As a barber you might be used to using mainly clippers to do your work. But back in the day, the tools that dominated a barber’s tool box were shears and a comb. This lost art is useful for longer haircuts. But in modern times, many guys wear their hair super short which eliminated the need for shear over comb. Clippers replaced the shear and comb.
