Product works as described
I got it as a gift and I was very skeptical as I have tried every product under the sun but to no avail. I am truly ecstatic of how well this product worked on my back hair. What normally took my girlfriend 20 mins I can now do with ease in 5 minutes by myself. Thanks for a wonderful product. Great purchase
Fire the Product Designer. Wrong Blade(s) angle
I have used used Bakblade 1.0 and it worked like a charm. Then they decided to 'fix something that was not broken' and introduce a star trek design ( they forgot the function).So unable to purchase new blades for 1.0 I purchased 2.0. I tried to shave my back but ! had to go over & over same spot again & again. There is something wrong with this I said to my self. Why is it not shaving off the hair like 1.0 did? So I put the new unit on a table, blades facing down, and looked at the 'attack angle' of the blades, They were virtually flat to the t...able!. Then I took my face razor & did the same. Ah Ha! You try it and you will see that the 'attack angle' of a normal face razor blade for proper shaving is about 30 degrees. Bakblade 1.0 had that appx 30 degree 'attack angle' but 2.0 does not; its blades are virtually flat to the surface they are on. No wonder it's not working. So being a kind of 'Mr fix it' I put the part of the handle just above the hinge (toward the top of unit) under stove gas flame, moved the flame back and forth till the plastic softened and then gently bent the upper part so the blade would now present a proper 30 degree angle to the table - and my back. It works great now, Doesn't look look so beautifully curved but what the hell. Screw the handle.
Best there is, almost perfect
I have only used this once and the more l do, the more proficient l will become. The blade(s) are big. You could slaughter a pig with it. I egan just scratching my back with it and was surprised to see half the forest was gone. I did find due to the contours of my back i missed a few spots such as shoulder blades and high just under the neck, even going in sideways did not help but where not talking big patches more like the few blades of grass that pop up after mowing the lawn. My back is extremely hairy from waist to shoulder so pretty good. Finally it is a very close shave, yes i did snick myself in a few spots and being a dry shave it burns for a moment afterwards

Hair today ...Gone in 10 mins...No more welcome mat.
I saw a clip for the bakblade 2.0 on You Tube thinking it was just another 'as seen on tv' crap gadget.
Still a bit curious I went to their website, read reviews, watched 'how to use' videos and thought about buying one...but with postage from the US etc it all seemed too much 'for a bit of plastic'.
A week later or so, a Shaver Shop catalog arrived with the usual supermarket junk mail.
I've always liked the Shaver Shop and on the few occasions I have been into the Adelaide City store, the service has been great and the prices very keen...
