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.

I have a Braun Series 5 razor. I have had it for a LONG time. I want to explain what some people are complaining about concerning this replacement blade set not being as good as the original. The first time I replaced the blades on this about 2 or more years ago, YES, they sucked. I called Braun before ordering this NEW set (foil and blades) and they informed me that it is now back to being the same as the original that came with the razor. IT IS! I still have the original blade and foil set AND the REPLACEMENT set that basically SUCKED. This NEW one is EXACTLY the same as the one that came with the razor. I think they tried to lower the quality a couple of years ago and didn’t realize that people were going to complain and then went back to the original design. Anyway, I installed this NEW set and trust me, it shaves GREAT. I have a HEAVY beard. I usually use this to shave with first and then use a conventional razor and shaving cream to get a REALLY close shave. I have a 5 o’clock shadow at 4 o’clock. This new blade set gave me a REALLY nice shave after three days of not shaving. For me, that is like trying to shave strands of metal.

Good product, seems to be a genuine Braun replacement

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!?

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’.

Worked great!

This has worked perfectly for this old Beast of a razor. Makes it cut like brand new.

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

 on December 15, 2014

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.
