Great electric razor but if you love a very close shave, stick to your gillette or schick


Best electric razor I have ever owned.
Have owned a Braun, this Panasonic takes the crown.
Quiet, comfortable and gentle.
But there are parts of my stubble that demand a once over with my disposable blade.
I have gotten into a routine: Leisurely shave with the Panasonic on weekends i.e. not super fast shave but enjoyable part of my 'winding down' routine.
Gillette or Schick during the week, closer, quicker shaves.
Should you buy this? If you want an alternative to your disposable blades, yes.
If you want an ultra close, or time efficient shave, probably not.
Not cheap. ~$500 will buy you lots of replacement blades.
However, if you enjoy a shave with an electric razor, this is the one to get.

Questions & Answers



I don't understand how these are 5 blades, there are only 2 rows of blades under the foils. There are 5 foils on the head but the foils do not cut do they? I thought just the blades under the foil does the cutting.
