The Beano is a British children's comic, published by D C Thomson & Co and is arguably their most successful. The comic first appeared on 30 July 1938 and was published weekly. During World War II, The Beano and The Dandy were published on alternating weeks because of paper and ink rationing. Supplies were fully restored shortly after the end of hostilities and weekly publication of The Beano and The Dandy resumed in 1949. In September 2009 the Beano's 3,500th issue was published.

It became a regular thing to trim hubby's hair with this handy tool.
We had one exactly like this in our house. We also had a black one in the shop out back. My youngest son tried to use it by sticking his fingers in the holes. We still have it. (Stored away)!
