Instructions for use
What else should I know?
Whilst Wahl claim that their clippers are compatible with the blades and accessories of other brands, we generally recommend using Wahl’s own ‘Competition Series‘ blades only. These blades have been specifically designed for Wahl clippers and, as such, ensure the best performance and results. To ensure you get maximum working life from your blades, we suggest oiling them before use and, at regular intervals (during clipping) to control surface temperature. Failure to do so will cause blades to overheat, which will gradually dull the cutting edge making them drag through the coat, folding and pulling the hair. As such, it’s important to adopt a system of care for your blades to avoid the cost of more frequent resharpening and replacement.
