Everything Shears

Saturday, March 12, 2022 11:00 am–12:00 pm German Suite

So you’re at a show and need new shears, but there are so many options! Straights, curves, convex edges, and bevel. What’s the difference anyway? Serrated, semi-convex, and titanium coated? Wait, what? Swivels should be held differently from non-swivel shears? Why are sharp shears safer than dull ones?
Straights, curved, chunkers, and thinners, swivels, and non-swivels, the options are seemingly endless, how’s a groomer to choose? Never fear, we’ll cover all of this and more, including basic shear anatomy, types of steel used, and how to care for your investment once you get it home. Whether you’re a self-identified shear hoarder, just starting your collection, or want a better understanding of our favorite tool, this class is for you!
