Panasonic‘s Sharpest Blades

All blades are made of surgical grade stainless steel with high rust resistance and durability for lasting shaving performance. It’s based on the art of the Japanese Samurai sword-making tradition, we’ve developed durable inner blades that are nano-sharpened to just 30 degrees.
This means they can cut the thickest stubble efficiently with a minimal number of strokes, so there’s no damage to skin.

Sensor Personalizes Your Shave

For a shave that is personal to your facial contours, stubble thickness and density, the ES-LS8A uses responsive beard sensor technology. This boosts power where beard growth is heavy and reduces it in other areas to prevent skin irritation, ensuring an even shave to keep you stubble free.

Unique 22D Flexible Shaver Head

The 22D flexible shaver head moves in 10 directions. The new floating blade mechanism allows the 6 blades to move in 12 directions independently, both vertically and horizontally, applying less and even pressure around the chin and cheek contours for a close and gentle shave. By increasing the skin contact area, the burden on the skin is reduced by 10%*.
