A specialized tool for the experienced groomer. Used primarily to thin, blend and shape wire coats. The distinctive "fish tailed" handle reduces twisting of the tool in the hand during use. The rounded corners of the blades and flats on the ends of all teeth reduce the chance of cuts and scrapes to the dog being groomed.
Use to remove coat - whether all (to start a new coat) or some (to shape an existing coat) Coat is always stripped in the same direction as the hair lays or points.
