Wahl Clipper has been pioneering precision clippers and quality barber tools since 1919. To commemorate the centennial anniversary of the company, Wahl Professional is releasing the 100 Year Clipper. With a nod of thanks to its loyal customers, the 100 Year Clipper is the company’s pledge to honor the past, look toward the future and never stop innovating.
A celebration of precision-made high-quality tools, in its design, it evokes the classic style of the first Wahl clippers coupled with the reliable cutting performance barbers and stylists expect. “This unit features timeless metal construction and feels like our original clippers but, with Wahl’s new cordless Li-Ion clipper technology,” said Steve Ardnt, senior product engineer.
Constructed with an all-metal housing and taper lever, this heavy-duty, high impact clipper packs in more than a vintage throw-back feel. The advanced rotary motor feeds consistent power to tackle thick hair without bogging down and the high-quality lithium-ion battery has a 70-minute run time, while cord/cordless capabilities ensure continuous cutting for the busy barber.
Wahl Professional’s purpose has always been to further the possibilities of the barber and stylist’s craft. From the beginning, company founder Leo J. Wahl prioritized working directly with barbers to improve the efficiency and convenience of Wahl Clippers, a practice that continues through today. “The 100 Year Clipper represents Wahl from 1919 to present. There is so much feeling evoked from the 100 Year Clipper: pride, joy dedication and longevity,” says Tracy Vock, senior product manager.
The 100 Year Clipper continues the strong commitment to innovation and professional-level tools that perform, and is a great addition to any barber’s tool belt.
