How long before my order ships and how long does shipping take?
Standard Ground orders placed Monday - Friday will ship out within 2 business days. Once your order has shipped from our warehouse, the average shipping time frame is 3-6 business days. Delivery time-frames will be shorter for customers who pay extra for expedited shipping. If you have any problems with your BAKBLADE shipment please contact us.
Does my back hair grow back faster after shaving it?
No. According to many sources including Lawrence E. Gibson, M.D., shaving hair doesn’t change it’s thickness, color or rate of growth. Shaving facial or body hair gives the hair a blunt tip. The tip might feel coarse or “stubby” for a time as it grows out. During this phase, the hair might be more noticeable and perhaps appear darker or thicker, but in actuality it’s not.

If I purchase the BAKBLADE "do it yourself" back shaver how often will I need to shave my back?
Typically, most customers find themselves “cleaning up” their back once or twice a week on average. In order to maintain a clean look and feel spending 5-10 minutes every few days is all you really need with your BAKBLADE products since our products are designed for the quickest and cleanest shave on the market.
How long do BAKBLADE shaver blades last?
The answer certainly varies depending on how much back hair each individual case would have, but on average most of our customers find that each blade will last them 5 to 7 shaves. In order to maintain getting the quickest and cleanest shave, we recommend that customers change out their blade at least once every month.
What is the secret behind BAKBLADE'S DryGlide technology?
Our patented blades are designed to shave body hair which in most areas tends to be less coarse than facial hair. That being said, the DryGlide technology is designed to control razor flexibility in a manner that allows a lighter and less rigid friction between razor and skin surface compared to what is commonly found with facial razors. This grants our customers the option of either DRY shaving (shaving without the use of a lubricating shaving cream or gel) or WET shaving (shaving with the use of a lubricating shaving cream or gel).
When purchasing BAKBLADE products, how does it compare to the other alternatives?
Waxing: Aside from the enormous amount of pain that no man should endure, the annual cost just to get a smooth back with waxing sessions comes in around $1,200.00 – $1,400.00. Using the BAKBLADE saves yourself money, stress & pain while still giving the results you want!
Laser Hair Removal Treatments: Laser hair removal treatments are not only extremely painful but often do not provide the results you pay for. Depending on your hair type there’s a good chance you will be very disappointed with the results. On top of this, you are looking at paying roughly $450 per treatment. Most people undergo several treatments, which puts the cost well above $3,500 – without any guarantees! Need we say more?
Electrical Trimmer: Electrical trimmers do not necessarily provide a smooth finish. Trimmers are made from moving parts which often tend to break down after time and are not always 100% efficient to begin with. Also, you will find yourself spending large sums of money on batteries as most of the traditional electric back trimmers on the market require batteries for use.
Chemicals: Chemicals will simply just dissolve the hair. You must have someone else apply the chemicals, wait another 15 minutes and then rinse it off. Once the chemicals are rinsed off you may need to further shave or pull the remaining hairs that did not initially get dissolved. Severe irritation and even scarring have been effects of using chemicals. Save your skin and get a BAKBLADE shaver.
