These clippers were originally designed by Wahl to give African American men a tool that could give them the close fades and all-over shaves they were looking for. The Wahl Balding is thus brilliant on afro hair and, since that's the toughest to clip, will make short work (no pun intended!) of all other hair types too.
The powerful vibrating armature motor runs off the mains at twice the speed of pivot motor clippers, while its high quality build makes it tough enough to withstand the rigours of the professional environment.
The Balding's blades are fine-toothed with zero overlap and made from surgical quality steel plated with rust-resistant chrome. They have a cutting width of 40 mm and a notional cutting length of 0.4 mm. However, be careful setting them up as too close a setting will result in cutting the scalp as well as the hair!
