I was wondering if anyone uses this brand or knows anything about them. They have a lifetime warranty and a lifetime free sharpening warranty. They are on the pricey side. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I haven't used them personaly though I've seen them for sale at a couple of shows. They felt nice and smooth and they are moderate in weight from what I remember. Not real heavy. That is the extent of my expereince with them though.
I would say that if you are just begining to groom I wouldn't spend the money of such expensive shears just yet. Better to learn on a pair that won't break your heart if you drop them or knock them off something, or when you send them for sharpening with a person or place you don't know well and they ruin them it won't kill you. I spent 200 dollars are one of my first pairs of shears and damn if the very first time I had them sharpened the sharpener ruined them. I didn't even know it at the time because I was to inexperienced to tell but they never worked the same since. I hadn't used them in over a year and last month took them to a show to be sharpened by a friend of mine. I asked him why they felt funny when I tried to use them the week before. He refused to work on them, said they were so off balance the only thing he could do with them to fix it might very well ruin them entirely. It's a shame The same lady who messed up that pair also ruined for life a pair of 44/20's which, until I had them sharpened were AWSOME thinning shears. Never have worked since and they can't be fixed, she took sooo much off the tip that they don't even close all the way at the ends Those were 100.00 bucks.
If you're not just starting out though and you don't have any of the worries above and have a great sharpener or will be sending them to C.C. or whoever they reccomend for sharpening then I'd say go for it. I'd love to know how great they are
Ohh me too, I would love to know what you think if you get them. I just bought a 9" Roseline straights which are lovely. I bought the ones with holes along the blades cause I thought this would make them lighter, and if the truth be told they looked cool too :rofl: and they are light but feel like they have some substance to them and very smooth to use.
First up I bought the cheaper Wahl brand in 5.5" straight and curved and since buying the more expensive scissor the Wahls just feel thin and tinny, and yet I have been using them with no problems up till now! Will have to go on using them for the SWF I do as I find the 9" still too big for me, not enough experience just yet.
I have been looking at the Jaguars too, so any input on those welcome also. In fact perhaps if anyone would like to share what brand they use that they like or what to steer clear of that'd be appreciate by me and probably by Yorkiecrazy and others as well :smile:
Thank you, WonderPup, for sharing with me your opinion on the c.c shears. Also, thank you for sharing with me your experiences with having shears sharpened. That really is heartbreaking to lose such an expensive pair of shears. That's 300 dollars you lost in all. I think I would have shot myself:shot: lol
I have been grooming for years. I need a 10 inch pair of shears and I don't want to wait for the next close dog show. You have helped me out a lot.
