So I invested 15 in a wahl clipper and I was deeply disapointed with how short it cuts compared to my last one.

I just want to know which clippers have got the shortest zero cut? I hope you understand what I mean, I just want a clipper that gets as close to a razor shaved length as possible.

Thank you!

Okay I'm going to do it, I've bought a razor/cream/moisturizer from Amazon all for under 20. So they should come around Saturday/Monday so once they come I'll get down to it. Thanks for replies even though neither of you acutely recommended a set of clippers!  Grin

I think I'm more excited than scared, I mean I'm used to have a zero buzz cut for past 4 years but their is a big difference between a razor cut and a clipper cut and I just hope my head doesnt get too cold during this winter!  Azn Yes I'll be sure to tell you how it goes, thanks.

Congrads on taking the plunge.

I have had best results using a razor, I have use the Gillette Mach 3 and the Gillette Fusion. I have laso tried the headblade which is a good raxor but takes some time to get used to.

I have a Wahl balding electric razor which I have tried as well as a con-air clean head shaver.

I truly prefer a regular razor with shaving cream etc.

Hope that You enjoy your new sly look.

I'd like to jump in here. Nobody has really answered the original question.  Which clipper clips to the shortest length.

I bring this up for a reason.  Last night, I met some friends at a restaurant. A mom and dad, their daughter and her boyfriend. The boyfriend looked shaved bald ... but as I talked, he said, no, this was just clippers. I really want to shave bald or find a barber who will do a razor cut.  Well, the barber across the street does them! So I gave the reference. (thank you, he said). I could not talk too long, but I was really curious, which clipper he's using to cut that close.  With my wahl, when I clip to no guard, I don't look that short.  Maybe I need to adjust the blades on my clipper. Maybe different clippers had different minimum lengths. I think this was the original question.

I'll agree with the current discussion ... why not just shave and be done with it.  But along the way, or perhaps if your blades are all worn down and you want a very close buzz ... which clipper would do the best job? Which would be closest to sly?

I think that was the question. So, let's discuss.

He didn't. I did not have time to ask that question.  We were with OUR group and they THEIRS and I did not want to monopolize the conversation. We only had a few minutes to chat while waiting for tables.

Now, I did google and found this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFukQ6W54PY

The barber mentions using a #000 clipper and www.andis.com. Looks like they make professional clippers .... and lots of blade choices in various guages.  Wahl also seem to have some 'trimmer' blades which might be shorter than their standard clipper blades. Maybe that's the answer. But it looked like some of their trimmer blades only fit some clippers, not all.

The Andis looks like a quality machine and with the "00000" should be pretty close. I'd say .1mm is very close, whatcha think?

Not that I was looking for much for Christmas, but my cousin surprised me with a set of Andis clippers just like in the barbershop! I was excited because this is a good alternative for the next couple of weeks until I can use the razor again! Most importantly, I can trim my own facial hair...looks like my barber may be out of a job this coming year....
