I read that its good for “skimming” and what does that for dog grooming ?
Answer by princess_dragon_tears
In grooming, skimming is when you use the clippers almost like scissors. You skim the hair of the dog to get the shape and length you want with no scissor work required. It really does take a lot of practice, skill and a steady hand though. It’s also important if you’re using a blocking blade NOT to clip down to the skin. The teeth are way too wide and you run a high risk of cutting your dog if you aren’t professionally trained. For that I would recommend any #10 blade. What breed are you using this for anyway?
