Dog Stripping Knives
Our dog stripping knives are manufactured from high-quality materials to make the groomer’s job easier. The ergonomic handles provide a firm hold and help in pulling dead or loose hairs from the dog’s coat.
Dog stripping knives are grooming tools used by dog owners and professional groomers to maintain the coats of certain breeds that require hand-stripping or carding. Hand-stripping is a grooming technique used on wire-haired and some coarse-coated dog breeds like Terriers, Spaniels, and Schnauzers. The purpose of using a stripping knife is to remove dead or loose hair from the dog’s coat, which helps maintain its texture and appearance.
Dog Stripping knives are made in various shapes and sizes, but they generally consist of a handle and a blade. The common teeth of stripping knives are extra-fine, fine, medium, coarse, and face. The blade is typically serrated and is used to grasp and pull out the dead hair.
When using a dog stripping knife, it’s essential to be gentle and patient to avoid causing discomfort or harm to the dog. Stripping should be done in the direction of hair growth, and the process should be gradual to prevent pulling live hair. It’s a skill that may require some practice to master, and it’s often recommended to seek guidance from a professional groomer if you’re new to hand-stripping.
It’s important to choose the right type of stripping knife for your dog’s coat and to be aware of the specific grooming needs of your dog’s breed, as not all dogs require hand-stripping. Some breeds have coats that can be maintained through regular brushing and trimming.
