Another way to deal with that "stubble" left when your closest trim with razor or scissors isn't quite close enough: burn it. First separate the stub into fuzz with scissors, bodkin or needle. Turn it to the bottom of the rod. Quickly (less than two seconds) flame it with match or lighter. If you take a second too long, you'll smoke and/or burn through the thread. But done properly, the fuzzy stub will disappear.
