Hair clipper or trimmer blades age slowly, but they do get duller with time. You can’t stop that. Luckily, there are lots of affordable clipper and trimmer replacement blades.

Where things get a bit more complicated is finding out which replacement fits which models. You’ll see many posts around the web with consumers left confused and wondering.

Worry not! We’ve compiled this short guide with Andis and Wahl replacement blades. Pick your brand and check which blade you need for your clipper.

We’d say Wahl blades are the most confusing due to the sheer amount of models the brand has. It’s easier with Andis.

Wahl clipper replacement blades

Replacement blades for Wahl clippers come in two main types. They will either have two holes in them or you’ll notice you have a three-hole blade.

Among the two hole Wahl replacement blades, you have another two sets. #1045-100 blades fit more casual clippers like the home haircutting kits (Color Pro, Deluxe Pro etc.) #2191 blades are targeted at higher end models like the Seniors.

Replacement parts usually also include a small tube of clipper oil and screws.
