If there was ever a time to issue a “WT…F”, I’d say it’s right about now.
You’re looking at the GoateeSaver, a medieval grooming device used only by “real men”, (according to the company’s slogan). It’s actually a modern-age mouthpiece designed to give your face fuzz that perfect contour.
It works by basically covering the surrounding areas of the goatee with its plastic rim, while the shaver bites down on the internal clamps (like those god awful dental x-ray tabs) to hold it in place. Simple enough, and looks like it would work.
Scott Bonge, the GoateeSaver’s inventor, describes his frustration with the previously accepted method of trimming his goat:
“I was tired of being frustrated with trying to get my own goatee even on both sides of my face,” he said. “If it ended up crooked, I would just shave it off. So one day I thought, if I’ve got this issue, other guys have to have the same problem.”
Conceptually, It puts one in mind of the requisite bowl required to achieve that classic (but hideous) “bowl cut” hairstyle, but the GoateeSaver has a modern android-like design that could potentially inspire nightmares for those 13 and under.
Only bikers, wrestlers, and poseurs need apply.
