I don't normally use wilkinson shavers but as they make a good convincing advert that they are a smooth shave and are cheaper than others I thought I would give them a try. What a mistake that was, not only was it ruff and pulling my hair out it has cut me all over my face. I WOULD NOT recommend this product to any of my friends or family and I won't be spending any more of my money on them as that are rubbish, I would rather use a 10 year old used bic than use this again!!!.

Hi , i recently bought the Wilkinson Sword Quattro 4 blade razor. Having run out of blades for my old razor and it looking a bit worn , i thought it was time for a change. £6.00 for a razor didnt seem to steep compared to some so i went for it and it is easily the worst razor i have ever used and would never reccomend it to anyone. Im not someone who likes shaving so tend to do it every few days and normally dont have a problem , but to be honest this razor seems to highlight the general... (read more)

Hi there guys. I am from czech republic and today i got such anger that I just have to post it, tell it to the world, this attitude is pissing me off so much. I have Wilkinson Sword Quattro, well, I had. After just one second this razor is full of hair (dirt, pieces of them) so its just absolutely not possible to continue shaving properly, and, it is also not possible to clean it by watter, fingers or different kind of brush. Why, srsly, why they even produce this ? I destroyed that thing in... (read more)

The quattro i found not so good for my skin, brought me up in a rash but i tried the wilkinson sword hydro 3 razor the other day and actually found it pretty decent. If your not a fan of this razor give the hydro 3 a try its pretty mint. (read more)

I have not purchased a Wilkinson's Sword product for a long while due to the fact that the blades cut my face to shreds. I used to think it was my own foolhardiness but I have since shaved with other much cheaper razors and had no such problems. I inadvertantly bought a pack today (I forgot momentarily) and my face promptly started bleeding in seven different places. The worst thing is that there are still nine blades left in the pack. I would write to them and complain but the last thing I... (read more)

As a shaver who mainly uses a straight razor or an old fashioned Double Edged Safety Razor, I received a Wilkinson Sword Quattro on a freebie and thought I'd give it a whirl for novelty purposes.
I was actually surprised to find it gave a close comfortable shave. Not as close as a straight shave, but as good as I'd expect from a cartridge based system.
Its an added tool in my arsenal now for when I want a shave in a hurry.
To all those saying their blades get clogged, please stop using... (read more)

The blades of the Wilkinson Sword Quattro are simply not sharp enough to give anything close to a comfortable shave. The pain was getting so immense that I stopped shaving at all for some time - thinking that the problem was with my sensitive skin rather than the razor. However, having switched to Gillette Mach 3 I am now getting a comfortable shave with none of the redness or bleeding I experienced from the Quattro.

The Quattro is at best fair but if they could sort out the pricing and also the head release system it would be a very good system indeed. (read more)

I used to shave with a Mach 3 and decided to try the Quattro. It gives an excellent shave (particularly on my collar line) using just soap and water. The blades last me two weeks (double that of Mach 3) so when comparing prices the Quattro is clearly superior. Perhaps the detractors are not shaving at the right angle. (read more)

So male grooming might not be something that takes up priority these days, especially with current trends. Nor might reading a review about it. Wanted to share my experience of this particular product anyway.
Shaving products generally make me laugh, every time I see an advert on TV some company have released a new improved version. In other words, added an extra blade. An extra dimension to the whole mundane experience men go through every morning (unless they're George Michael, Bob Geldof... (read more)

As most guys, I started out on Bic razors. I didn't really enjoy the time it took to shave with them, so from then I decided to buy an electric shaver, which lasted quite a long time until the blades wore out. So I thought I would go back to normal shavers again.
After a day of using a Bic again, I was terribly upset of the cuts it gave me on my face. So I decided to check out what was on the market, and I found the Wilkinson Sword Quattro. I used it for the first time, and it was... (read more)

I bought a normal Wilkinson Quattro as I fancied a change from my usual (and brilliant) M3. Out of the box I noticed that the handle and presence of the razor looks much nicer than any razor I've seen. The thick metal slab of a grip feels great in the hand, but it all goes down hill where it matters - shaving!
The actual blades seem extremely sharp which is great but the angle they are at does not agree with my face at all, around my chin and sideburns, this thing rips me apart without... (read more)

I obtained a free Wilkinson Quattro razor from my friend. I did not buy it. I never considered shifting from my faithful shaving stick which has only two blades, which are enough!
I would never have considered buying a four blade shaver. I think that had Gillette not come out with a three blade shaver, Wilkinson would have never dreamed of marketing one with four. It's their way of saying ours is better.
Quattro comes with a big seating base, the purpose of which is still unknown to me,... (read more)

Wilkinson Quattro - I bought the Quattro due to my electric shaver breaking and was pleasantly surprised. Prior to buying it I had read some of the reviews but thought I would try it anyway. It delivers a really clean shave. On the bad side, the blades cost more than the razor. (read more)

Wilkinson Quattro is a waste of money and time for a man who wants a close comfortable shave and just wants to shave once
I tried it a few years ago and after a few attempts I had to throw it away.
I recently purchased it again due to the money back offer, which I have to be honest made me decide to try it again. Perhaps I was using the wrong shaving cream, etc..
I kept the receipt and packaging regarding the money back offer very carefully for a few weeks then carelessly threw it away.... (read more)

Wilkinson Quattro - This is the best blade I have come across. I have tried all the Gillettes (Machs etc). I use the Quattro to shave my head too. This is the first blade that never causes cuts. And it lasts much longer than, say, the Mach 3. (read more)

The Wilkinson Quattro is too expensive, new blades are also very expensive. Clogs up far too quickly and very difficult to clear, I had to use a brush! Perhaps the blades are too c;ose together.I am very displeased with the Wilkinson Quattro razor, and will bin it once I have used all my blades. (read more)

A few weeks ago The Sun newspaper printed tokens on consecutive days that when put together could be taken to an Asda supermarket and redeemed for a free Wilkinson Sword Quattro razor. Although I doubted it would be able to meet the high standards of my Gillette Mach 3, I'm not one to pass up on a freebie so took them up on the offer.

I bought this Wlkinson Quatro razor as an alternative to the Mach 3. A moment of madness really because since using the latter I have considered it THE best razor I ever owned.
Shaving with the Quattro razor is altogether slower than I am used to. The feel of the razor does not have the confident edge I am used to, and whereas with the Mach 3 you can shave in a quick straight sweep (like the man on the ad!!) if you did the same with this razor you'd end up in casualty!
I shave most of my... (read more)

I've always been a little sceptical of the claims made by Wilkinson about their blades - I've tried all the Shavers but for closeness of shave, lastability of blades and low-irritation, none could ever top Gilette products. Until now that is.
Having coarse, wirey stubble on sensitive skin, I need a razor which will give me a close shave without leaving my face feel like it's been given a going-over with a sanding machine. With all of Wilkinson's previous efforts this is how I'd end up... (read more)
