Blades are the fundamental technology in any shaver, and Panasonic’s blades are the direct descendent of the traditional art of the Japanese bladesmith. Made of the finest steel, they are forged and ground to become exceptionally hard, strong, and sharp. Highest-level technology and skill come together in blades of incomparable quality.
A pattern with a multitude of distinct elements is inscribed on the gently curving surface, which gently captures beards of any texture and toughness.
Sharpened to a 30° acute angle, these blades have exceptionally low cutting resistance. The result is a clean, neat cut.
Demanding the finest materials: Yasukihagane stainless steel
From the finest materials, the finest blades. Panasonic uses highest-quality Yasukihagane stainless steel, famous worldwide as traditional Japanese blade steel.
Making the impossible possible: traditional forging methods
Panasonic leverage high-level processing technology and the skill of seasoned artisans. Based on traditional Japanese forging and grinding technologies, Panasonic’s proprietary technologies make possible an extremely acute blade angle and unprecedented sharpness.
A Legacy of Quality,
A Tradition of Innovation
Advancing the Japanese art of making exceptionally sharp and robust swords, Panasonic has applied state-of-the-art technology to develop blades of outstandingly high quality.
Hammering and shaping steel makes it both stronger and more flexible.
Subjecting the steel to high temperatures increases its hardness, durability, and wear-resistance.
Grinding produces a smooth, acute-angle blade with outstanding sharpness.
A stringent inspection process ensures that every blade meets uncompromising quality standards.
