Recently, I got some email from Albert asking me about Wahl clippers. He purchased some, and after using them, sent me these comments (which he graciously permitted me to share):
Well I did it. I'm now part of the bald headed club. This specific Wahl is the Wahl Professional Balding Clipper Model 785110. I first used the the 1/16 cutting guide to get the the longer hair out of the way. This step was very easy and the shaver cut the hair like it wasn't there. I then removed the cutting guide and started again taking off the peach fuzz that was left. The shaver motored through this step again.
What was left was a VERY close shave that I guess would be like a 2-4 day growth of hair. I then took my Mach 3 razor that I use to shave my face, lathered the head and started with the razor, 15 minutes later I had a smooth head and NO cuts. With the excitement, I was going for the "Mr Clean Look," I lathered my face and shaved like I do every day before work and cut myself in 3 places. Go figure.
Overall I'm very happy satisfied with the Wahl and would recommend it to anyone that needs to get their hair down to the length that can be then handled by a razor.
I've used Wahl clippers myself; in fact, I still have the same clippers I bought around 20 years ago, and they still work brilliantly. I used those clippers to buzz my hair down the same way Albert did. Wahl makes some solid, solid products.
Looks like Amazon has them for around $40 as I type this, which seems like a great value to me.
