Wahl Peanut Professional Clipper And Trimmer model 8685 Review
The Wahl Peanut Professional Clipper and Trimmer sets out to prove that good things really do come in small (and in this case peanut shaped) packages.
This little trimmer may be perfect for those who are tired of those battery operated trimmers that won’t hold a charge, or those larger trimmers that are simply too large to give a real professional looking trim.
The Wahl Peanut is great for:
- Quick touch up.
- Trimming most beards and mustaches.
- Around ears, nose, and lip areas.
The Not so Good
- Clipper doesn’t come with any attachments longer than 1/2”.
- Doesn’t work great on really thick hair due to its small size.

What you Should Know about the Peanut Professional Clipper and Trimmer
The main thing you should know about this grooming tool is that it’s simply not designed to be the only trimmer needed for every man.
While it does a great job for men who have thinner hair or want a shorter hair and beard trim, it really isn’t designed for men with thicker hair or who want to keep their beard and hair longer ½ inch.
However, even for these men, the peanut makes a great companion trimmer for keeping them well groomed around the ears, nose, mouth and neck.
