And overall, I love it! It’s definitely lived up to expectations. It’s a gorgeous looking design and the build quality is fantastic. It has a nice powerful motor which isn’t too loud, and you generally get a good sense of quality when you have this trimmer in your hand.
In terms of cut, it’s the best I’ve ever experienced from an electric clipper. The cut is extremely close and satisfactory by my standards. It’s not “razor close”, so don’t expect that, but it cuts down to about 1 day’s worth of growth. For the general speed and ease of use, that is fine by me. With the help of my wife, my head can be trimmed in about 5 minutes, so very quick.
If you’re wanting the skin close results that a razor blade can give you then the 8110 is may be not quite what you’re after, but then no electric razor can get quite that close. The upshot is the speed in which you can cut your hair, but also the lack of irritation. The 8110 glides over my head smoothly and comfortably.
The only thing I don’t like about the 8110 is that it would perhaps be better if it was cordless, or if the cable was at least a bit longer. This isn’t a big issue at all but something that would make it even better.
Here’s a summary of the Wahl 8110:
- Great build quality
- Powerful motor
- Quick and easy to use
- Great price
- The closest cut of all hair clippers
- No irritation
- Power cable could be longer
Overall, the 8110 is a top quality product at a great price. I’ve seen clippers for double the price of this and I don’t see how they can be better in terms of quality and general use. I’m highly impressed by what Wahl have produced here and definitely recommend these clippers.
