Features and benefits.
Without getting too technical, Mastercut dog clipper blades are made using high carbon steel. This helps make them stronger and, more wear resistant. Part of the manufacturing process includes rapidly cooling the steel to harden it and, therefore prolonging the cutting performance of the blade. Finally, the individual cutters receive a chrome plating to help prevent metal corrosion and, impart a smooth surface to improve feed. Mastercut clipper blades are high-precision ground to increase their cutting surface area by 25% (in comparison with rival brands). This helps improve the efficiency of the clipper, enabling it to cut faster and, achieve smoother and more even coat texture.
In brief, Mastercut blades are:
Precision Engineered: for faster, smoother cutting performance.
Ice Tempered: for maximum wear resistance and, extended working life.
Chrome Plated: to improve feed and, resist metal corrosion.
Universal Design: to fit rival brand clippers, including Andis, Oster and Heiniger
How do I use them?
Mastercut blades are designed to fit ‘detachable’ blade clippers. They’re compatible with a variety of brands including Andis, Heiniger, Oster and Wahl. To use, attach the blade to the clippers open ‘hinge assembly’ and, snap-it firmly shut whilst the clipper is running. When you need to swap blades, switch the clipper off and, depress the ‘latch’, which sits directly beneath the hinge. With the latch held in, open the hinge assembly by pressing firmly against the cutting edge of the blade. Mastercut blades come in a variety of sizes, intended to cut hair at different lengths. According to breed standard or style, several blades may be required to achieve the desired look. With so many different blades to choose from, the numbering system can get confusing. As such, always remember, the higher blade number, the shorter or closer it will cut. Example #30 (0.5mm), #7F (3.2mm), 4F (9.5mm).
What else should I know?
Over time, clipper blades can become blunt and struggle to cut hair properly. This usually happens when blades become excessively hot, through lack of lubrication, causing their sharp cutting edges to soften and become dull. If and when this happens, simply replace the blade or have it resharpened by a specialist service provider. To save money and reduce overheads, you can resharpen Mastercut clipper blades several times before they need replacing. It is usually more economical to resharpen existing blades than buy new. However, always check your elected sharpener has the right equipment.
A few final words of advice.
Like other precision cutting instruments, dog clipper blades demand suitable care and attention to keep them in good working order. As such, we recommend the following:
- Avoid using clipper blades on dirty or greasy coats. These can harbor fine particles and contaminates, which act just like abrasives and can quickly dull the cutting blade.
- To help create volume and structure in the coat, consider using a scissoring spray. This will help you attain a more uniform clipping height and improved coat texture.
- Always clean and oil your clipper blades after use and, consider storing them a protective sheath or wallet to avoid damaging your equipment.
