    Just adding something: I hereby attest that R’ Shurkin, talmid of R’ Moshe, told me, personally, halacha l’maasa, that lift and cut is mutar lechatchila.

    If I recall correctly, the lomdus was in relying on the rambam, and holding that electric shavers of which their blades are blunter than a razor’s and rely on speed to cut, are like mispirayim k’ein ta’ar which the rambam mater’s.

    It takes a blade as sharp as a razor to be a ta’ar. One blade which cuts hair even when in slow motion. That is all I have to say about that.


    I know bochurim in litvish yeshivos who are not shaving and not yet married.



    If I were to hazard a guess, they are probably Chassidish and they are in the minority, correct? Such cases are certainly the exception and not the rule in the Litvish yeshiva world.
