Veterinary practice: – suitable for surgical and laboratory work.
Cattle: – will give a very close finish and is used for trimming dairy cattle udders, or preparing the show “top-lines” Used for freeze branding preparation.
Charollias sheep: – show trimming of heads to remove small areas of both hair and wool, also for cleaning legs for show purposes.
Horses: – The size #40 blade is recommended for work involving the hogging of most breeds horses and polo ponies. This blade will also perform well on most horses legs and especially the feathers, although in the case of the lower parts of the legs and the feathers you may have to resort to attaching an attachment comb as a pure #40 blades will clip very close – indeed too close. However add a 1/16 or 1/4 -inch attachment comb and this will give you a desired covering of hair.
A word of advice! Working with attachment combs does require that the areas to be clipped are thoroughly groomed and cleaned.
Dog grooming: – when used by a competent groomer/experienced exhibitor it produces a quality show finish (very close) on the face, feet or tails of a Poodle with excellent skin and coat qualities.
Very useful blade for preparing the underbelly of a pregnant bitch just before delivery, the blade is used to skim the area clean providing the skin underneath has no abrasions. Useful blade when used on a number of mixed breeds. Dogs should be well groomed out before clipped.
A range of attachment combs to give greater cutting depth if desired can be fitted to this blade.
