Excerpt: Rotary shavers advance again with the arcitec, a svelte and lightweight tool that’s as good as rotaries get. The breakthrough: heads mounted on a wildly swiveling pivot, which follows the face closer than any other model we’ve seen. Too bad a smooth shave requires a fair amount of do-over work.
Pros: Lithe; glides easily over skin. Includes two charging options: a hard travel case and an upright stand. LED indicates charge time remaining.
Cons: So lightweight it’s difficult to control with precision, especially on narrow regions like upper lip. Still missed hairs after lengthy shaves.
