I shave every other day both my face and my head. It is a breeze to shave with the Defender. Easy motion with standard blades. The gliding of the razor is a pleasure. Rinsing had been a problem with other blades I've used over the years. Both clogging and getting dull too quickly has been a problem that is now solved. My beard is not a heavy one so the blades used prior would go over the hair. The flexibility of the Defender makes shaving a pleasure (almost).
Even when I skip a few days, I don't encounter problems. I heartedly recommend these blades to any man that shaves.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
