Default Shears: Master Grooming Tools or CC?

I'm looking to buy straight & curved shears for my mini.

I found these, curved & straight:

Or should I go with the clearance CC short shank 7":

Thoughts on Andis UltraEdge 2?

Thanks.

I haven't a clue but hopefully someone in the know will post soon. Thought I would bump this up. It looks like Lula has great hair for you to work with. I think people will probably tell you see what fits your hand well. It is a very individual thing.

Thanks.

I have a 10" set of the original CC.....I HATE them and according to the CC rep at intergroom, I am not the only one. I used them twice and now they sit in a box on the shelf. CC was kind enough to sell me the Jasmine buy one get one along with a free brush. The 9" are never used but I use the 7" straights all the time and they are fairly inexpensive. I find myself reaching for these instead of of my more expensive shears.

As far as the Master Grooming, I bought a pair of thinners many years ago that were junk....weather or not they have improved I don't know. I had to give them away to a client who just uses them to get out mats in between groomings.

My favorite are the Geib shears and Kenchii shears but you need to go to a show, put them in your hand and see what feels the best to you. Or purchase them from a reliable source that will let you return them. If you are just starting out, kenchii makes a scorpion shear that is very inexpensive...this is the shear many grooming schools give beginners.

Another brand that I LOVE is Sensei, my son is a hairdresser and has a swivel thumb (hairdressing collection) that is great. I bought a pair of 9 or 10" curves from the grooming collection that I use frequently on the standard top knots.

I know a standard show groomer that buys the cheapest shears (three for 100) at shows and does the most outstanding job scissoring. When they are dull they toss them. I prefer a higher quality metal in the better shears that I can get sharpened when needed.

I have heard great things about element shears from groomers and they are very inexpensive:

I hope this helps.

I personally would goo with clearance CC shears but I don't have any since they din' fit my hands. If you are just looking for shears to groom your own dog then set a budget first & go from there. I have for day to day client grooming Heritage, Davis, Ryan's, Onyx & Beauty shears from Lexon & Blue Ribbon. Shear price range from $60-125.

For my own competition Poodles Kamisori shears from the Beauty line 3 of them now & love them, Eric Salas shears sold through Kenchii or if at a trade show I got a great deal of 1/2 off. Shears normally priced from $250-580. But I have gotten GREAT deals on all of these shears & have not paid over $150.00 If you are patient there are great deals out there.


Also if on FB then check out Barter Pet Groomer. Kenchii brand new shears, clippers, used shears for a great deal. I bought my Sharkfin thinners on there for a steal. That would be 1 of my first places to look. Also if you like smaller shears then check out Beauty lines. I think it is Scissor Mall that has distributors throughout the US, check to see if anyone is near you to try out shears.

Ive never seen anyone write anything good about Master Grooming Tools. I got a Master Grooming table, and am happy with it so far, but have avoided their shears, etc.

Default Shears: Master Grooming Tools or CC?

I went with the CC clearance shears, for now.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone.

I'm sure I'll be upgrading if need be.

I'm loving learning to groom Lula!
