I'd been hoping to find ONE item to cut my hair AND trim my facial hair and I have found it. Firstly, a very quick and prompt delivery of the item. Ordered Monday afternoon, arrived Tuesday morning. The clipper itself performs excellently as I've come to expect from Wahl products and it works just fine on African hair too. I previously used the Baldfader which gives a VERY close cut, which you WILL feel. But I was pleasantly surprised that this felt more comfortable against my skin, although at the cost of closeness. But I'm happy for the trade-off as I've changed my look and no longer go for the super-close, bald cut. The adjustable taper lever is nice to have too. The inbuilt trimmer is a genius piece of equipment (albeit a bit noisier than the main unit) and great for those finishing touches. Overall, I'm very pleased with my kit.
Having tried lots of different clippers in the past, this is the first one that seems to have enough power to cut hair smoothly. It glides straight through without pulling and allowed me to finish the job in half the time. Excelent service too, ordered Wednesday night, arrived Friday morning.
