Our exclusive Phantom blade is designed to maximize sharpness and cutting life to ensure you get the most out of your clippers. It adjusts CLOSER than an Andis® blade right out of the package. No need to modify your Master® clippers in any way, this blade is prepared to cut a little closer than the standard Master® blade. It is not like a "Fade" blade. It is a standard Master® blade that goes a little closer to help you take the line out of your fades. It also has our unique black coating which prevents rust on the moving blade.
