Does almost what it says on the box
on 13 February 2013
Like many wet shavers, I'm appalled at the cost of quality multi-blades so was interested to try this out, given that it was sold at 50% off, so about £11.50 with postage. Claims of 150 'new' shaves are over-inflated but the device does prolong blade life considerably. I've used it for 6 months now. I used to stretch a blade for 3 or 4 weeks (my beard is not very thick), with daily use but now use the same blade for about 12 weeks before discarding, so maybe 90-odd shaves. So the sharpener pays for itself and starts saving money pretty quickly.
Works best with foam rather than gel shave cream.
I bought one for my son, so I'd say it's a 'buy' but if you have a heavy beard or skin that's intolerant of a anything but the sharpest blade, then you may not be so chuffed. But it's worth a go as you can save heaps.
Update: 26FEB, used over 6 months now and only on 3rd blade. So it's paid for itself quickly.
