The Cleancut ES412 Personal Shaver
The ES412 Cleancut Shaver is the standard by which all other personal shavers are compared. Other personal shavers come and go, but the ES412 soldiers on because no other personal shaver is as well made or performs as satisfactorily as the ES412. The ES412 Cleancut is manufactured in Japan, where quality of workmanship is still a source of personal pride. The ES412 has been manufactured by the same company for many years and reflects the Japanese disinclination to change simply for change’s sake. The ES412 Cleancut Shaver has proven to be a durable and most capable design. The turned “Stainless Steel” finish not only has a classic “retro” look, but provides an attractive nonslip surface for a firm, controlled grip.
While the ES412 has a timeless look, the “working end” of the ES412; the motor, blades and foil, has been continuously upgraded to reflect cutting edge advancements in shaver manufacturing technology. To ensure an efficient and nick free shave, the motor has been designed to provide high torque at lower speeds over the life of the battery. In contrast the high speed, low torque motors found on other shavers rapidly drains the battery and increases the chances of a painful “nick.” The design of the slots (holes) in the foil is the key to a shave free of cuts and nicks. It’s a delicate balancing act of shape and size. The slots must be large enough to allow hairs in to be cut, but still keep delicate skin out, all the while having a slot shape (in relation to the blades) that captures the hairs and ensures an efficient “clean cut” of the hair at the skin line. To obtain the necessary tolerances, the blades and foil of the ES412 are manufactured using an advanced proprietary electroforming process. The design of the ES412 foil has been copied by other manufacturers numerous times, but their comparatively primitive manufacturing techniques don’t allow their foils to approach the closeness and safety of the ES412’s foil.
The ES412 Cleancut Shaver is powered by a C-cell battery and not a rechargeable system. The C-cell system has some appreciable advantages. Plug-in rechargers are designed for each country’s plug pattern and voltage. With the C-cell system you can travel worldwide without worrying about voltages and having to lug a heavy recharger and plug adapters around. Spending the weekend camping? Take the ES412 Cleancut along. Packing light? Avoid the extra weight and bulk of a recharger and plug adapters with the ES412. At home or on the road the ES412 will show you why it’s the #1 Personal Shaver on the market today.
NOTE: NO TRIMMER IS INCLUDED. No electric shaver (face shaver or personal shaver) will cut hair longer than stubble. We HIGHLY encourage you to purchase a Model PS335 Cleancut “No Nick” Trimmer (available separately.) No other trimmer on the market leaves hair the right length for shaving. Trimming the area with the PS335 prior to shaving WILL result in much more positive shaving experience. Use a dry lubricant such as baby / talcum powder or our Sween Medical Grade Lubricant Powder (available separately.) Apply to the area to be shaved as a dry lubricant to prevent the foil from sticking to the skin. The ES412 includes a cleaning brush and instruction manual. C-cell battery not included.
