The Schnauzer Forum

It's all about our lovely, bearded Schnauzers and their carers.

Thinning Scissors

Grooming is an important part of looking after your Schnauzer. Regular grooming will help keep your Schnauzer healthy and comfortable and you will spot potential problems early. Whether you decide to clip or strip your Schnauzer, help is on hand. Schnauzers are generally a non-shedding breed and will require a fair amount of grooming to get rid of dead hair.

Thinning Scissors

Postby Sianny » 07 Apr 2011, 17:07

I need some!

When I clip Ralphy I need something to blend in his legs and etc and all I have are Mikki thinning scissors and they are absolutely shocking quality. They pull on his hair and are blunt.

I've provided a link and sorted the price from low to high for you guys. Personally I seem to have gone for Roseline upon recommendations and have found them excellent for my pet needs.

Which one would you buy if you were me? Which ones do you use?

I'm getting decent scissors for my birthday, but it's hard finding them for lefties, lol! So am loving this thread idea!

I took this for another part of the grooming thread!

My thinners are over 20 years old, double sided ones

ha ha yes Jo i am building up quite a collection of stripping knives, I am currently trying to get a hold of the knife by eric sellers/sallers (sp) which my friend has and i find brill for carding and for heads...anyway this is for thinning shears..... i have roseline single sided but i am too impatient for thinners on the whole so i really love my razor groom chunkers but i do have to be careful to not go made, its one cut and look not like with thinners! lol

use the double sided ones, they take more coat with each cut!

Dannie, would you recommend the chunkers? I've been looking at texturisers, Groomers doesn't have a good range, should I be looking at Dezynadog or HUB? I'd rather buy texturisers than thinners as I already have some Wahl ones that are, tbf, crappy but work ok for me.

I'm a roselines fan too. I like their single sided thinners. Got a different make first an just couldn't get on with them so got me some Roselines now. Much better!
