Summary: Same One the Barbers Use---Works Great!
How this came to me: Our family purchased this product with our own money for our family’s personal use.
After years of paying a barber to cut his hair, my husband gave in to the chidings of his brother and a friend to buy the same clipper used by barbers, the Oster Classic 76, to begin using it to cut his hair at home. The others have both trained themselves to cut their own hair. In our family, I have learned to cut my husband's hair.
We are saving money cutting hair at home instead of paying the barber’s fee plus tip and we feel this justifies the cost of this clipper over time. Actually a larger issue was finding the time in the schedule for my husband to go to the barber shop when they were open and when it jived with his schedule, which was getting difficult with my husband’s work hours. Also there is no sitting and waiting for the next available barber when you cut your own hair at home.
This is a professional device and is high quality. The way the clipper is designed is safe to use. More tricky is the Oster T-finisher tool, sold separately, because the T-finisher tool can cut the skin if not used properly. We use the Oster Classic 76 for the main cutting and clean up the sideburns, back, and back of the neck with the Oster T-Finisher.
Sometimes the Oster Classic 76 is sold in a combination pack with the Oster T-Finisher.
Read the package for which blades come with the Classic 76. My model number 76076-010 comes with a size 1 and size 000 blades. Other blades are sold separately.
After finding the manufacturer's full retail price online, we then shopped around locally and found the local retail stores including a 'discount hair supply store' were selling ABOVE the full retail price. We found the best price on Amazon.com so we bought it there.
We have been using this for about nine months.
