Mars Coat King


Recommended Posts

We just got our Mars Coat King from Groomersmall.com, we decided to get the #12 stripping tool as recommended by several in this group. Boy, does that work well. It got off the dead baby coat hair on Gus (7 months old) and Chase his older brother. It works very easy. Just glide it across hair always with the grain. Between the both of them, we got off 20 small balls of hair. They both now look great. Didn"t do the head or legs too much. Was recommended you wait until 2 years before that grooming. Also got the Classic 7" 30-Tooth Thinning Shears for fine trimming. Haven't used yet.

A great tool for any dog.

It's because cats simply can't be trusted for heavy lifting & dirty work required in the war on terrior.

Yes, it's a wonder tool. Got ours a few weeks ago and everybody keeps asking me if Saidi has lost weight :D Having some problems on her tail and legs but most of that is just her getting tired of it. I was very surprised that she does not mind it at all when I groom around her face and ears. Seems like that would be more of a problem than the legs and tail :confused:

When I bought the MCK close to 2 yrs ago, someone recommended the #16 for me. I'm wondering if there's a big difference. Also, does anyone know how long the blades last? Can they be sharpened or do you have to replace them?

I have the 16 blade - the best tool I own. Not sure, but I think you can purchase replacement blades. No cairn owner should be without this remarkable gadget !

I picked up a medium and fine based on this original post. What a wonderful grooming tool. Are these similar to a stripping knife? Pulled a significant amount of hair off of Herc. Would the Coat King replace regular grooming?
