The present invention relates to an electric shaver. More particularly, the present invention relates to an electric shaver comprising a handle (2) and a shaver head (3) including at least one cutter unit (100) having a drivable cutter element (4) and a shear foil (5), wherein said shaver head is connected to said handle by means of a support structure (30) which in some cases may provide for some movability of the shaver head relativ to the handle. Said shaver head and/or said at least one cutter unit may have an elongated contour with a main axis (40) extending transverse to the handle's longitudinal axis (20) and substantially parallel to a cutter oscillation axis of said cutter element. The shaver head is spaced apart frome the handle with a gap (200) defined between a bottom face (201) of said shaver head and a top face (202) of said handle, said gap forming a ring-shaped contraction in the outer contour of the shaver around said support structure and giving access to the support structure bridging said gap.
