charles is in a bind. His beard has grown out hunter-style, and his Braun shaver-trimmer just can't handle the bulk. He wants one tool to substitute for now, for heavy trimming, then tidying up. This looks like it might fill the bill.
What do you think?
UPDATE: I went with this one which I found at Wal-mart, along with half a dozen cold-aids. They carried Wahls, but not that particular model, and this one had the widest shaving blade amongst the rest.
Hey, he don't like it, he can give it back. I might need it in a few years. Or, ahem, I might like to put on a bathing suit.
