I like the look of the Wahl clippers but they seem to have a maximum hair length of less than 4mm which is a bit too gnarly for my liking. Also, they cost a bit. I only get about four or five haircuts a year at the hands of my Iraqi crimper and they cost a mere £9 plus tip. The teenage son of a neighbour tried some DIY clippers. Maybe I could borrow his, or is that like asking to borrow somebody's toothbrush? I don't know the protocol.
