    • Thinning shears

      I recently tried a friend/fellow groomers Kurod 3 thinners and couldn't believe how nice they were... I didn't want to spend almost $300 for a pair of thinners, but, am having a hard time finding anything else that smooth, that size, that I like as much.  I prefer thinners that are 7" or less, and that are very smooth and very sharp.  Any suggestions are welcome!

      I've not used them so I can't compare, but I will say I have been shocked with how much I like Aussie Dog shears. They are at every grooming show and they are cheap.  They have many different styles and designs. They hold an edge for a long time and for me, feel very balanced and nicely weighted. I just knew a shear at that price would be crappy, but I knew several groomers that loved them so I gave them a try. I'm glad I did!

      We are all so different in exactly how we hold our shears, where we put the pressure.  If you can get to a show, you'll have hundreds to try out to see which ones fit your hand and budget. :)

      thanks Barb- is that the brand of shears?   I'll look them up, however, I think I'm going to keep these Kurods because they are like butter and have such superior cutting ability- precise, etc- so far, I just haven't found a pair that compares.

      I agree with Barb that Aussie Dog shears are the best for the money. Initially, they only offered very short thinners, but then they came out with some longer ones, which I absolutely love. I also have some "4420" brand thinners that I got at a pet show and they're really great too, although a bit more expensive than Aussie shears. I once spent a lot of money on some Geib convex curved shears and I loved them, but they were so sensitive they constantly needed sharpening, so they weren't worth it. Thus, I just don't buy expensive shears anymore when there's less expensive shears that do a great job and hold up better.
