Fast powerful shaving
The core to this winning shaver is its ultra-fast linear motor. Two key benefits of the linear motor are:
- It‘s exceptionally powerful, providing 70,000 cross-cutting actions per minute.
- It maintains a steady cutting speed when shaving the toughest of beards, even if the hairs are flat-lying. The result is a fast, powerful shave with any beard.
Ultra-fast motor for powerful, smooth shaving
The super strong neodymium magnet helps drive the blades extremely fast to deliver up to 70,000 cross cutting actions per minute. This helps provide an exceptionally powerful and smooth shave.
No beard can slow this ultra-fast linear motor down, regardless of how thick it is. We’re confident, as we’ve tested it even against copper wires in our laboratories.
With a steady cutting speed right until the battery runs out, you can be confident of getting a powerful smooth shave every time.

30° Nano polished inner blades for clean, efficient cutting
Leveraging the Japanese samurai sword-making tradition, we’ve developed ultra-sharp Nano-polished inner blades honed to an acute 30° enabling them to cut hair very close to the root. The result is a superior and efficient shaving experience with a minimum number of stroked even on the chin, where beards tend to be densest.
