Halacha - Shaver
Submitted by Akiva  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer: The foil shavers such as Braun and Remington are generally even less problematic than the rotary heads as they do not contain blades sharp enough to cut on their own. I have seen the issue raised that the foil screen itself may be sharp enough to cut hairs and act like a razor, which would be problematic. However, I have tried it on an older model of the Braun and it did not cut hairs, but it is worthwhile to test a newer model as well.

Ideally, you should show the specific model to a competent Rav.
