Check Out The Curves On This Shear!
Sometimes it's really difficult to see what a curved dog shear actually looks like from a straight-on product image if you've never seen one before. From straight-on images of curved shears (opened or closed), they sort of look like they are curved on the side like a saber or pirate's sword. They are, in fact, bent (curved) so that around the mid-section of both blades, an arch forms and presents the tips downward. Special thanks to our Ergonomic Plus shear for being willing to model for this photo shoot!
Curved Grooming Shears are really amazing to use for cutting along any curved surface plane on an animal (and there are lots!). If you have never used curved grooming shears, you will find that the weight and balance are exceptionally great (at least the ones we sell), and there is nothing clumsy to them at all. The curved shape provides diversity in scissoring options to groomers from both sides of the blade, whether you're following the hip, shoulders, or crest of a dog with one side, or using the opposite side to perfectly trim the hair from the inside of the back legs.
Curved Grooming Shears are especially fantastic for shaping the most roundest of paws with great ease, and they frequently pull off miracles when grooming Westie heads, Teddy Bear heads, bangs, top-knots, perfect tuck-ups, and shaping skirts. Sure. If you're good with a Straight Shear, you can pull off all of these tasks, but a curved dog shear will save you a lot of time on these jobs by usually getting a curved cut right on the first or second go. All professional groomers really should have a variety of shears in their arsenal, and a 7.0" to 8.0" Curved Shear is just about the perfect length for any Small, Medium, or Large Dog.
