Groom Master Professional Dog Grooming Scissors.
Scissors are essential tools for coat styling but, with so many different types to choose from, deciding which ones to buy can be difficult. In reality, if you’re aiming to tackle a variety of breeds, you’ll need a range of scissors in order to work efficiently. With this in mind, we’ve made the Groom Master scissor collection both essential and comprehensive. So, whether you’re creating cylindrical legs, enhancing angulation, mastering head styles or just thinning out the coat, we’ve made a scissor to do exactly that. These professional dog grooming scissors are popular with pet groomers of all skill levels, due to their cutting strength and durability. Forged from high-grade stainless steel to prolong their working life and protect against metal corrosion.
This starter set contains three scissors, including:
- A ‘safety’ scissor measuring 4.5″ (11.5cm) in length, designed for precision trimming around the face, muzzle, ears and feet. The ’rounded’ blade tips help prevent accidental injury, whilst working in confined or sensitive areas of the dogs anatomy.
- A ‘blending’ scissor measuring 6.5″ (16.5cm) in length, with 46 teeth, to separate the hair so that only intermittent sections are cut. In use, this scissor will remove around 45% of the hair (with each cut), helping create a smooth and more natural look. Use it to remove bulk from thick, heavy coat, blend between clipped and scissored areas and, correct unsightly stepped or choppy texture.
- A ‘grooming’ scissor measuring 7.5″ (19cm) in length, great for general grooming, removing bulk and creating shape.
- The micro-serrated blades make it suitable for cutting wet or dry hair simultaneously, helping to grip and control the hair (during cutting), creating cleaner lines and contours.
How do I use them?
The opposing grip handle style is very common in scissor design and, more frequently chosen by those who prefer holding scissors with their middle finger and thumb. This is common practice, influenced by our earliest experiences using blunt end scissors as a child. Once inserted through the rings, operate the scissor using just your thumb to smoothly open and close the cutting blades.
What else should I know?
For the best results, ensure the coat is clean and dry with all knots and tangles removed. Coat preparation before scissoring or clipping is essential, to avert mistakes and avoid damaging your equipment. Consider using a scissoring spray, to help create volume and structure in coat before you begin. This will help you attain sharper lines, smoother contours and a crisp finish.
