This Wahl Clipper comes equipped with a “Taper Lever” which can be used in conjunction with or without a guide comb. Use of the taper lever allows you to effect minute but precise adjustments to your desired length of cut.
This is especially helpful to achieve a tapered look for necklines, fades or blending between sections.
