Cutting mixed/afro hair without a clippers/electric shaver?

Hey everyone, my boyfriend is studying abroad in Paris and is freaking out about cutting his hair. His clippers broke, and buying a new one will be expensive...getting a haircut/shave would probably cost just as much. It's about 1 maybe 1.5 cm long, and he claims there's no way to cut it other than using a clippers...is he exaggerating, or would some kind of 'a lot of shaving cream and a sitting down in the bathroom for a while with a razor' be a possible solution? I could do it for him...but he says it won't work without an amazing razor. To be honest, I don't know if he's tried it like that or any other way than his electric shaver/clippers method though or not in a long time, so that's why I ask. Any suggestions, as to how to shave back a centimeter or so of 'fro (half caucasian/black hair, fairly soft), or where to maybe order a cheaper clippers online than he can find at the first place in Paris he finds one? Or possible cheap/free haircut/barber places in Paris? Help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
