For a month, I kept thinking about how cool it would be to write about the Wahl Model 79467 Clipper Self-Cut Kit. How it would cut down on my time and effort between haircuts and help avoid razor burn. What a great idea.

Fast forward just over a month and I'm sitting here with my second bad haircut of the week – a good trim, but bad because I didn't follow up with a razor. My wife is saying I can't use my Wahl kit until I shave off a beard I can't shave off.

So, what went wrong? I think this product just wasn't quite ready for the US market. I really do think it's going to be a great tool for anyone who's face is going to be shown. Why? Because it's a super easy way to trim your hair into lines, which means no razor burns and you can keep your beard super short all while being able to hit each line with a single pass.

It also comes in at a nice compact size and can handle all manner of trimming. However, the reason I don't think it's ready to make its way into an American's home is the lack of adjustment options.

If you're going to have someone else trim your beard or hair, chances are it's going to be the same person each time so you're pretty much stuck with their blade setting if you want a really high-quality trim.

You have to watch your settings carefully with this tool as you don't want to clip it too short and screw up the timing and then, even worse, only have one setting to clip into. The other two settings are optional to taper and detail.

If you can work around this, this is the ultimate in really cool kit for a super high-quality trim. It's efficient, quick, and easy.
