its looking good, is there no make? possibly embossed on the surface?

the plastic is just right for that out of the packet brand spanking new look.

It may just be the angle, but the guard on the bottom seems thin

I was thinking that about the guard too. Also the cord seems too floppy: it shouldn't just fall to the ground in a straight line like that.

Apart from that it looks very sexy.

Thanks for the comments.

The guard width is the correct width as the designs dimmensions are taken from an existing trimmer, but I will change the angle.

But your dead right about the cord and about branding the product.

Thanks again for the advice

The cord also looks too thin. It should probably 1.5x or so thicker.
Nice shiny plastic....

Did you light this with HDRI? How did you get the reflections in the plastic?

I feel you should maybe place the object in an environment that complements the function of the object. For example: it could be placed on some outdoor surface, like brickwork or tiles. It can still be a clean and neet environment. I just feel that the reflections in the plastic look a bit out of place in the current studio environment.

Great work though

It could be a bit too relective. I have to agree some branding would be good to help breakup the surface a bit.
