This sucks. Yeah it can go forward and back BUT I wouldn't consider it "shaving". It gets like the tip of each hair follicle then quits. I've used it 3 times and each was a waste of time since I had to go back over with my other razor after anyways.
I'm writing this review for a different raid product but every time I choose which one it takes me back to this so.. this is for the bee and hornet killer. We've had a huge bee nest for weeks and so we used this and it made them super mad. Didn't even kill them for like 3 days.
