By Christopher Boscarino on June 17, 2009
Razors nick my head, so I use electric. I had been using a similarly priced Panasonic hair/beard/body trimmer without the guard to get that bald look. After a few months, the Pansonic (lightweight and plastic, rechargeable battery) was nearing the end of it's duty cycle. In fairness, it was doing way more shaving than Pansonic intended. I still needed a replacement.

The Wahl Balder cuts almost as close as a razor without the guard. It is exactly what I wanted. It is heavy, seems like it is built pretty tough and durable, and no nicks or cuts. Just use reasonable pressure and the right angle. Highly recommended.

Tip: If you are using an electric razor to shave your head for the first time, don't adjust the blades to go very close at first. After a few weeks, adjust them downward after your skin has had time to toughen up a bit.

I shave my head to the skin. I don't cut my hair, or do styling, or need anything fancy. To this end, one would think all shavers would be created equal; but they're not. Most shavers don't get close enough, or anywhere near close enough, for my taste.

This shaver, even with a guard on it, gets it close enough that for 90% of my days, I feel no need to break out a razor and go all the way down. This is a great time saver for me, and I hate wasting time on this kind of remedial task.

When I do use a razor and go all the way down, I use a Headblade Sport Ultimate Head Shave, 1 razor. It's a handle-blade combination that offers a shave contoured to the head to avoid cuts.

Anyway, this is a great head shaving device. I've used a lot of them, and this is the best I've ever come across.

I have a regular Wahl clipper, which worked OK, but since I'm balding on the top, I starting shaving my head, and when I knew about this "Balder Ultra Close" I thought I would get it. I finally got it and used it now, and I'll tell you what: it's not that 'As Close To Shaved Head' as other reviewer comment. It just works as good as the other regular Wahl clipper, maybe a little bit better since it's a new clipper (the other one I've had it for 3 years or so) but speaking of how close to the head it is the same result.

So it's OK, it's good device, but it doesn't cut that close to the head to be called a Balder Ultra Close.

Bought my first around 15 years ago from Sears, then my second just over a year ago when the original died. This puts all other clippers I've owned and used to shame. This clipper is durable, and gives almost razor like results. The newer version is definitely an improvement from what I purchased years ago.

My history with this guy is as follows -

Neighborhood unofficial barber (high school and college) - shaved heads, mohawks, creative ridiculous and almost embarrassing hairstyles

Personal grooming - I hate shaving so use this basically as a razor 80% of the time

2nd purchase - the clippers were dropped several times and the shears were broken and started to cut flesh so a replacement was needed. Having used and owned other clippers decided to go back with the wahl baldfader, again, the newer product is improved which says a lot.

I read a few reviews indicating the machine they got was used, if that's the case, contact AMAZON request a refund end of story. In my experience AMAZON's customer service is top notch, on the 2 instances I've needed refunds or new products been sent out there has never been an issue

Enjoy!

After reading several reviews on-line, I bought these clippers. I had been using a beard trimmer to shave my head and ended up doing more harm than good over the years, as the beard trimmer would nick and scratch my head. After using these clippers, I could NOT be more impressed. As one other reviewer mentioned, you get that 'next day' stubble feel. In other words, you get so close with these clippers that it feels like the day after having used a razor to shave your head - they're THAT good.

I also picked this kit up to use on my goatee, and it takes a little getting used to for your facial hair - not so much in that it hurts or anything, but you have to use the correct guide or you'll end up cutting it too short (like I did).

BUT, all in all, this is a great trimmer to use if you don't want to razor your head, and are happy with the "day after" feeling.

These clippers were suppose to be new but when it arrived it was used. I added a few images in the customer image section that explains how I knew they were used. Not sure if that is the fault of Amazon, the shipping method, or just faulty product from Wahl.

Now I've been shaving my own head with buzzers on and off (mostly on) for the last 15 years and have used all types and brands of buzzers and this one is just average. I felt it gave me a slightly uneven cut even with multiple passes. The motor is a bit weaker (I know I'm comparing a HOME KIT to a PROFESSIONAL KIT) compared to my Wahl 5 Star Series Balding Clipper (clippers that I would highly recommend), but it does get the job done - barely.

As far as the length of the cut with these clippers it was short but not short enough for my liking. From what I've gathered from Wahl customer service the blade that comes with this clipper is a 4x0 blade that cuts to .6mm. Now for a lot people that is a sufficient height, just not for me.

Another thing I didn't like was the case that this buzzer came in. The case has no compartments that are molded to fit the buzzer snugly. It is just an empty case that allows for everything in it to just slide around. Also, neither my original or replacement clipper came with a bottle of oil. I guess these don't come with it, even though there is a picture of a bottle of oil.

All in all, I would not use these clippers again or suggest these clippers to any of my friends.

On a side note: Amazon's customer service was FANTASTIC when I called them about receiving a used clipper. Within 3-4 minutes of talking with the helpful and courteous customer service representative she had already put in the order for my replacement clipper with free 2 day shipping.
