Review depends on...

First of all, I shave using a shavette or straight razor. In effect, the rating is conditioned by that. I would not change shaving method to be able to use the tool, I would go ahead and give it a one out of five, or zero if possible.
Frankly, you cannot be too precise with this tool and you still have to have an eye for detail, that's because when you get close to it the shaving is not ideal, if not actually impossible. Hence, I give it a three as it is being marketed quite as a highly efficient tool, but in reality it can be impractical. I also give a three, ergo a slightly above average consideration, because it is made of a strong and nice looking material.
The best way to use it is to put shaving soap on your face then use the tool to get an idea of the beard shape you are after and then put it over the soap and remove it with the tool. Then, you would shave the area which still has soap on. That works good when you need to reshape your beard lines, but if you are set and can shave well without the need of such tool, then it becomes useless. That means it is not a tool to use for each and every shave.
Hence, 3 out of 5.
