These replacement foils/cutting blocks suck!
Something is terribly wrong with these replacement foil/cutter blocks! The original foil/cutter block that came with my new shaver lasted over 18 months. I’ve now replaced the foil/cutter blocks 5 times. They only last about 3 months before the cutter block becomes dull and won’t shave. The foils are unworn with no damaged. This last one that I replaced yesterday is so dull, right out the package, that it’s pulling hairs from my beard and won’t shave. Here are the installation dates of the last 4 foil/cutter blocks: 02-02-19, 10-28-18, 07-31-18, and 04-18-18.

Another Lost Customer
I wanted to ask for a new electric shaver this holiday season, and was looking forward to improved quality in a newer Series 7. My legacy Series 5 used to work wonders and blades would last well over 12 months. However, after recently replacing multiple sets of these blades with an average of about 5 weeks of use on each set, I cannot even ask for a new Braun shaver as a gift (a free item) in good conscience knowing that I would be supporting such poor business practices. This company had many chances to rectify the quality control issues they are currently experiencing. The issues are a result of low quality materials in the new parts which degrade very quickly after initial use.
