Frequently Asked Questions About Barber Blades

1. Which hair clipper gives the closest cut?

If you’re looking for a hair clipper offering a closer cut, go for Wahl’s Senior Cordless or the Magic Clip cordless clipper. The Senior Cordless clipper is equipped with a 5 Star Standard Blade with a flat profile – which makes it the ideal for situations when you need to cut closer to the scalp. The Senior Cordless is Wahl’s most powerful cordless clipper at a whopping 7,000 strokes per minute. It’s also designed for precision fading on the scalp and will grant you surgical-like precision, at 0.5mm to 1.2mm to the scalp. The cordless Magic Clip clipper, on the other hand, is fitted with a Five Star Stagger Tooth Blade and runs on a rotary motor of 5,500rpm. It is also favoured by barbers for texturising work, as its patented technology creates two cutting paths with every pass. This makes Wahl’s patented Five Star Stagger Tooth Blade ideal for creating textures and blending. Like the Senior Cordless, it’s excellent for close cutting and will allow for cutting 0.5 to 1.2mm to the scalp.

2. What blades do barbers use?

Barbers use a range of blades to give customers their desired hairstyle. Different blades are used to achieve different results. The curvature of taper blades on the Super Taper Cordless, for example, allow for barbers to use a C-Stroke motion to do bulk removal and tapering. Sometimes, barbers will choose a particular type of blade based on what works best for a particular customer’s hair type.

You might have heard of our T-Wide blades, which you can find on our 5 Star Detailer T-Wide Corded and our 5 Star Detailer Li - Cordless trimmers. The extra wide T-shaped blade grants you the ability to get to those hard-to-reach areas. The edge of the blade is also used to create mesmerising hair tattoos. Barbers also have the option of adjusting the blade for hair cuts that demand ultra close cutting with zero overlap, such as the eye-catching hair tattoos replete with the most minute of details.
