in reply to My preferred shaving tool:
My preferred tool? Probably a laser.
Even with a "safety" razor, I almost always cut my neck somewhere. Doesn't matter if it's a new blade or not. Know that Simpsons episode where Homer tried a straight razor? Yeah, my last shave was like that.
Electric razors leave my entire face bright red, so all day long I have people asking if I somehow got a sunburn just on my lower face.
So the obvious option ("Just grow it out") sounds good... except that I have a sparse, patchy beard.
One of these days I really need to look into that laser option.
