The recent manscaping trends have made mowing the hair at the back an obvious thing, like your beard.
Well, there isn’t anything wrong with being hairy. But a bear-like back will get you a lot of weird attention especially if you try to flaunt it in public.
Unfortunately, shaving the back has always been a dreaded process given all the razor burns, nicks, itchiness, and cuts that a bad weapon causes.
The chances are that you are reading this bro shaver review to find out whether it is the solution to those maladies that wreck havoc on your back.
Well, I wouldn’t actually call it the ultimate caveman’s back shaver. However, I feel that this tool has several cool improvements over other shavers out there.
Let’s get straight to the details!
Table of Contents
Of course, this is a back shaver. The thing, however, is that this is not your ordinary back-hair removing tool.
As you’ll find out in the specs and performance sections, the Bro shaver has been ergonomically engineered to make this process a little bit easier and less painful.
It has a long handle, the longest on the market so far, and a wide head for more coverage.
Its head also features the New Comfy Cloud technology.
Who is the Bro Shaver for?
- Anyone who experiences problems reaching those hard-to-reach areas with a short handle back shaver
- People with sensitive skin
- Anyone looking for a close shave of their long hair
- If you are sick of shavers that use pricey proprietary replacement blades
Features: What will you like about the Bro shaver back hair shaver?
An impressively long handle!
In my opinion, the best part about the bro shaver is its extremely long handle. At 20 inches, tip to tip, this is hands down, the longest back shaver that I have reviewed so far.
Let’s face it. What causes the dreaded razor cuts, nicks, and itchiness?
You could say the placement of the blades on the head, which is partly true. But a short handle also has a hand in this.
It’s somewhat embarrassing to ask your partner or roommate to shave your hairy back, especially on a daily basis.
But there are those hard-to-pick areas, for instance, at the middle of the back that a short shaver won’t reach.
If you are dealing with a short-handle shaver, it’s likely that you’ll always have to push slightly harder to get a better reach. As you probably know, this is one easy way to cut up back.
There’s more about the handle!
Let’s compare Bro to other back shavers on the market and see how they compete lengthwise.
|Back Shaver Name

|17.8 x 6 x 4.2
|BaKblade 1.0 (Editor’s Choice)

Has a nice grip
No one wants to fiddle with an ill-designed handle while gliding 3 sharp razor blades across their back. That’s why Bro’s ergonomically designed handle requires a special mention here.
This is more like a knife handle grip. It’s easy to hold in your hands and offers a comfortable grip that you won’t have to adjust unnecessarily.
It has a good curve too!
This handle also has a really nice curve to it. This means that you’ll not need to press it so hard onto your skin.
I imagine this might be good news for guys with molds and acne on their backs. The fact that you only need to move it lightly on your skin highly minimizes the chances of cutting yourself up.
What about the blades, are they replaceable?
Ever wondered why blades dull so fast? Some people claim that the manufacturers want to sell you more. Others blame it on the high humidity conditions in the bathroom.
Whatever the reason, all blades require being replaced after some time.
The major problem, however, comes when you can’t replace the blades with any other brand of your choice (think about affordability, availability, and quality here).
In fact, some brands are known to hike the price of the replacement blades since… well, you can’t get them anywhere else.
But that’s where the Bro shaver edges out the competition.
This back shaver comes with a pack of 15 stainless steel double edge blades.
The head takes 3 blades at a go. When they go dull, you could either flip them over or swap them with a new pair altogether.
If you are like me and want value for every cent, then flipping them over seems like a good deal. Doing this should get you up to 10 fresh blade changes.
These 15 blades might, therefore, take you a very long time, of course, depending on how often you shave.
But what’s interesting is that you can replace them with whichever brand that you want.
In this case, I would highly recommend you to check out the Astra Superior Platinum if you want cheap but sharp blades.
If you don’t mind paying a little bit more for quality, Feather blades are all the rage at the moment.
Does it give you a close shave?
The bro shaver head features, what the manufacturer calls, New Comfy Cloud Technology. This is a patent-pending system that thwarts all razor burns, nicks, and cuts, especially with dry shaving.
The system has also been designed in a way that minimizes irritation.
This feature coupled with the innovatively curved handle suggests that everyone including those who have sensitive skin might get outrageously close shaves without the risk of cuts.
The blades are super easy to swap or flip
Sure, you don’t require any tool for this. These bro shaver blades are held in the head by bolts that you easily unscrew with your hands.
I bet replacing them won’t take you more than a minute.
Worth pointing out is that the bolts are made of stainless steel and nickel. So, it’s very unlikely that they will rust.
Dry or Wet shaves- it’s all up to you
David Bank, a Dermatologist in Mount Kisco, NY, highly recommends shaving in the shower. But what happens when you are in a hurry and don’t want to apply shaving cream on your back?
Just shave it dry!
What you might like is that the bro shaver blades cover a very large part with a single glide.
Again, as most users report, this back shaver’s head design works like a charm in preventing hair clogs. This means that shaving your back won’t be taking you the whole day.
- Has a very long curved handle. You can reach most parts of your back with ease
- Wide cutting area and excellent blade angle might give you a really close shave
- The best part: You can replace the bro shaver blades with any other brand of your choice
- It allows wet and dry shaves
- Does not come with a sheath or anything to cover the blades with. So, you have to remove them after each shave especially if you have kids around.
- The handle might be uncomfortable for some users. It has some sharp edges, and one of the sides is unrefined.
- Although it has a hole for hanging, it would have been even better if it folds into 2 for compact storage.
Final Verdict on the Bro Shaver Review
Its length alone is enough reason for anyone to fall for it. This shaver is actually like an extension of your arm.
So, shaving those difficult-to-reach areas might not be a problem.
The best part, however, is that you can use your favorite double edge blades, No refill rip-off!
Make the rather challenging process of shaving your back easy by adding the Bro shaver to your grooming accessories.
After all, it is risk-free. It comes with a 60-day satisfaction or money-back guarantee and a 1-year warranty.
