This one is the best - it's the first clothes shaver I've seen that comes with a power cord so it doesn't keep slowing down. It's larger than usual, so works quickly and efficiently, removing even the really fine pilling on fabrics suh as silk. Also worked well on fluffy cashmere without getting stuck or ruining the fabric. Gentle, yet tough on pills - this shaver is very impressive and exceeded my expectations.
This is a WONDERFUL clothes shaver. The plug in attachment saves money on batteries, and leaves the shaver light in your hand. It takes only a couple of "swipes" of the shaver to complete the job. I removed it from the box and immediately used is on numerous shirts, of several different fabrics (acrylic, cashmere, wool, and cotton). There are no damages to any of the shirts, and they all look new. I would recommend this product to a friend.
I have used it and love it. It is the best shaver on the market. I used it on several sweaters and now they are just like new again.

I didn't care for the battery operated Clothes Shavers and hadn't seen many electric so I bought this as soon as I found it. Has a large shaving surface that doesn't end up pulling the fabric and fibers.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very Good
I was happy to see that this product worked successfully for others, so it was easy to make this purchase. I looked at the comments and, on the whole, it was rated well. Upon receipt of the shaver, I got all of my pilled sweaters out with intent to have a successful "shave - athon." I don't know if it's the types of acrylics I have or if I'm doing something wrong; however, I can't seem to get this to shave any of the pilling. When I pressed on the unit in an effort to get closer to the fabric, I did put a hole through one of my acrylic vests. At that point, I boxed it up and put it away. I hate to say it, but I am very disappointed.
This is a very good sweater shaver, although I haven't used others for comparison. I was hoping it would shave even closer than it does. It gets the larger pills easily, but not the pre-pill fuzz, so sweaters don't quite come out looking new. It's light and comfortable to hold, and it plugs in, which is a great feature. It also comes with a brush to keep the blades clean. It's well-designed.
i was thinking getting this big shaver would cut alott of time, well the shaver is ok, but the holes on the sides the lint blows out, also you have to take it apart to blow the lint out of the blade and the compartment the blade is in, about every six passes .Kinda of a pain but all in all it works good but it's not any better than the cheap ones you buy.
Do not waste your money here. I bought it because of the reviews. I work for a major airline and we have been issued a uniform fabric vest that is so poor quality that it balls up before even washing it. A few of us went in together to purchase the "better" item. It is a total waste of money...it does not even shave the bumps and balls from the fabric unless you press down extremely hard. It does not work on the seams or corners.
I've had a tiny battery-operated clothes shaver for a long time that I love but it would take waaay too long on large sweaters, scarves, blankets, etc. This shaver's size makes it a quick job to de-fuzz large areas. Unfortunately the large size also creates a sort of fan from the spinning blades, making whispier types of lint harder to clean than with my tiny one; but it's still a huge time (and battery) saver to do the majority of a piece with the big shaver and then getting a few tricky spots with my little one. You have to be brave with it- really stretch out the fabric as you work to get the pills to stand out, and really press against the fabric; gently gliding over, say, a cable knit won't do it. But it has never damaged any of my fabrics and if you use a little muscle it does a great job.
You will be amazed how good this shaver works; it does a GREAT JOB in restoration of just about any type of fabric, from wools to acrylics, cottons, rayons, and polyesters. Some fabrics may require a little extra care, and maybe even extra time in reshaving certain areas of the garment. I was very satisfied with this product, and recommend everyone to have one
This product is much larger than the German made shavers that were once available and will cut fine fabrics such as cashmere. I would not recommend this shaver to anyone who values their fine cashmeres, etc.

- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Holes and blade cover that glides over fabric are too large. This shaver will not work for fine cashmeres or wools.
