Like so many things these days, cheap cost equals cheap quality. Rick from Pawn Stars should be embarrassed to endorse this since, as a pawn shop guru, he would never buy anything from anyone that he thought would fall apart because it was cheap crap. Many have mentioned problems with the mechanism that opens and closes the doors.
My shaver froze up the first time and the turn knob at the bottom of the handle just wouldn't budge! I had to use pliers and that seemed okay for a while and then it froze up again a few months later. This time the pliers snapped something when I tried to get the knob to turn and the entire mechanism just fell apart in my hands. Seriously? This was after about a year of use. My dad used one of these things when I was a kid back in the 60's and I know his lasted for years. Junk is junk and this is, unfortunately, junk.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
