Seit Luft an meinem Rücken kommt, rieche ich anscheinend besser. In der Ubahn setzten sich auf einmal wieder Fremde Menschen neben mich. Einen Stern Abzug, da ich beim letzten Zoo Besuch nicht mehr mit Bananen gefüttert würde.
I have body hair. A lot of body hair. Imagine a Silverback gorilla crossed with Steve Carell from "The Forty Year Old Virgin" if you want a visual. As such I'm always looking for the best and most efficient way to remove said body hair as it can be rather time consuming, so when my Bakblade "bigmouth" ran out of cartridges, I figured it was time for an upgrade.
Enter the Bakblade 2.0, I've had this thing about two months now and this is what I've observed. 1. The blade(s) are narrower than the original Bakblade. While it's only an inch or so, it does take longer to cover the same amount of area. 2. The angle of the blade(s) has been changed from the original. Its more "closed" now. The result of this is that I cannot seem to find an angle that will cut effectively with either blade. The original design by contrast was more open, and seemed to cut more readily regardless of the hair length. 3. It has two blade(s). This might seem like a silly gripe to some, but ultimately will have a greater cost when its time to replace them. The original model cut great with a single blade, even with long hair. 4. This new one is shorter than the original by several inches. If you're a large man, it may prove difficult to reach the whole back coming over the shoulder (the angle I find cuts best). This new model does fold, which is a nice feature, but has thus far been unnecessary to me.
All BakBlade has done is over complicate their design, with a less effective (though more polished) "upgrade." Form is supposed to follow function and BakBlade violated that rule. My recommendation is to go with still available BakBlade "bigmouth" model. Mine is over three years old and still works great with minimal maintenance
the bakblade is where its at, if youre humming and hawing about getting it, just take the leap. TRUST ME, im an animal and it made quick work of the back hair. it was easy, and as for all these people getting hacked up? they clearly dont know how a razor works. buy it and thank me later!
OK didn't have the highest of hopes for this product but I have to say I'm actually impressed. Some background, I'm as hairy as an ape, my back is absolutely covered with hair. With this I've kind of only managed to do my shoulders and upper back, but it's done a great job, the fact I can't really do my mid/lower back is more down to my flexibility than any shortcoming with the product. I also have several large moles, hasn't caused any problems with them.
I've read reviews where people have cut themselves and I'm struggling to think how that would happen. You'd have to be pretty hardcore in your use of the Bakblade and have an eccentric technique. As I said I'm really impressed
Lo compré pensando que sería un artilugio tipo teletienda que no valen para casi nada pero no. ES MUY ÚTIL. Es comodísimo y hasta en seco alcanzas a la espalda cómodamente. No sé cómo están afiladas las cuchillas y de qué material son, pero duran una barbaridad, apuran de una pasada y sin embargo es muy difícil cortarse. Está muy bien diseñado. Una sorpresa. Muy contento.
I don't often write reviews, but this product is good I really have to.
After having skin rashes from a waxing session last year I decided I needed to find another way of clearing my back hair. Hair removal creams and the like were potential solutions but I read enough accounts of skin burning to put me off them - plus I didn't really want to use chemicals.
So finally I settled on giving Bakblade a go. I was apprehensive about whether the blade would cut into my skin but in reality I had nothing to worry about. Within 10 minutes of the item being delivered I had already dry-shaved the hair off half of my back!
The blades are sharp but if you've got normal skin (i.e. not over-sensitive) you should be fine. You don't need to press really hard, let the blades do the work. Obviously they're not as sharp as a razor you'd use for your face, so you may have to swipe more than once on a given area. I found that quickly cleaning the blades after EVERY swipe (just removing the large hairs) really helps in terms of technique. The blades can be detached from the head, which allows for using in areas where the handle would make things difficult. But to be honest, the 3-blade combo works much better than a single blade in terms of removing hair.
One final tip - the blades are scraping your skin as you go, so your skin will be feeling a little rough afterwards. I used some aloe vera + tea tree oil on my skin to soothe it down.
Honestly i didn't think it was going to be this good, it was compact easy to use and high quality. The blades are very durable and will easily last you several months. there guard helps protect the skin from the blades however you still get a very close cut and I was very impressed. The fact the the arm is detachable makes it so much easier to use on areas that are easy to get to as you don't have to have to long extended arm out. The removable blades make it easier to replace and the two ended brush makes cleaning the blades a complete breeze. Its curvature design to the arm makes it very easy to get to hard to reach areas with ease. Overall highly recommended especially at the great price.
I've used the Back Shaver once on a dry back. I have a lot of hair but it is not very coarse. It's quite effective. It left me smooth and without any cuts. There was a mild rawness to be expected when not using a cream. The result was much better than any other improvised home made device I have tried to use. It's expensive for what it is and the packet says the blades are good for 6 uses. I'll try and use it for longer than than i.e. replace when it hurts. I assume the blades will last longer if I don't wet them and let them rust. I did see some cheaper sellers on ebay but I have a feeling they are copies and of inferior quality.
