If you’re an experienced barber or a newcomer to barbering, you know how much of a daunting task setting your blades can be. Whether it’s using a mirror or using plain old eye sight, there’s no real fool-proof way to set your blades. If you are off by a thousandth of an inch, the results can be nicks, scratches, cuts and even scabs. Which often can lead to a lost customer, or an unfavorable last impression to say the least.
At my shop, I’m usually the go to guy for setting blades, for several reasons. I obsess over my clippers being too sharp. I think cutting a customer is the barber equivalent of passing on a STD. Embarrassing.
So the idea of a blade setter gets me excited. Anivo, a hair product company out of Connecticut, claims to have the solution for setting blades. I came across the youtube video, and decided to research it. It seems like a functional and easy to use tool. They are made to set Styliners, Outliners, and T- outliner blades. At $24.99 they’re not a bad investment.
