The hairdresser uses these clippers to thin or trim hair.
The clippers combine the comb and the razor knife in one instrument. The handle is elongated (approx. 13 cm) and is made of wood, iron, aluminum or plastic. The razor blade is clamped in a holder consisting of two metal plates, at least one of which is comb-shaped. Handle and holder consist of a whole or are assembled. Sometimes the holder hinges open or is unscrewed so that a replaceable razor blade can be clamped in.
In another model, the holder is square and completely made of plastic. In that case, two razor blades are clamped in the holder on either side.
