Our impression

Shaving with the ES-LA63-S Arc4 is about allowing a 4-blade electric razor do its job neatly.

The razor makes use of a double-motor system that cuts at a 30° precision-honed angle.

The nanotech blades give you thorough durability and sustained sharpness.

The fast and powerful motor comes with a linear drive that generates 14, 000 cuts in a minute.

So you have 56, 000 cross-cuts with four blades in a minute.

With that much power you could take down the toughest beard with considerable ease.

These cross-cutting actions are also effective when shaving the difficult areas like the chin and neck.

A second motor is dedicated to cause up-and-down vibrations in the head of the shaver.

Since the head also moves in a linear pattern, the shaver lifts up hair to give you smoother and more even shaves.

The linear motion of the head considerably alleviates the force you need to apply on the razor.

All you need to do is press it closely against the skin and the job is done.

However, for the first few uses, you could consider holding the skin tightly and then press the razor against it.

The head will automatically adapt to your facial contours after about a week of use.

More traction on facial contours is provided by the ARC Multi-fit foils.

The foils allow the razor to stay gentle while gliding down the contours of the face.

They greatly enhance comfort when the head climbs up or down the jaw, neck and chin.

If you have an Adam’s apple on the throat, you will not even notice when the head passed it.

Now multi-fit foils are not ordinary enhancements you find if every third razor.

They have been included for a purpose and that is evident in the comfortthe razor gives you while shaving.

This also partly answers the price tag we talked about earlier.

Even the pop-up trimmer included with the package has amazing detailing.

You cannot help notice how precisely honed the blade is in there.

When working on mustaches, you literally have control on every single hair of the area.

That is typically the level of dexterity you expect with professional grooming.

And this razor gives you just that.

However, doing sideburns with this pop-up could be a little tedious.

While it does not ever compromise with the finish, you may have to spend considerably more time with the sideburns.

The LCD on the ARC is straight from those gizmo movies.

You get a 10-stage LCD embedded on the handle of the ES-LA63-S Arc4. It allows you easy checks on the power status, replacement and cleaning, charge and blades.

Count that on top of the shower friendliness of the device.

Both the blades and the LCD indicatorswork perfectly in and out of the shower room.

You may use it with or without gel and it will do just fine.

Just make sure you give it enough rest between sessions. There is a slight heating concern which you would want to avoid.

Arc4 WetDry Shaver

The price of the ES-LA63-S Arc4 is almost totally justified when you look at the ergonomics and aesthetics in a combined manner.

If offers you a firm yet comfortable grip during the quick dry shaves.

When shaving over the sink, the grip fills even stronger with the anti-slip coating on the handle.

Like most other good foil shavers, it is the head and its multi-flexing actions that win it for the ES-LA63-S Arc4.

The blades cut in four different directions to generate in the upward of 50, 000cross-cutting actions.

There is a lot more you can do with the blades once you get a hang of the way they swing.

But it is always advisable to be slow at the start.

And since it cannot be replaced, you will need to replace your whole electric razor. However, Panasonic has been mindful to include two 1.2 V batteries which are a lot more powerful than regular rechargeable batteries.

You can expect to get almost five years of great, uninterrupted service before your battery finally begins to lose power.
