|Halacha - shavers|
|Submitted by chaim Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
There are many opinions on the matter. The lift action of the lift and cut shavers is certainly problematic according to most opinions including R' Moshe Feinstein zatzal. They should defintely be altered before using. Regarding non lift and cut models, there are poskim who prohibit them because of their sharpness and I have heard that there are facilities to alter them and render them less problematic, but I don't have any specific information about who or where. This is opinion especially common in Eretz Yisroel. In America I belive that the majority of non-Chasidishe poskim permit these shavers without any alterations. Also, the vibrating type such as made by Remington and Braun do not have sharp blades and are less problematic.
