I love electric razors, especially now that they’ve evolved to the point where you can get a shave that’s almost indistinguishable from a regular razor and shaving cream. Plus let’s not forget the convenience factor – you’re definitely not going to give yourself an old school shave in the car during your morning commute!
Today’s review is on the Panasonic ES8103S Pro-Curve Wet/Dry Action Shaving System, my new best friend. First I’ll go over the product specs, then we’ll get to the nitty gritty where I detail my experiences so far in using this electric shaver daily for the past six months.
The Panasonic ES8103S is one of the first electric razors on the market to use Nano Technology, which means incredibly sharp blades that deliver a smooth, clean shave each and every time. And while most shavers offer blades that only cut at 45 or 90 degrees, the Panasonic ES8103S has one of the sharpest blade angles on the market at 30 degrees, which further improves accuracy and cutting performance.
But that’s not all; this model also features a patented linear motor that delivers 13,000 RPM of frictionless cutting power, making it one of the fastest razors in the world. What does that mean for your face? No more pulling or irritation! This model is also fully immersible in water, so you can shave in the shower or out, your choice. And with the exclusive HydraCleanTM dock, your razor will always be clean and ready to go every morning.
My Experience with the Panasonic ES8103S
After my old Panasonic crapped out, I decided to go for a top of the line model from Braun. Big mistake! That thing must have been designed for baby beards because it definitely couldn’t handle my thick, wiry facial hair. But the Panasonic ES8103S is a completely different story. It plows through week old facial hair like it wasn’t even there and the motor never even sounds like it’s struggling at all.
Best of all, no pulling, no yanking, no ripping! And it takes far fewer passes to get each and every hair, which has practically cut my morning shave time in half. I also love the fact that I can use it in the shower, and so does my wife, because that means no more hairs scattered all around the sink, counter and floor!
- Razor sharp
- Adjustable Pivoting head for closer shave (up, down, back and forth)
- Shave wet or dry (with or without lather), even in the shower
- Automatic cleaning dock
The Bottom Line
I’ve been through just about every make and model of electric shaver on the market, so I have a very good idea of what works and what doesn’t. The Panasonic ES8103S is a great electric razor on the market right now, and puts even the most expensive ones from Braun and other brands to shame. I would have no problem at all recommending this to a buddy or to anyone that’s shopping for a great razor for that guy in their life.
