A great men’s grooming product!
“Blade Buddy will get you in tip-top shape for your next date.”
“If you can get a great shave from the same razor for several months, then by spending $20 on the Blade Buddy, it will pay for itself and then some rather quickly.”

I must say I’m really pleased (even impressed) with the Blade Buddy. I’ve been burned on other products I’ve ordered online promising to do this or that… but your product actually does what it says. I use the expensive blades and I was going through them way too fast. Your product actually makes it feel like I’m using a new blade each time I use the Blade Buddy and it has really slowed down the need to change the blade out. Heck, I paid for the Blade Buddy in just a couple of weeks use. Very impressed. 🙂
I bought your product for my boyfriend and he LOVES it! Since then he has purchased 2 more as gifts.
I just want to thank you guys for making such an awesome product! I was sooo tired of paying all this money for new blades for my Schick razor. Goodbye spending hundreds of dollars on new blades. Hello saving money!
I simply want to thank you for this marvelous invention. I began using the Blade Buddy on January 31st. Since then I am on only my third mach3 blade. This would have meant approximately 27 blades the old way. The shave I get is always great. I can’t thank you enough for this incredible money-saving efficient tool. I wish you great success.
WOW. My razor blade is still sharp and going strong 3 weeks later. Your Blade Buddy really works. This shaving pad will be paid for in 2.5 months. Thanks very much for your directions and great communication.
I looooove my Blade Buddy. My Gillette twin blade used to last me one week. At the end of this month, my current razor will have been used for TWO months and is still going strong. I like that it’s quick and easy to clean, and also the rubber feet at the bottom keep it from sliding around when using it. It’s a truly great product. I’m thinking of buying a second one as a back up, just in case.
The Blade Buddy works really well. I’ve been using the same blade over and over and it feels good knowing that I’m getting more life out of my very expensive blades. Thanks for making a great product that saves me money!
In May I bought a Blade Buddy about the same time I got my Gillette Pro Glide razor. Now it’s mid September and the Gillette Pro Glide is still shaving great after 4 months. I can see why the Blade Buddy can’t be found in stores. It destroys the market for new razor blades in a very big way. The Blade Buddy brings my monthly Pro Glide blade cost down to 50¢ a month.
At first I wasn’t sure how a silicone pad would be able to sharpen a razor blade but after going through several packs of disposable razors per month, I realized that I needed to try something new. So far, I’ve been using the Blade Buddy for 5 months now and I’m still able to use my same razor. To be honest, I didn’t think it would work but it has. I haven’t had to buy another razor since.
I am a man who shaves my face and head. I am bald and I go through a lot of razor blades. Since shaving my head makes my razor dull all the more quicker, I have to go through many a blade. Using the Blade Buddy saves me a lot of money in the long run since I don’t have to keep buying razor blades in bulk anymore. Blade buddy is a much recommended product. Give it a try folks.
I was looking into buying the Blade Buddy but, based on negative reviews, I didn’t. A few months later I was given one as a gift. I used Blade Buddy not really expecting it to work. But it works so well that I can’t even comprehend how someone could leave negative feedback. I rarely leave feedback but had to on this one. I wouldn’t doubt that Gillette has a hand in the negative feedback here. Here are my stats: I kept up with all my shaves on my bathroom mirror with an erasable marker: 2 Months, 9 Full Shaves, 13 Small clean-up shaves (Around my neck & back of neck). Blade still sharp. I would 100% recommend Blade Buddy!
Now my 3 Reasons Gillette Doesn’t Want You To Buy Blade Buddy:
1. Cuts their profits in half
2. Cuts their profits in half
3. Cuts their profits in half
I admit, I was skeptical when I first saw this advertised. Seemed like a gimmick. I bought this around Father’s Day. I followed the instructions to the letter, starting with a new razor and using the Blade Buddy daily before each shave. Its now Aug 7 and the blade still shaves like new. At the 30 day mark, I compared it to a new blade, shaving alternate strokes while switching between the blade buddy maintained blade and a new identical blade and could not tell any noticeable difference. That to me was the proof. Thirty days of shaving (about 25 shaves) and I could still get just as comfortable a shave as I did with the new blade. Amazing.
UPDATE: About one year later: Over the last year, I have used 3 disposable blades using the blade buddy, so I have to continue to say that it is working well. I switched in October and again in January.
I have been using the same Gillette Fusion blade since I started using the Blade Buddy. It will easily pay for itself in a few months. It is now over 3 months and I still use the same disposable blade. Product has already paid for itself. The blade simply shows no evidence of wear at all. Remarkable product!!
I ordered this product after being tired of getting 1 or 2 shaves out of my disposable razors, I have very coarse facial hair so they become dull rather quickly. Using this product made the blade sharper then it was when it was brand new, and provided the closest shave I’ve ever had from a disposable razor. My mom even used it on her razor that was 6 months old and she said it was almost like a brand new razor. I love this product, and anyone who is tired of spending $250+ a year on disposable razors, should look into getting this item. It’s worth more then the $20.00 they are charging for it. Great product! I have to admit I was skeptical, but for me, the blade buddy works just fine… it’s August and I’m still using the same blade from June! I use the blade buddy every time I use the razor…maybe for those with bad results could try that?
I use this after every shave to try to extend my blade usage. So far, so good. I have made one last 2 weeks at which I wanted to just make good shaves for a weeks length. You can probably go longer on one but as far as a quick shave goes 2 weeks is long enough for me.
I got me this Blade Buddy to help offset the cost of buying new razor refills and this thing really does work. It is unbelievable. This thing is goings to save me hundreds of dollars!
Blade Buddy does everything it claims. I have had over 20 shaves with the same blade and still going strong.
This product really works. It has been in use for three months. After three months, my same razor blade is running just fine. My thoughts were that this was bull when I got it, but the constant loss of razor blades in my Gillette Mach 3 or 5 blade, was very expensive and frustrating. But then, it works and now my razor is happy. PS internet know-how suggests doing the same thing with jean material or leather like the back of a belt. Well, that works as well, just not as good as this. My habit is not to do any reviews, but on this one it was so impressive, one had to be done.
I’ve saw the Blade Buddy in a Sky Mall mag and decided to purchase it. Since using it for the past three weeks it keeps a blade that was previously dull sharp. For the next six months I plan on using the same blade thanks to my newest friend the Blade Buddy!
I have to say I was skeptical about this product but to date have been pleased with how it works. I usually only get about 4 shaves from a blade (Gillette Mach 3) but using the Blade Buddy, I am at a dozen shaves and counting. At this rate it will pay for itself very quickly.
I saw this on Yahoo about how it could really affect razor sales and I really see how! Now I do not change blades because they are dull I just change then because sometimes I have to shave in the field without a clean face and the blades get dirty. Otherwise I have gone 2+ months without changing the blade. If not for the field conditions I seriously do not see the need to change the blade for 4+ months. I have thick facial hair and must shave daily, even twice a day to keep Army standard on a 22+ hour day.
I shave my face and head daily, so I appreciate a sharp blade. I use the 5 blade Gillette Fusion so blades aren’t exactly cheap. I started using the Blade Buddy immediately. I followed the directions and began with a fresh blade (note: I tried “restoring” a used blade with BB and it does not work). I have been impressed from day 1 with how effective and easy this item is. I would say I run my blade across the Blade Buddy about every 7 days or so and it has significantly improved the sharpness of my blades. I have generally made a habit of using blades for 4 weeks, when possible. With the Blade Buddy, I have easily gone 6-8 weeks before replacing the blade. I have no doubt I could get further, I just haven’t made a point of trying. For me, being able to go an entire year on 6-9 blades is perfect. My only regret, is I wish I had purchased one for my wife at the $19.95 price. Regardless, I am buying one for her today as she has now switched to the same brand razor as I use. Buddy Blade is a great product that performs as advertised.
It really works! I bought three more for family members and one for my RV. I use the Gillette 5 blade and I go 5 to 6 months with blade. Must use it after your very first shave. Won’t sharpen already used blades.
I bought the Blade Buddy on a buy one/get one deal. Kept one for myself and gave the other to my sister. I’ve been so impressed with it, I’ve already bought a third as a gift. If you follow the instructions and use it before every shave, you get so much more life out of your cartridges. Definitely recommend it.
I use Blade Buddy every day. One blade has lasted 3 months.
The technology used for even cheap razors is pretty amazing. The blades created actually hold an edge for a long time. The thin blades are bent or curled each time you pull the razor across a surface. This device allows you to straighten the edge of the blade. It is the same thing that is accomplished when you move a knife edge on a straightening steel (as with cutlery in the kitchen). I just discarded a blade cartridge that I have been using for 7 months. Not only is there cost savings but I also like the fact that I am not discarding as many cartridges into the waste stream. You may have good luck using other surfaces to align a blade, however, this device works perfectly and is pretty inexpensive for what you can save on blade purchases.
I had a great time with this product. I feel like the razor does not go dull. It remains sharp enough for a good shave. I recommend this product for people trying to save money.
It’s my second purchase of a Blade Buddy…it is for my RV. On November 6, I changed the blade I had put in my razor in early July. I shave daily.
I bought this item for my boyfriend last Christmas and he raved about how great it was! So now were purchasing more for gifts! We love the Blade Buddy.
At first I wasn’t sure how a silicone pad would be able to sharpen a razor blade but after going through several packs of disposable razors per month, I realized that I needed to try something new. So far, I’ve been using the Blade Buddy for 5 months now and I’m still able to use my same razor. To be honest, I didn’t think it would work but it has. I haven’t had to buy another razor since, which is important for a female because you always want smooth skin, as you never know what will come up. The fact that you have to use soap or shaving cream with it also makes it a cleaning tool. It cleans and sharpens my razor at the same time.
The Blade Buddy makes shaving a true joy, pleasure to the face and your wallet.
I shave alternate days. As indicated, this will maintain your razor blade quality to the time you start using Blade Buddy. What I mean to say is, if you want to keep your razor shaving like new, use the Blade Buddy right from the time you use your razor for the first time. If you have used your razor several times before and your blade has become dull, do not expect blade buddy to work miracles on it and turn it into shaving like new.
I have been using the same razor for close to two months now and it feels just like new. I pass the razor about thirty times on the Blade Buddy surface as indicated in the back cover of the packaging and it has maintained my razor really well. Just apply a thin line of shaving cream at the bottom of blade buddy surface and slide your razor in a upward direction on it’s surface. Do this at a good pace (you will know once you get a hang of it). The more times you pass over the blade buddy between uses, the better your razor will maintain its sharpness. I definitely feel lot less tug and pull after I started using Blade Buddy. You will realize that the quality of the shave is as similar to that of using a new razor.
Just follow the instructions on the rear inside face of the package and you will be set. The product itself has a rubbery blue material that is about 3/8″ thick with almost microscopic ridges on it in a criss-cross fashion. This sits in a black surrounding well-built plastic case which on the bottom side has rubber pads (one at the top end and one at the bottom end) to grip on the countertop you place this whole assembly on. The Blue Rubber part comes right off when you tilt the assembly, but will stay in position when sliding your razor…no problems there. After using it, just rinse it off with water and dry it with a cloth and put it away until you need the next time. Hope my review helps.
Love it! Bought two and keep one at home, one in the camper.
My husband and son think it’s great!
My husband took it with him to his 2 week annual army training. I was hopeful he would try it out, as he always goes through a couple blades there…and here we are later…he is STILL using the same razor blade! Is $20 towards a Blade Buddy worth it? I say yes!
I ordered this product after being tired of getting 1 or 2 shaves out of my disposable razors, I have very coarse facial hair so they become dull rather quickly. Using this product provided the closest shave I’ve ever had from a disposable razor. I love this product, and anyone who is tired of spending $250+ a year on disposable razors, should look into getting it. It’s worth more then they are charging for it. Great product!
It’s working great.
Works great and use it every day!
The Blade Buddy will help you to go through a lot less razor blades, and at the cost of just $19.99, I think it’s really quite a bargain! I would highly recommend purchasing Blade Buddy if you find yourself going through razor blades like nobody’s business like I used to.
I just want to thank you guys for making such an awesome product!!! I’m a young woman in my 20’s and got your deal on livingsocial as I was soo tired of paying all this money for new blades for my Schick razor. I gotta admit – I was a BAD girl. I wanted to test out your blade buddy the moment I got it and I took my old dull razor blade (it was either that or a brand new blade) and I followed the instructions to a T. OMG!!! My razor blade was like brand new all over again!!!! My legs are soooo silky smooth and soft and it is OVER 24 hours since I shaved them. That has NEVER happened before – even with a brand new blade right out of the box!!! I cant thank you enough!!! Your product is AWESOME!!!! GOOD BYE SPENDING HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS ON NEW BLADES!!! HELLOOO SAVING MONEY!!!
My Blade Buddy is outstanding! I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, and I can definitely feel the difference. Very simple and very effective. Couldn’t be happier. Cheers!
Blade buddy is working great so far! I was replacing blades about every week and a half before, now it’s been over a month and I’m still using the same blade. Awesome product! It’s already made up for the price in blades! Thanks!
My husband is enjoying his new blade buddy. It is really working and my husband is talking of the blade buddy to all the men that are working with him. He really appreciates your product.
I have not bought any shaver since I got the Blade Buddy. It really is a big help, saved me a lot.
It works great! I will recommend it to everyone I know.
One of the best things I have ever bought. I have been mentioning it to a lot of guys I know and gave one of my two away. I am sure you have heard of The Art of Shaving. Would be a great item for them to carry though you may have to make it a bit fancier and more expensive.
Blade buddy works great. I’m still using the same razor for 5 weeks now. I think I can get 1 more weeks out of it. My face is smoother and less irritated.
Enjoying them greatly. Fabulous product.
This product works very well and still using the same blade since I received Blade Buddy. The bad reviews are definitely people who didn’t read the instructions. Hoping to get 3 months out of my blade vs 3 weeks. Spreading the word!
I just want to tell you that Blade Buddy is one of the best “inventions” I have seen in a long time. It works great, even on blades that have been used a lot already. I’m betting that it will keep new blades super sharp for a year!
It works great. I have never been able to use a blade more than 4 days, I have used the same blade for 15 days.
It’s awesome. My dad and I both love it.
Works GREAT!!! Can’t believe how long one blade lasts…
Working great so far. Same Fusion blade for 4 weeks now! Very good shaves without hacking my face up (I have very sensitive skin).
I bought 2 more for my brother in laws! I should be a spokesman.
I am 6 weeks in using a Schick Hydro 3 that never lasted more than 2-3 weeks! Just starting to notice a difference in quality in the shave but could probably squeeze out some more time. Your product is impressive! I am trying to convince friends to try it (they kinda don’t believe me)!
Best purchase I ever made!
The Blade Buddy for sure has saved me lots of blades and it’s working great.
It has been working out great!! It’s so amazing and genius! What a wonderful money saver and fresh shave! Thank you!
Love it! I am encouraging all my family to buy them. Good job!
It’s awesome my man.
Is $20 towards a Blade Buddy worth it? I say yes! The product itself works well and so do the numbers. After using the Blade Buddy and the same disposable razor blade for over a month, I’m pleased to give the Blade Buddy a positive review!
My husband is very pleased with it.
My husband and father-in-law loves Blade Buddy. They have not changed razors since using Buddy. Thanks so much for making a product that actually works.
I started using my Blade Buddy on or about June 24th. I just changed blades this morning. I was getting just 5 shaves out of my really expensive blades. So I guess I’ve cut my cost by 75%!
The Blade Buddy is working great. I’ve been using the same blade since I got your product. I’m extremely happy with the Blade Buddy. Thanks for your follow up.
Wish I had heard of this years and hundreds of dollars ago!! I have very sensitive skin. I normally have to change my blades after only four or five uses and I can only shave every 2-3 days, despite working in a medical clinic. I’ve been sharpening just one blade every time I use it for the past two months. So far, this Blade Buddy has done exactly as advertised. And again, only one blade has been used. It has already paid for itself. I would have bought four more packs of Gillette Fusion razors in the same amount of time I’ve been using this – a savings of roughly $34 in only two months ($14 x 4 packs Fusion razors – $20 for the Blade Buddy). Don’t go cheap and buy an off-brand… buy this razor sharpener. It’s fantastic.
I am bald and I go through a lot of razor blades. Since shaving my head makes my razor dull all the more quicker, I have to go through many a blade. But with Blade Buddy I can shave my face and head and then use Blade Buddy to make my razor about 80% sharp again for more great shaves. Using Blade Buddy saves me much money in the wallet in the long run. I don’t have to keep buying razor blades in mass anymore. Blade Buddy is a much recommended product. Give it a try folks.
It’s one of those things you say – what the hell, I’ll try it – not really expecting results. I would and have promoted the product to my friends. It’s already paid for itself, and I expect the blade companies to buy you out soon. 100% satisfied. Thank you!
Looking at your website and watching the video one would not believe that this product actually delivers what it promises. Which is unusual in this day and age. Blade Buddy is a great product. I actually talked my son-in-law into getting one and he just loves it. Especially when his wife uses his razor, there’s no longer an argument over it. He just gets out his Blade Buddy and no problem. Love the product, THANKS.
Bought on an impulse. I took my Blade Buddy on a two week trip to Spain just after receiving it. I used it on a blade set that had already been used for 2 or 3 weeks. I returned from Spain three weeks ago and I’m still using the same blade set.
A body-builder friend of mine who shaves his head & body daily says the Blade Buddy saves him about $7.00 weekly in razor blades. If you notice an increase in shipments to South Florida you have me to thank. If you ever have any coupons or discounts that I can pass along to others, please let me know.
Great product. I’m at 5 weeks and counting. Shaves as well as day one.
With Blade Buddy I have no reason to change from the razors I’ve been using for years. They work just fine, actually better than ever, and with no irritation. What’s not to like? Thanks Blade Buddy. PS: My wife is also using it now. Can you guess what I’m giving away this Christmas for stocking stuffers?
I’ve been using Blade Buddy a little over 7 weeks and I’m still using the same blade without so much as a nick.
I’ve had a shaved head for about 15 years and I went through about 1 razor per week. Since I’ve bought the Blade Buddy I’ve been able to use the same razor for close to 8 weeks now without experiencing any nicks, cuts, or discomfort. I have also recommended the product to my co-workers and friends. Great product!!
I bought two and gave one to my dad for Father’s Day. We are both still on our original blades and it’s now July 25th! My dad is retired and doesn’t shave as often but I still shave nearly every day. This has been a great investment. I don’t know how it works, but it certainly does. You guys rock!
This thing is amazing how the heck did you think of this? Keep up the good work. Thank You!!!
