These used to be best gifts of industrial revolution - now you could do your home barbering without scissors! Works without electricity and comes with that communist touch of 'I don't care'.

These are very handy if you are in need of cutting hair of rowdy children, military personnel or political prisoners. They might not have the luxury options of their Western counterparts like height adjustment, but they do cut hair and it takes will to do skin damage while barbering. For that classic Soviet military almost-bald look, look no further.

They have one big wing nut to separate the blades for cleaning. No other functionality except of course the hair cutting.

Genuine Soviet stuff

These come in the remains of the original box, which has taken some storage damage. The cutters are steel and unused. Most have a leaflet in some Soviet language describing the use, or perhaps listing reasons to inform your family members to the KGB.

i´m very sad from my purchase of this product. it came with the mecanics covered in moscoline so i set about cleaning it up, but right after the central nut wich acts as the strong point broke. the nut looks made out of a different material than the rest of the hairclipper. i´ll try to stick it but i think welding it is the only option.
So sad i can´t start up a gulag with friends :(

I've had a good experience with these clippers - they are slow, but they work.
Prepare to get a hand workout when using them. That being said, I most often use them for quick trimming of my beard when I don't want to dig out & plug in my electric trimmers. These do leave the hair a bit longer than standard clippers; maybe a bit less than a #1 guard, or approximately 0.100inches / 2.5mm. As mentioned, these are not adjustable in height; and my existing guards do not fit with this model. Maybe someone can find guards to fit, or make some with a 3D printer.
These are decidedly for right-handed use, and can get awkward when using on yourself. I expect they would work much better when used on someone else.

All that being said, I'm quite happy with my purchase.

Rated a Star and a Sickle.

Here are the directions in English as translated by Google:

INSTRUCTION for using a clipper

Hair Plant "Moscow Metalworker"

1. Clean the non-used machine from anti-corrosion grease, rub the surfaces of the combs and the spring lightly with liquid oil,
2. Cut against the hair, by frequently squeezing the levers with the subsequent release of the movable lever and simultaneously moving the machine forward.
3. Adjust the screw lamb so that the hair does not crease between the combs when cutting, but also do not create excessive friction of the combs.
4. The return spring is regulated by a stopper until the combs are returned in motion with as little spring tension as possible.
5. Periodically lubricate and clean the machine.
6. To avoid damage, handle the machine carefully.
7. The warranty period of the machine (during normal operation) is one year from the date of its purchase in the store.

Tested by OTK Polygraph-ka L. 1, 3. 1220, t. 300 000

My question is, since some hair was still left on the child, where do I take it for warranty coverage?
