Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! I have used DE blades, shaving soap and a brush for years. Three weeks ago, I underwent shoulder surgery to repair the torn rotator cuff on my right arm. Being right handed, I wasn't about to hazard handling my old razor with my left hand. I studied the reviews and decided to give the Panasonic 81-k a try. I've been using it for a week now, and I tell you IT SHAVES AS CLOSE FOR ME AS THE DE BLADES, and in half the time, with no irritation whatsoever. I have used the shaver both as a dry shave and wet with foam. The cleaning system works well so far and is very convenient. September 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Fantastic electric shaver Nothing short of fantastic. Best electric shaver ever. September 1, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 Doesn't shave neck hairs well I have the two blade version of this razor. It provides a much better overall shave. I was hoping this one would be as good but it isn't. It appears the head is just too big. September 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Best Shaver Ever! Super Close, Super Smooth and Super Fast! I was a little concerned about the manuverability of this shaver because it has a giant 5-blade head. But I'm extremely impressed on how well this shaver is able to navigate all the contours of my entire face and neck with complete easy and finesse. The 5-blade head is very flexible and I'm able to get a closer and cleaner shave in half the time it took with my previous high end electric shaver. September 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 great product Best razor I've ever owned. Quick close shave in short time. The shipping was fast but I think that's because I live in the same state as the warehouse. Overall very happy. September 1, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good Shaver Bad Charging station I Have owned two of these. The shaver is good, but replacement parts are hard to come by. However, the charging cleaning station is pure junk. Both of mine have failed at the 6 month point. New cleaning cartridges are expensive. Recommend another Panasonic 5 head shaver of a different series. August 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Great ES I used a Panasonic ES8243 4 blade razor for 6+ years. I shave both my face and head with a electric razor and when my 6 year old razor began taking longer (used about 70% of the charge), I decided to look for a new razor. Based on a lot of reviews I read, I chose the ES-LV81-K razor and am extremely pleased with the results. The shave is a lot closer, a lot quicker and only uses about 10% of the charge. I'd recommend this ES to anyone. August 28, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best shaver I have been using a Panasonic electric razors for more than 30 years, and recently needed a replacement. This is the first foil head razor, and am very happy with it. I go over the hair once, and it is smooth as can be-- don't have to go over the same spot more than once. Don't know if it is due to the foil head or the 5 shavers, but the after math is terrific. I'm very pleased with the results. Have had it for only three weeks, but if I get the same results after an year, I can truly say that it is the best electric razor I have ever purchased.
