What's in the Box?

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.

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

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

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-LV61-A is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Panasonic ES-LV61-A I have had similar models to this razor like Norelco's & Braun. This razor is the BEST I have ever used. I also love the fact that I can clean it easily with sop & water and do not have to keep paying each month for cleaning fluids. This razor shave s faster and cleaner than any other razor I have used. I have no connections with Panasonic, this is just my own personal view. i did a lot of reviews & research before I purchased this razor. I thought it would do a good job, but it does a GREAT job. Think they wre getting ready to change models, so they had a close-out price of $149.99 which I thought was a very good value compared to other similar razors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Razor Bar None I'm that guy that has had just about every razor on the market and this razor is the best so far. My beard is so thick, when I go to the local Barber, he has to use about three straight razor blades to finish my shave. This Arc5 razor cuts so close and easily, by the end of the day, I still don't have a 5 O'Clock shadow. I would recommend the Arc5 models and pass on the cleaner. Just clean your razor in the sink after every shave and save your money on the auto cleaner. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing shaver It has been many years since I used an electric shaver, this one blows most that I have used out of the water. The next best thing would be a regular shaving blade. It gets close, and doesn't irritate the skin. I use this with electric pre shave, and Donald Trump Success after shave. Go and buy this shaver and you wont be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very close, quick shave I've used them all over the past 40 years, even older Panasonic's. After using the arc 5 for only a week, it's the closest, fastest most comfortable shave I've experienced. I changed from a rotary and had no irritation or chafing. I am very pleased so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I've ever used I got an email offer to get this razor at half-price. I had a similar, lower-end model & liked it so I took the plunge & I'm glad I did. This is the only electric razor I've ever owned that pretty well shaves as close as a blade. I guess it has something to do with the 30 degree angle of the blades? Of course, technique is important as well - if I keep a VERY light touch & make several passes over each area I get fantastic results - the key is repetition, not more pressure!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shaver...for now So far, so good. Definitely a step up in performance from my ES-LA63. That shaver was great, too. I would have kept it if the LCD hadn't failed. As so many have noted, these LCDs tend to fail leaving you without knowing how much charge is left. It usually happens after the warranty expires. My trusty LA-63 was replaced once but after that unit's LCD failed I was out of luck according to Panasonic customer service. I just hope that I can get a few years out of the LV-61.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Close Shave Replaced my 20 year old Norelco. Shaves close and smooth. Feels good in hand. Trimmer works well. Value only fair because of high price and, so far, (in breaking-in period) relatively short battery life between charges.
