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.

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. Let me tell you what, I should have replaced my foil and cutter a LONG time ago! HOLY CRAP it’s a night and day difference! I went from having discomfort and difficulty shaving to baby smooth skin pain-free. Not only that, but the shave time was cut in half, at least! I think that since the blades wear slowly over time I didn’t notice the degraded performance until I put brand new blades on. I will be replacing my blades much, much more frequently now. Purchase and be satisfied.

no more ouch

My original screen on my Braun shaver developed cracks that tore the heck out of my face, drew a small amount of blood and left a horrible rash. I thought it was just my skin being sensitive, but it was the screen. Bought this replacement screen and cutter, works like brand new, very smooth shave, didn’t know it was capable of. Lesson learned, replace screen and cutters often or pay the price.

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!

Great upgrade to Waterflex

I purchased this as a replacement head for my 4-month-old Braun Waterflex (WFS2). This replacement head is actually different than the head that ships with the Waterflex. The easiest way to tell the difference is to compare the teeth on the center lifting comb. One of the other major (though less noticeable) differences are the size of the holes in the foils; the 51B holes are larger than the original Waterflex head, making it easier to catch and cut hair. This head is visually identical to the head that ships standard with the Braun Series 5.

Not The Right One!!

I purchased the Braun Series 5 for my son here on Amazon so when it was time to buy the replacement foil and cutter I back. This foil & cutter was matched with the Braun Series 5 so I ordered it. Once it arrived you could easily see it wasn’t the right one. With more research I found that I needed the 52S not 51. Thank you Amazon for an easy return. His new replacement is working great so just look closely to know which one your shaver actually needs.
