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.

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)

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.

Great Shave Once Again

Fits great, and cuts close. Should’ve bought it sooner. After 4yrs of almost daily use the blades became so dull I’d have to press hard for ten minutes back and forth multiple times to get a shave.. Mind you, new it’d cut me if I pressed hard.. it shaved so close

Not as good as the old cutter

I too was surprised when I replaced my original cutter/foil set with these. They didn’t cut well, and they tugged on my stubble. Not at all the clean, fast shave I got with my original blades. That’s why I switched to Braun from Norelco.

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’.

Made my old shaver like new

I love my Braun 8985 shaver, which is getting a little long in the tooth but still gives me an amazing shave. Like any blades, mine became dull after years of daily use, though they still gave me a good shave. By replacing them with this new blade and foil, my shaver cuts like it’s new again without having to spend upwards of $150 or more for a new one. And have you seen the price of blades these days? I’ll stick with my electric. Even if I were given a new shaver (hint, family!), I’d still keep this one for travel and leave my new one at home. Very happy it’s good as new!

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.
