Not a good shaver; cut is only OK - blades dull very quickly
I purchased these after reading a couple of good reviews on Product Review.
I would dispute those good reviews having found the blades only last a couple of shaves with accuracy, and even this varies from refill to refill?
I was originally using a similar system from Woolworths called Edge and was truly satisfied with them - but could not find them on shelves for a while; - they ARE back now and I'll go back too!
Pleased to see that Aldi's Prince system seems to be discontinued, I certainly would NOT buy them again! I guess there's a good reason for Aldi dropping or substituting them?
12 months shaving off one blade..Still going. started using 22/12/2018
I first used the blade on 22/12/2018 and still using the same blade today 26/12/2019 over 12 months later.
Blade still smooth and no knicks. Still have 3 new ones in the pack.
Could be better- Need to improve
I am regular user of this shaving unit.Sharpness of blades is excellent.....but NEED TO IMPROVE THE GRIP BETWEEN THE CARTRIDGE AND THE HANDLE. It is terrible.
During my shave , I drop this cartridge few times from the handle. Specially in winter while we use hot water to dip this cartridge to clean the devise. Grip between cartridge and the handle which holds the cartridge is poor and needs to be improved.
Being a admirer of this product, I felt that I must write this on review.
Please give attention to my request and put New print on your product....."BETTER AND STRONGER GRIP"
The new blades are no good.
I have used the Prince 6 blade system for several years. Recently I have been cutting myself and or removing levels of skin leaving the face stinging in areas. I compared the old blades to the new blades, visually, except for the colours (old silver, new black) there does not appear to be any difference. However the quality of the new batch is inferior and dangerous, I won't be using them in the future.
The best multiblade cartridge
Pro: Price is half Gillette Fusion, Excellent for both a quick shave or a fussy close shave. Very long cartridge life. Comfortable shaver handle.
Con: Some people don't like shopping at Aldi. Aldi could discontinue this without notice. No visible wear indicator
The Prince Calibre 6 beats the Fusion at its own game. The reason (other than marketing) that the Fusion has five blades is so a quick single-pass shave could do a good enough job. The Prince does much better than good enough at a single pass and needs very little repeat shaving f...or a perfectly close shave. I've used this cartridge for about a year and nicked myself only two or three times but NEVER deep enough to draw blood. I've used Mach 3s since they came out years ago and while they also nick only rarely when they do it's a deep cut. Unlike the Mach 3 the Prince Calibre 6 doesn't clog (I use aerosol gel so other foams/oils/soaps might differ) and I can do at least 30 full shaves before the cartridge feels even a little blunt. Unlike other big-brand cartridges there is no indication of when to change the cartridge (Gillette has a coloured line on the lubricating strip). Like the Fusion the Calibre 6 also has a single trimmer blade on the edge but I've never used that on either the Fusion or the Calibre 6.
Questions & Answers
Bought the Calibre 6 "motion sphere" shaver and blades used it for the first time and felt like it wanted to "rip my skin off my face" has anyone experienced this? Cannot use if future will have to throw in the bin as I did not keep the receipt.
Hi Mark, I too found they dragged on my face. I'd advise try another blade from the pack, and if possible use the lot up - then switch to the Woolworths Edge brand (not too bad) or try the Coles brand, which I have not yet tried?
