Based on reviews mentioning eyes, it's not going to cut that close. At least one said they use the round tip scissors "Scaredy Cut Tiny Trim" scissors for the face to get close there. The shortest comb length seems to be 1/2 inch. Otherwise these look like they could do for your boy's body.I just looked at these. How short would they be able to cut? Would it be as short as a 10 blade?
They all seem to come with attachment combs for a longer cut and probably weigh about the same as the scissors but if you're not comfortable with the idea, then it's not the right choice for you.I am very hesitant about the mini's they apparently are 30, or in one case 40. Groomers have always used 10 blades on his face and feet because he is so sensitive. He is also white. Also, I have never used a clipper and have arthritis.
This is the scaredy mentioned above in other post. Still don't know the closest cut comparison to regular blades.This is the comb with blade plus the tiny scissors
