Bakblade vs Bro Shaver Which Is Better?

Which one is the king of the back shavers? And why? In this head to head showdown I will thoroughly explain positives and the negatives of each and give my take on which one is the clear winner.

So let’s get to it.

The Contenders

Currently at the time of writing this the current model of the Bakblade and The Bro Shaver are

This is important as both back shavers are gone through upgrades over the years as different models have been released. So, if you are reading or watching an older video reviewing these two consider it old news and no longer relevant.

How to tell if a website hasn’t really used a back shaver no unique pictures a dead give away. You can read more here Why You Should Trust My Reviews On Back Shavers?

Who Has The Better Quality Parts, Design, & Build?

Hands down Bakblade 2.0 Elite Pro in all matters have better parts and better materials. Easily without question the clear and concise winner here.

There are several different kinds of plastic on the handle as well as the shaving head. This incorporates different textures and contours for gripping as well. On top of that the handle for Bakblade folds in half for storage and travel, it is more adaptable.

The Bro Shaver 2.2 is just cheaper in build quality and design. You can see this right off the bat in their underside of the handle. It not that comfortable in the hand either and this comes off as cheap. As compared to the Bakblade there are no sharp edges and it has one of the most comfortable handles.

What Shaver Won’t Cut You?

Bakblade wins this category too. I have never been cut using any of the Bakblade models over the years, ever! It just doesn’t happen. This is due to getting the very precise angle of the razor blade, the plastic teeth, and the relationship to the handle.

In older models of Bro Shaver, there were inconsistencies with how the plastic teeth covered the space between two razor blades. This has been addressed in the 2.2, as the razors have been reduced to two razors and a larger tooth has been added where the two razors meet. Thus eliminating cuts due to this.

Bro Shaver gives you the option of choosing the razor blades you can use though. To some people, this might be a key factor, as you save money, as well as determine the type of cut the razor blade has. There are mild, sharp, really sharp safety razor blades you buy and use in the Bro Shaver depending on your level of back hair and experience.

The Most Important – Which One Shaves Back Hair The Best

Once again the nod goes to Bakblade.

The comes down once again to the design, the design of the shaving head. The angle of the three shaving cartridges is spot on and shave hair effortlessly leaving smooth paths of skin. Not only the angle but also the three-row of shaving cartridges.

In essence, it comes down to three-row of blades (Bakblade) compared to one row of blades (Bro Shaver). Which one do you think would shave better, yep, the three-row of blades. It just shaves better and in less time too.

Which Shaver Is Cheaper In The Long Run?

The Bro Shaver takes this round, as it cheaper two-fold over the Bakblade. Cheaper in the fact that you can buy much cheaper safety razors over the more expensive shaving cartridges and also having to only one set of razor compared to three sets of cartridges.

Overall Winner

It’s quite clear Bakblade 2.0 Elite Plus takes the championship belt. This all stems from the owner pushing his product to make it become better with each upgrade and never being settled with good enough. Over the years of reviewing Bakblade products, I clearly see this effort.

  1. Looking at your side-by-side comparison, I can certainly see why the Bakblade beat out the Bro Shaver! Three inexpensive blades are certainly better than a single, more expensive cartridge. I sure appreciate that you used both shavers before you reviewed them. I need something for my husband and this article came at exactly the right time! Are these the only two similar products on the market?

    1. As stated, both are great shavers and both are at the very top of my ranked best back shavers currently available. I only write about back shavers I have used, a lot of websites that review back shavers never even have touched one. 

      There are actually a lot of similar products on the market but a lot of them are inferior to these two. After all these rank the highest. You can buy a cheaper model for $10.00 or $20.00 cheaper but it will perform a lot less than these two. Hope this helps. Let me know what the husband thinks when he gets his back shaver.
