Wahl 9916-1117 Groomsman Rechargeable Trimmer Set UK Review 2020

Wahl  describe themselves as the brand of professionals but they do produce a low cost range as well as the more up market clippers. These Groomsman cordless clipper far into the entry level category but they are far and away one of the very best sellers in the full range.

 At around £15 or so and averaging 3.9 out of 5 in the ratings , we are not totally sure why they are so popular a seller.

This clipper is a cordless model that comes as a basic entry level clipper kit. Its not really designed to do full hair cuts but is ideal for a quick trim up.

It also comes as a complete starter kit with 3 combs that will cut from 0.5mm up to 13mm.

Wahl Groomsman Rechargeable Trimmer Features

  • Cordless hair clipper that's ideal for beards and facial hair
  • High carbon Stainless steel blades
  • Up to 60 mins use from a full charge
  • Cuts from 0.5mm to 13mm

This clipper is mid rated but is extremely cheap so don't be expecting anything too special.  It certainly is basic but will do a job without hurting your pocket too much. 

As you know the blades on clippers come in a variety of materials ranging from stainless steel right up to titanium and Japanese steel and this clipper comes with high carbon steel blades which tend to stay sharper for longer. Quite good for a clipper at this price.

A little bit about the Wahl brand

As i have already said, Leo Wahl was the first to invent an electromagnetic hair clipper in 1919 and so the Wahl company began. They were the first to invent many other things such as the vacuum clipper in 1965 and the cordless clipper in 1967.

Wahl products are now available in around 150 countries worldwide under the brands Wahl, Moser, Lister and more recently Groom Ease, with factories in USA, Germany, China and in England.

Certainly the Wahl products are still the choice of the professionals so you can be sure of a quality product.
