So, I bought this callus shaver on amazon after reading the reviews. When I heard that this callus shaver was best used on wet feet, I tried to use it in the shower. That didn't work (the shaver ran uselessly over my calluses, even when applying pressure), nor did it work on really wet feet once I was out of the shower. The best way, for me, to use this is to shower, towel off my feet thoroughly so my feet were then dry, and then use this shaver. Worked like a charm. It's probably wrong to get as much joy as I do from seeing long peels o' rough foot skin come off with this shaver. I use this once or twice a week and get a satisfying amount of dead skin off without injuring myself. It's been almost two months, and don't see any need to get a replacement shaver blade yet. (I don't use the rasp part at all.) I love it, and wish I'd bought it sooner.
**UPDATE** Sept 16, 2008: I've finally used the rasp part! I have a length-wise rough bit on the ball of my foot, just below my 2nd toe, on each foot. They each just look like a line, but they're almost a crack. I couldn't get to it with the shaver, or, I could, but the shaver didn't have anything to "catch" on, since the surrounding skin is soft. So I used the rasp on it, which reminds me of a grater for nutmeg or something.Read more ›

Like lots of other commenters, it was a bit tricky to figure out how the whole blade receptacle thing worked. The instructions on the back of the box are pretty useless and don't include a single picture, and I had zero experience with any similar products. After having finally taken the thing apart and putting it back together I now understand the very simple design of it, but that only makes the instructions on the box seem even less relevant, and more confusing. So let me explain it the way it made sense to me...
I've had trouble with my feet and shoes for years and years. I used to get blisters. Now I get callouses and, as anyone with deep callouses at the ball of the foot will tell you, they kill! Try walking with a pebble in each shoe and then add one to the little toe just in case you're a sadomasochist. That's what my lousy feet have been like, and this from a guy who played racquetball. squash, and tennis for over 45 years! (Throw in 5 years of marching including "extra duty" for those who know the old military.)
Of all the doctors I don't mind going to, the podiatrist is the one that I mind the least. You come out feeling better than when you went in. But who wants to do that on a weekly or bi-weekly (or is it semi-weekly?) basis. That's how quickly my callouses recur. This Tweezerman Safety Glide with rasp is the best tool I've found. The fact that it's a combo and that the rasp when exposed covers the blade makes it a great tool, and for under 10 bucks!
The rasp is almost as good as what my mom used to use. Her's was a 3" oval and remained sharp or I should say remains sharp to this day. Still, having one tool for cutting and one for smoothing is great.
I want to disagree with those who say to do this when your feet or callouses are moist. I found that the blade binds because the skin around the callous IS moist. Best to have the blade glide over the raised callous bit by bit than to get caught at the base of the callous.
Btw, nothing will ever make my feet smooth, and I don't really care.Read more ›
It is possible to overdue it but I have never seriously injured myself. Just a day or two of soreness is the worst encounter I have had. But now I know how long to use it for which is not long at all. I have very large amounts of callous all around the edges of my heel - and this works because it is sharp, aggressive, and as scary as it sounds . . it "slices off" the excess tissue. How it does not cut the sensitive skin is a mystery to me. You just press lightly to shave off thin layers or hard to shave off thick layers.
FINALLY - add cream - any cream - your feet will feel like . . . well, like "BUTTA" ! !
