A men’s back shaver is a must-have grooming product if you prefer not to sport the Silver-Back gorilla look.
Just like nose and ear hair, the hair on your back is one place you can do without it, plus it seems to grow more as you get older!
No one wants to see your back hair, and now there’s no excuse for not removing it.
Luckily there are some decent products on the market that do the job of removing back hair a cinch.
I’ve not got a particularly hairy back, but it’s starting to become a lot more noticeable, and I need to give it a wee trim every few weeks.
I used to use my Bodygroom shaver for this job, and to a point, it does the job reasonably well.
However, purely for shaving my back, I’ve since bought the BaKblade 2.0 Plus, and boy is it a step-up in simplicity and time-saving.
Here’s my review of the Bakblade 2.0 Plus, and why I prefer it over similar models.
Note: There is also the Bakblade 2.0 Plus Elite which has a few extras that you might like.
In This Guide..
I love products that are dead easy to use, have very few working parts, and don’t need electricity or batteries.
Just like my Groom Mate Nose hair trimmer, the Bakblade 2.0 Plus back shaver, ticks all these boxes!
As you would expect it has a long (18 inches) ergonomic, foldable handle, so you can reach those tricky areas of your back.
The Bakblade 2.0 Plus Elite has a rubber grip to stop it from slipping out of your hand.
Two or Three Blade Cutting System
I’m not sure whether having 2 or 3 blades over just the one makes much difference to someone like me who doesn’t have a ‘shag-pile carpet’ for a back.
If you do have such a feature, then you’ll certainly benefit from the extra blades, especially if your hair is coarse. If so, you definitely want to get the Bakblade 2.0 Plus Elite with its extra cutting blade.
Now you might be thinking these blades are gunna give you a rash, going in dry! You’ll be wrong my friend.. these bad boys have a patented Dryglide technology that prevents this.
Wet or dry, they remove your back hair very easily and without irritation.
If you do have sensitive skin, then you can use the brush/exfoliator that comes with the Elite version. To be honest, I can’t see that being used much.
As you would expect, the blades will need replacing after a while. The blade cartridge easily slides out and you swap the cartridge with a new one.
You’re probably going to replace your blades every 5 or 6 shaves. Obviously, this will depend on how thick and coarse your hair is.
Not much is made of this feature, but I think it’s really useful to be able to remove the head and use it like a hand brush.
That way you can shave your chest and arm hair much easier.
Yep, just like any solid product, it comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee. Not only that, the manufacturer gives you a lifetime warranty. My type of warranty!
- Easy of use
- Speed – after the initial shave, it will only take a minute or 2 to keep on top of
- Detachable head
- Great warranty
- The nice rubber handle should be included on both models
- Replacement blades a little pricey (although you do get 6 blades in a pack)
Tens of thousands of positive reviews can’t be wrong!
If you want to read what people are saying about the Bakblade 2.0 Plus, head over to Amazon.
If you’ve got a hairy back and would prefer not to have one, AND you want a product that will shave your back in double quick time without irritating your skin… get this goddam shaver!
It does the job. Thousands of satisfied Amazon customers also agree. Enough said.
