    I've got a Panasonic rt51
    So not expensive one
    Hoping I can get replacements which aren't similar cost to shaver

    Don't know if it's still in business but Cowens in Westcliff on Sea used to be good for shaver spares.

    Never thought about the foil as just the blade cutters
    But for both its £27 I think the link is above which is close to what a new one costs!

    Yes

    Shaver cutters last 12-18 months for best performance after which they don't do the business

    The foils wear as well and I guess need replacing every 2nd time

    £17 for a new set of cutters is well worth it. Just like a new shaver currently costing around the £50 mark

    You'll find the same costs with all electric shavers. The motors last forever but the cutters are just like any wet shaver blade. They do wear

    What does help is a shaver lubricant

    Don't think you need to buy a new shaver. New blades will do the trick. Whatever brand shaver you use
