I would especially love the opinions of those who show. Which brands of brushes, shears, clippers, etc do you prefer? I've heard Kenchii and Geib are good brands for shears, Chris Christiensen and Les Pooch are the best brushes. Any opinions?

I honestly get cheap stuff that works, lol. My thinning shears I got at a human beauty supple for $14, works like a charm and easy to replace.

When it comes to grooming equipment price denotes quality. Now for us pro groomers we need stuff to last thru many months and dogs. So we use the brands you list. But for the one or two dog owners I think it might be a bit much Unless you are having certain conditions where they would help out. So here is a list to look into.

Geib plain gators not the supers. If you go to thier site there is a list of all his scissors. Monks are good also and not too bad on the pocket. Andis clippers are the only ones to get as they have virtually no maintaince and stay cool. There is a price range so get what you can aford.

You need a poodle comb. These have wide teeth and are in the greyhound comb family. Petedge sells a couple of nice ones. I use the blue aluminan myself for doing poodles. For brushes ones must be carefule as most sold in store will rip and scratch skin. Chris Christiensen is the best for every poodle owner as tips are ground smooth and they are anti static. They will keep a poodles coat in better shape than any other out there. The dogs love them too since they do not stratch. You only need one or two at most so even though they are up there in price they last. I rather buy one bush for the life of my pet than one every year.

Do you have a specific CC brush you like? I want a "t pin" brush mainly for my Maltese, but would it work on a spoo?

For pin brush, I have an Ashley Craig 27 mm brush that I love. Here's the link:

I also like the Chris Christensen 35 mm pin brush for longer coats. Here's the link:http://www.showdogstore.com/chris-christensen-brushes-35mm-oval-pin-brush.asp

Combs: for the last few years I've successfully used Chris Christensen Poodle comb and love it. Here's the link:

Just recently I've splurged on a new comb and it's the best poodle comb I've ever had, although Christ Christensen doesn't advertise it as such. The teeth are longer and they are spaced further apart. I absolutely love it!!! Here's the link:

These combs and brushes might be expensive, but they are worth it as they last. I have the old original greyhound comb that I bought 14 years ago for my persian at a cat show. This comb still looks new. :)
