Decent Razor

By Nick, Verified Reviewer

This blade did get the job done, but I had some thoughts:


  • Blades are affordable, even without the membership
  • Blade is wider
  • It's a very comfortable shave, very little friction, love the independent suspension


  • The depth is too shallow, so you really need to work to get a good shave
  • If you do work, to get depth, you WILL cut yourself
  • With mine, it did keep clogging up. Requires a bit of rinsing to get it ready to use again
  • Took a bit of experimenting to change blades out

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Great razor!

By Wayne, Easton, MA, Verified Reviewer

I got my new razor yesterday and used it right away.

I must say my first impression was that it was kind of lightweight.

I found that to be a total pleasure, and shaving with the Defender was very smooth and easy. The blades did not grab or pull, and it was very easy to clean. I highly recommend this razor above the five-bladed, much-advertised one that I had been using.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Instant Razor Burn

By Matt James, Arizona, Verified Reviewer

I received this razor in the mail yesterday and decided to try it out last night. After only three pulls across my face, I noticed immediate razor burn areas and my face felt like it had been sliced into tiny little wafers. I will be returning this horrible product for a refund and I suggest every man stay away from the Defender. It should be renamed "The Mauler". It is cheaply made and the blades are too thin (in depth) to cut actual facial hair.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Believe the ad

By Darryl, Boca Raton, FL , Verified Reviewer

I watched the ad and it made complete sense. It's not often when the claim matches the experience, and I must say I am very excited about this product now. I spend a fortune on brand new blades, as I often do not use them twice. Whether it is because my wife shaves her legs with them before I use them again, or I just like the concept of a "brand new" blade. However, due to the ability to clean this blade so thoroughly, I can see myself using each cartridge several times.

Happy Face.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Definitely worth trying out

By Jason, Chespeake, VA, Verified Reviewer

The Defender Razor popped up as an advertisement on my Facebook feed randomly one day. Instead of passing over it like I do with all the Dollar Shave Club ridiculousness. Their video was straightforward and the technology seemed worth trying. I'm Navy and absolutely despise shaving. No razor has ever given me a pain-free, knick-free shave but the Schick​ Hydro 5 has been my go to until now. After trying these for a week I've been able to go against the grain every day with only extremely minor irritation. I did notice more comfort with the sensitive blades vs the normal blades, I don't think it's a placebo. I think I'm sticking with these for a while, I just can't justify paying $18 dollars for 4 cartridges anymore and these give me a top notch shave.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great razor

By Andy, Virginia, Verified Reviewer

I currently have about 7 razors. From a straight edge to a 7 blade razor. I started shaving my head in the last year and have been looking for the best possible razor. I will say i love the Defender razor. At the base of my skull there is a dip. I'm pretty sure everyone has it but razors struggle to shave there which is a problem for me. I want my head to be perfectly smooth and it was taking me about a half hour or more to get my head as smooth as i want. First time trying the defender razor i was amazed. Every dip, every bump was shaved perfectly. I finished shaving my head in about 10 minutes with the Defender Razor. This is a great razor and not a scam.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
