Letter Re: Manual Hair Clippers

I enjoy your blog very much, have been following it for years. Keep up the good work.
On the many lists of items preppers are encouraged to obtain, I have never seen hair clippers suggested.  An essential item.

JWR Replies: Although they are probably still made in India and China, the best place to find traditional clippers is used, via eBay or Craigslist. If they are well-made and aren’t rust-pitted, even a century-old pair of clippers will probably last another century. Just be sure to keep them well-oiled.
