Braun replacement foil & cutter blocks help to maintain your shaver’s maximum performance. Braun recommends changing your shaver’s blades every 18 months as the cutting parts will gradually wear out over time, and your shave may become less close and comfortable. After replacing them you get back 100% of your shaver’s performance.

Product Overview

Braun Replacement Foil & Cutter
Braun electric shavers are designed and tested to last at least 6 years with proper maintenance1. Within 18 months, your Braun shaver will cut an average of 6,000,000 hairs–equivalent to shaving an entire soccer field. In accomplishing this substantial task, the cutting parts will gradually wear out and your shave may become less close and comfortable. Therefore, Braun recommends changing your shaver’s foil & cutter block every 18 months to maintain your shaver’s maximum performance. For a perfect shave every day.

With so many knock-offs on the market for everything, it is hard to trust many replacement parts purchased on any site, including Amazon. I read the reviews for a number of different options available on Amazon, some slightly cheaper, but many of the reviewers indicated that the product they purchased was made in Korea! I picked this item since it mentioned “made in Germany”. I received the item yesterday, and the print on the package does say “made in Germany”, the packaging, however, has information written in many different languages, so I am guessing this is not just for sale in US and made so they can use the same package internationally!?

Best Cutter Block & Foil I’ve used with my 8585 Razor (including when it was new)

This is the first time in a couple of years that I bought a cutter block & foil for my Braun 8585 Razor, and they definitely changed the design for the better. The foil is a more complex (usable) pattern and the center (whisker) cutters are larger and work better. But it’s the cutter block that’s undergone the most changes and which really help. Instead of the blades pointing up (which tends to dull them faster in any razor), they are now pointed to the sides…where each blade piece has to two ends. Which not only works better, but keeps the blades sharper (and hopefully longer). And it’s also the first cutter block I’ve purchased in quite a while that was so well balanced, that the noise level of my razor went down quite a bit. In the past, buying a new cutter block never really helped much, and so I only bought the combination when the foil failed. And generally I could hardly tell the diference with the new combo. But not this time. This time it was very noticeable better.

Happy to be shaving again

This is an OEM replacement Shaver Foil and Blades. Cleaned the Braun Head unit really good, inserted the new blade and foiled cover and it was like the unit was Brand NEW again. Price was excellent and delivery was a day late but they got it here on Sunday!!

I’ve had NO issues that others have had, it works perfectly for me on my Braun 8985, smooth no-snag shave like it should be.

I too had read many of the other reviews here that say how horrible this shaver replacement is, and I too was worried just like you probably are. I put off ordering one since I didn’t want a piece of junk, I wanted a real replacement. I haven’t replaced my foil and cutter in about 4 yrs (and they recommend doing it every 1.5yrs) and it was getting to where I really really needed to, even at the risk of getting what many here are calling a junk replacement. Well, since I couldn’t find any others, I ordered the “Series 5, 51S” for about $30. When it came I noticed the foil head had even-sized small holes throughout, whereas the last replacement I bought (~4 yrs ago) had more of a honeycomb look to the holes. ‘Oh boy’ I thought, ‘Maybe this will be a bad thing like so many others have said’.

Exact replacement for Braun 360 Complete shavers

I see bad reviews about this replacement foil here on Amazon and almost decided against buying it. The problem appears to be that this is actually the replacement foil and cutter block for the Braun 360 complete series shavers, specifically the 89** series. This series along with the Braun Activator has now been discontinued. I have the Braun 360 Complete 8985 shaver. If someone can recall the Braun 360 was a minor upgrade to the Braun Activator line of shavers. The upgrade was in the foil and the cutter block assembly only. According to Braun, the newer cutter block and foil were better at cutting than the previous Activator series cutter block. Also the newer cutter block fit both Braun 360 complete as well as Braun Activator shavers.

I’ve had a Series 5 for maybe 5 years but for the past few years I have always shaved like my dad taught me. Was on auto replenishment for cartridges, had a brush and Proraso shaving cream. I enjoyed shaving, it was an art but it was a process. Then kids happened.

Amazing improvement in shave performance and comfort

I have a Series 5 razor and this replacement foil/cutter fits perfectly. Having read some of the other reviews mentioning it didn’t fit their model I simply disassembled the one I have and compared the appearance against the stock photos; this worked well.

Finally! Back to expected quality!

I’ve been using my Braun 8995 for a number of years now. I purchased it initially because of the awesome, smooth shave that the Gillette-branded blades provided. After Braun switched to the new 5-Series branding the quality of the replacement heads declined quickly. I have extremely sensitive skin and a curly beard, which has become increasingly more so as I’ve gotten older. I used to be able to shave once a day, but over time I’ve had to reduce to twice a week to avoid skin irritation and ingrown hairs.
