The Model ES412 Seiko Cleancut Personal Shaver has the distinction of being the first, and still best, personal / pubic shaver on the market. The Seiko Cleancut Personal Shaver has been made by the same manufacturer for many years (decades) and is still made in Japan, where quality and workmanship are considered high art.
The business end of the Seiko Cleancut Personal Shaver consists of the slotted foil, the interior rotating blade assembly and the motor that turns the blade assembly. In order to produce a superior shave these components need to obtain a delicate working balance. First the motor must have enough torque that it can cut hairs easily, yet run at a slow enough speed that it doesn't grab the hair and rip it rather than cut it. Second, the blade assembly must be designed to easily glide under the foil glide but not grind. Superior design and the ability to achieve exacting manufacturing tolerances ensure this is accomplished.
Last, the piece that brings it all together, the foil. To make this extraordinary foil requires superior metallurgy, innovative manufacturing techniques and human based engineering to achieve a slot pattern that effectively captures and cuts hairs while not cutting the tender skin of the pubic region. But that's what the Seiko Cleancut Personal Shaver is; a well-engineered and balanced shaving experience with the advantage of incremental improvements over time. And clad in its turned stainless-steel case, it also has classic retro style good looks.
NOTE: NO TRIMMER IS INCLUDED. No electric shaver (face shaver or personal shaver) will cut hair longer than stubble. Either blade shave first or purchase a Model PS335 Cleancut No Nick Trimmer (available separately.) It is recommended that baby / talcum powder (purchased separately) be applied as a dry lubricant to the area to be shaved (prevents the foil from sticking to the skin.)
The Seiko Cleancut Personal Shaver includes a cleaning brush and instruction manual. C-cell battery (1) required (not included.)
