I bought these to replace a 10 year old Oster clipper set. The first time I used them I noticed right away that these were a far better quality of clipper than my old Oster. They feel solid, are very quiet and produced a great haircut. The folks at Beauty Appliance were great to deal with: when I noticed that the sealed bag of clipper guides included were missing the all important #1 (1/8") guide I emailed them. I got a prompt email apology and 2 days later the missing guide and more arrived via UPS. The price on Amazon (vendor is Beauty Appliance) is a steal! Check around on the internet and they are priced over twice as much on some websites. Highly recommend. If you need additional clipper comb guide sizes, Andis has a set of 7 ranging from 1/16" to 1" for about $12.00 that fit the Forfex, I found a set at Sally Beauty.

I have been a professional cosmetologist for 8 years and I purchased this same make and model (FX686) in 2003 and it still works. I was tired of bringing my equipment back and forth to work so I purchased another Forfex FX686 to use here at home and needless to say I am still impressed with the product.

I shave my own head at least once a week to keep it looking smooth and I usually use a 0 or 1 blade. After using a middle of the road clipper the last few years, I finally decided to take the plunge and buy a Professional grade clipper. The Babyliss Pro FX686 cuts through my hair like a hot knife through butter! This clipper is not as noisy as other brands I've owned but you can feel the power as it cuts. The ceramic blade adjusts from a 0 to a 1 (there are five possible lengths in between) and I like the fact that the adjustment lever locks into place so you can't accidently change it midway through cutting your hair. Four guide combs, a cleaning brush and oil are included in the box - overall this is a great product and if you can find it for less than $60 it's a steal!

I don't have these clippers but I see alot of people talk about the blades and guards for these clippers and there is a solution. Oster Fast Feed blades can be used with these clippers and vice versa. You can also use Andis guide combs with Oster clippers as well as these Forfex clippers. For those having blade and guide comb issues I would suggest doing this!!!!

I have noticed that everyone seems to be wanting to go ceramic with everything, why? It's not that "great". Everytime I have to cut hair with these things they keep catching and pulling. I have the older metal ones that still work so much better than the new "ceramic"
Forfex, stick with what works and dump the "ceramic" idea please.

These clippers have a good feel and they are heavy duty. Looks nice and you can tell they are quality built. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because it doesn't cut as good as I thought it would. I'm not sure if it is because of the ceramic blades or what? I find myself going over spots more than 3 or 4 times when I'm shaving my head.

I've used it just twice, but I'm very pleased so far. German craftsmanship at its legendary high level; instructions that assume you really want it to last. I've never used a clippers before, so I can't compare it to anything else, I'm just very happy with what I have.

I normally purchase this brand of clippers and have no problems.... However, this one that I got from amazon was no good. The clippers them self were extremly loud when I turned them on. I have had this brand and model before and they are normally very quiet. ( I am a professional stylist.) when I moved the lever to adjust the blade, it got even louder. The noise was so loud that the entire salon looked over at me because they sounded so bad. I figured instead of sending them back right away, I'd try and unscrew the blade and figure out why it was making so much noise. As stylist we do this often to either add a new clipper blade or align everything back up. I couldn't even unscrew the screws because they were in so tight. I had my boss and sales rep take a look and try to unscrew them, but it just made things worst. So needless to say I am out $60 because I couldn't use them. I won't ever purchase something like this again.
