What we found so wonderful about the Asahi Grooming Chunker is its quality for the price: it's a premium, well-built dog shear that is easily on par with any Level 3 Kenchii shear. Where a Kenchii of this caliber starts at $160+ in cost, we can offer the Asahi for under $100, but it will easily be one of the best grooming shears in your arsenal.
Asahi is available in two popular sizes: the 7.0" or 7.5" - both coming with 24 razor sharp teeth. For small to medium size dogs, the 7.0" is an ideal size, and the 7.5" is better suited for grooming medium to large size dogs. The handle's off set rings and ball bearing tension screw provide incredibly smooth opening and closing motion that reduces hand fatigue. The subtle ergonomic bend in the handle stem and solid finger rest aids in maintaining the proper positioning of the wrist, and overall, proper posture for scissoring. This Chunker really feels great to use: it's well balanced, light, and cuts quickly and dependably with ease.
Asahi is constructed from high carbon Japanese 440C stainless steel set with a razor sharp, durable, long lasting convex edge. The manufacture is absolutely amazing and one of our favorites. The quality and precision involved in fabricating this shear is top-notch, and it delivers in performance, longevity, and cost. This is a Chunker worth investing in.
