    Question Manual hair clippers..

    So curious.....I like to keep what little hair I have left on my melon very close,but I don't like to skin it.In the interst of being green with a straight razor and all,I was wondering.Has anybody out there used manual hair clippers and are they any good ? Also,where might I find some ? I'm looking for a modern day manufacturer. If there is one out there, I need some good feedback.

    I have an old one. It still works perfectly fine. I have no idea if they are still made but you probably can find an old one online.

    Have you checked the ones at Amazon.com?

    Funny post.

    It's like someone who uses a Gillette proglide asking if a straight razor is any good.

    Barbers used manual clippers exclusively for probably more time than they have used electric. When I was a kid most older barbers used them and the electrics were recently out and the younger guys were starting to use them.

    I have a pair of Dorko Clippers I got NOS and they work great.

    They coime up now and then on Eboy.

    Just came from one of the antique stores in town and saw a few there that looked like they were in fair shape.

    I figure my electric ones get used infrequently enough, for such a short amount of time, and draw little enough current that I'd never worry about them not being green.

    I see them at antique stores all the time. They seem like they would work well but I don't know. They're not to high priced either.

    The Bressant looks just like my old one, only shiny. It should work just fine!

    Thanks for asking this question Nightblade. I was actually doing a search for manual hair clippers a month or so back. I own a set of electric clippers that I use one every year or two. Pure laziness on my part. I like short hair but only cut once in a blue moon, I inevitably end up with a pony tail that ends up being harder to mow down. I was thinking along the same lines as you too I would say.
