    Default my wife cuts my hair with dog clippers

    don't laugh. we bought an oyster golden A5 clipper(for dogs)at an antique store. it was like new with 2 clipper heads. there is no plastic guard as each head (two piece) cuts to a precise height. we use the 1/8 in head as she gives me a buzz. the blades are extremely sharp and cut quickly. the motor is very quiet and replacement parts are available. it is far superior to any clippers that i have ever bought for human hair. cost new about $130-140.

    when she is done, i usually sit and shake hands!

    The Oster's were the clippers Professional Barbers used for years, my father still uses his and they are over 40yrs old. well oiled and work like new. No one bought the cheap crap then, It couldn't be sterilized in the shop

    at least those aren't wool shears... in well trained hands they won't hurt, but boy do they look vicious...

    I've cut my own hair since 1994 with set of Oster dog clippers. I bought them originally for my dog at the time (border colliexgerman shepherd) that would get mats fairly easily. One day while brushing my teeth I noticed how badly my hair was receding. So out came the clippers and I buzzed it all off, then the Bic razor took it down to skin level. Bald is good. 45 second showers can be handy.
    I seem to have misplaced my occipital lobe, and as such cannot search for it. Do you see my dilemma?

    I found our old Wahl pet clippers out in the garage the other day. Cleaned and oiled it, bought a set of guards, and had my wife cut my hair. Worked great!

    Couldn't it cut your ears or nostrils, due to having wider spaced teeth than a human hair clipper?

    The spacing is the same where it counts. The outer teeth are wider on some of the blades but not where the cutting is done.

    Be careful the wider spacing will make it very easy to catch skin (ears etc.)

    Only thing that matters is that the haircuts look good.
