Extremely precise edging
The Wahl 8779 has wonderful feel in the hand, in any orientation (cutting side up, down, right or left. It is true that in shaving across an area of skin, the closest cut obtainable does leave very short stubble (I estimate about 0.2 mm). However, it seems to me that if it was designed to cut any closer, pinching or nicking would become a problem - after three weeks of use Iā€™ve not had a single occurrence of pinching or nicking. Also, the 8779 is specifically designed to be an edging tool, not a face shaver.
ProsSuper precise and accurate edging
Effective and comfortable in all orientations
No nicking or pinching at all
Appears to be very well made
ConsI?ve found none so far
