Buy great quality pet grooming scissors from The Clipper Shop
When it comes to giving your dog a haircut nothing is more important than a great quality pair of pet grooming scissors.
Pet grooming scissors come in a variety of styles and knowing which one to choose can often be a challenge.
The first thing to ask yourself when selecting a pair of dog grooming scissors is: "What am I trying to achieve?" Sounds obvious right? The answer is sometimes not as straightforward as you might think.
When choosing a great quality pair of pet grooming scissors, you will need to keep in mind that there are 3 basic types: Straight, curved and thinners (sometimes also referred to as blending scissors which we'll discuss further below) Each type of pet grooming scissor fulfils a specific purpose.
Straight Pet Grooming Scissors
Straight pet grooming scissors are normally used for the majority of basic tasks from ensuring a straight cut fringe or beard to tidying up paw pads to ensuring a nice long consistent cut down the length of a leg. The resultant cut is, as the name suggests, straight. Straight pet grooming scissors come in a variety of blade lengths, blade widths and blade styles. As a loose rule of thumb, it might be sufficient to say that longer length scissors are more helpful when scissoring along the longer parts of a dog, for example, down the length of long legs or along the length of a dog's skirt. Shorter length pet grooming scissors on the other hand are often used when more manouverability is required, especially in and around those tricky and hard to reach places.
Curved Pet Grooming Scissors
Curved pet grooming scissors are designed, as you might have already guessed, to leave a curved line in your pets coat. The benefit of curved pet grooming scissors is that they can be used to shape around the curved or rounded areas of your dog such as the head and shoulders. In today's world of evolving pet grooming techniques you may consider buying a pair of super curved pet grooming scissors which can help you even more when trying out the fancy art of pet styling called "Asian Fusion". For the average pet groomer, however, curved scissors need not have a very aggressive curve and consideration should be focussed more on the overall length of the pet grooming scissor and what suits your style of scissoring as well as budget.
Thinning Pet Grooming Scissors
Thinning pet grooming scissors are often also called Blending Scissors. While they may mean the same thing to many people they do have their differences and are used for different purposes. Another popular style of scissor is the Chunker, once again related to blenders and thinners however designed to produce a different result. Sound confusing? Well hopefully the following information helps:
The Difference Between Thinners, Blenders and Chunkers
Thinners or double sided thinning scissors are used to thin thick hair with a cut normally made close to the skin, or can be used near the hair ends for a more natural look.
Then there are blenders/single sided thinning scissors which are mostly used for finishing a pet groom to blend away and soften straight lines.
Chunkers, on the other hand, are used to finish or texturise a cut, and are also ideal for going over any scissor work to remove scissor marks.
Thinning or double sided thinning scissors normally have teeth on both sides of the blades and blenders or single sided thinning scissors have teeth on only one side of the blade.
Chunkers also have teeth on only one side of the blade, but the teeth are normally larger and wider apart.
