I have cut the hair of many men in my family with these clippers and I am amazed to think how much money has been saved. This clipper pays for itself as long as you can get 2 cuts out of it and I have gotten a full years worth of cuts. The men whose hair I cut liked to get their hair done ever 4ish weeks and that cost adds up so fast if you go to a barber! These clippers are easy to use, cut the hair cleanly and evenly, and leave a great looking haircut. They come with all the different sized guides you would need to cut many different lengths of hair. One person likes me to use the 2 shortest guides and I feel like I am almost balding him, while the largest (8) gives a longer length cut. They glide easily through the hair and I love how short they are able to go to trim down around the neck and ears. Make sure to oil the blades, it will last longer I am very happy with this purchase and even if they only last a couple years will repurchase since they pay for themselves so quickly.
