Legendary Craftsmanship. A Tradition of Innovation.

Advancing the Japanese art of crafting exceptionally sharp and durable swords, Panasonic has applied state-of-the art blade technology to the Panasonic ARC5 Series shavers.

The result is precision blades of extraordinary strength and performance.
And the edge you need for an extremely close, comfortable shave.

Advanced 5-Blade ARC Shaving System

The powerful wet/dry, ARC 5-blade system combines personalized shaving performance with multi-blade precision to gently cut through facial hair for consistently smooth results. Ultra-thin, ultra-sharp Nanotech™ blades and ARC foils are forged from premium Japanese stainless steel.

Five Floating, Precision Blade System

Cut cleanly, quickly and efficiently through any beard thickness for exceptionally smooth shaving with five ultra-thin, nano-polished, independently floating stainless-steel blades, each precision honed to a perfect 30° angle for exceptional durability and sharpness.

ARC5 Skin Comfort Foil™ System

Three micro-thin, hypoallergenic ARC foils and dual, super-smooth skincare rollers work together to provide an exceptionally close shave.
• The Finishing Foil captures and cuts stubborn hairs
• A Lift-Tech Foil uses reverse-tapered edges to lift, hold and cut flat-lying hair
• The Quick-Comb Blade is specially angled to catch and cut longer hairs
• Two Skincare Rollers help reduce friction on the skin for a more comfortable shave

Close, Personalized Comfort

As you shave, an advanced 3D Multi-Flex™ Pivoting Head flexes up-and-down, side-to-side and back-and-forth
to follow the individual contours of your face, neck and jaw for the ultimate in close, personalized comfort

Performance, With an Individual Touch

Powered by a high-efficiency 14,000 CPM linear-drive motor, the Panasonic Shaver also features a Beard Sensor that automatically adjusts power levels to match varying beard densities on the face, chin and neck. And when shaving is done, a pop-up trimmer adds the perfect edge to sideburns and mustaches.

Shave Conveniently,
Dry or In the Shower

When you're in a hurry, the shaver provides a quick, smooth dry shave. And, because it's designed to be 100% washable and fully immersible in water, it performs just as efficiently in the shower or over the sink using your favorite shaving foam or gel.

Natural, Sure-Grip Design

Designed to fit naturally in either hand, the sleek, masculine, metal handle and ergonomic, soft-touch rubber grip ensure total shaving control, even when used in the shower.

Check Shaver
Status at a Glance

The smart, easy-to-read 10-stage LED in the handle makes it quick and simple to monitor shaver functions like battery power level, recharging status, travel lock on/off and more.

Great for Travel

For shaving and grooming away from home, a durable travel pouch is included to easily carry/store the shaver and AC adapter/charger. Fits neatly into bags and luggage.

ARC5 Shaver Replacement Blades and Foils

To help maintain the level of grooming comfort and satisfaction you demand from your shaver, the high-performance blades and foils should be replaced once every one to two years* with genuine, easy-to-install Panasonic replacements blades, foils and skincare rollers.

ES-LV6N-A is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lower cost version gives good shave I am pleasantly surprised at the effectiveness of this less glitzy version of the new five blade shaver. I'm getting a closer, faster shave than with the previous five blade model. Some of that is the new blade but don't remember my old shaver doing as well even with new blades. You probably won't miss all the chrome on the fancy model and won't have that big wash gizmo taking up room on your counter. Shaver washes up nicely with soft soap at the sink. Model with washer gizmo requires extra cost solution replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shaver ES-LV6N-A It does not shave as well as a cheaper product that I was using just prior to purchasing this shaver. The replacement shaver heads are very expensive. Wish I have bought the other shaver. This shaver is not a good value; will not purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shaver Yet Just upgraded from the ESLV65-S and let me tell you that it was totally worth the upgrade. This shaver shaves my face in just one stroke and doesn't irritate my face at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blew me away I had been using a competitive product for many years. I finally decided it needed to be replaced. When I saw this new unit was in the pipeline to the US, I decided to wait until it was available before purchasing. I let my beard grow for about a week before using LV6N and boy was I impressed. The unit easily cut my week-long stubble and delivered an impressively smooth shave in just a couple of minutes. It had no issues with my neck. It would have easily taken me 5+ minutes with my older unit and the cut would have been no where as close. Great job Panasonic. I am impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! I am so amazed by this shaver. I purposely let my stubble grow to a length that would be difficult for even a razor blade to conquer, and I have to say, the Panasonic handled it exceptionally well. I'll admit the growth shouldn't have been that long/full, but it didn't matter. My shave was CLOSER then any blade I've ever used! So smooth, and not a spot of irritation anywhere. I've always considered my 'beard' more like wires coming out of my face. Very course, strong, and growing in every possible direction. This thing does under the chin as if it was the flat part of your cheeks. There was one spot on my neck that some flat hairs were getting passed but I think that was more to my not applying the Lab Series electric shave properly, and that I couldn't figure out which direction the shaver should go. But once I did, they were gone too! Again, my face felt so smooth, so comfortable, even the next morning as I am writing this review! I had no idea it would be that amazingly good! I will never go back to a blade. Period. This is just way too enjoyable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shaving Nirvana Achieved Simply stated, Panasonic - who already manufactures the finest electric shavers on the planet (I own three of them) - has moved the bar with the ES-LV6N-A (and ES-LV9N-S, if you prefer it with the clean, dry and charge base) from near-perfection to perfection! I have been shaving for over fifty years (the last twenty of which with electric shavers) and am here to tell you that this shaver delivers the closest, smoothest and most comfortable shave I have ever experienced ... period. I tried Panny's most recent model before this one (the ES-LV95-S) and returned it ... not because it wasn't a great shaver, but because it was no quantum leap over my other Pannys ... this one is! I won't repeat the specs and highlights (Panny does a fine job of that on the site), but I will tell you that the shaver feels great in your hands (its app the same footprint size wise as the ES-LA93-K, but is lighter, feels solid/well built and you can get a real good grip on it); it is - by far - the least noisy electric shaver I've ever used; it achieves perfection in shaving every contour of my face, including my chin .. and my head and does so with ease. If you want the best electric shaver ever made (ok, in my opinion of course), buy this product. If you prefer the ease and convenience of a clean, dry and charge base with your shaver, get the ES-LV9N-S .. they are identical shavers except for the base. Bravo Panasonic .. you have outdone yourselves with this one!
