Although the variety of barbering tools on the market is vast, trust me I've tried a lot of them, I keep coming back to the same Clippers (just an upgrade here and there). Wahl clippers, for me, are the best on the market but like anything, you get what you pay for. Just like any brand, Whal's clippers vary in quality depending on price. I have now settled on the 100th anniversary 1919 clippers.

From the full metal housing to the stylish tapering arm they really do look the part but more importantly, they really perform. All barbers have their reasons for choosing their kit and here's mine. The standard blade that comes with these clippers feels more forgiving to someone with faster hand speed than the wedge blade that comes with the Wahl senior but I must stress that this is just a matter of taste. It's difficult to try before you buy with clippers so maybe ask a friend if you can borrow theirs before you commit to the big purchase. Traditionally the codless clippers motor didn't have the power to be in the same league as the power that you can get from a corded clipper. However times have changed and as the technology and engineering have improved, Wahl has really stepped their game up and you can now get amazing power and battery life from a cordless clipper which is great for all of us who don't want to have to worry about getting tangled up in those trailing cables.
