Andis Introduces New Ergonomic Grooming Shears

Sturtevant, WI (January 2015) – After a reliable set of clippers, the next essential tool in a groomer’s toolbox are the shears. Andis, an established leader in the pet-grooming category, has introduced five new grooming shears with ergonomic, offset handles to complete the professional pet groomer’s cutting and trimming needs.

Andis tools are designed and engineered to provide professional performance and comfort to both the groomer and animal. Groomers told us they wanted lightweight, balanced shears that were comfortable for all-day use,” says Bob Erler, national sales manager for the animal division.

The new Andis professional-grade shears are forged from top-quality Japanese stainless steel for exceptional durability, precision cutting and corrosion resistance. Ergonomic, offset handle designs accommodate the hand’s varied range of motion during cutting to achieve maximum comfort. The 6.25” and 8” straight shears weigh 1.9 and 3 ounces, respectively. The 6.5” curved ball-tip shear weighs 2 ounces and is ideal for tight spots, paws and face. The 2-ounce, 6.5” thinning shear has 28 teeth and the 3 ounce 8” curved shear is for shaping and contouring. Soft-grip finger inserts provide non-slip comfort and improved control. Each shear comes with oil to ensure ongoing high performance.

“As with clippers, shears need routine maintenance to keep them in top working order. Once a week, oil the pivot screw for smooth cutting movement, wipe any excess and never drop cutting tools or use them to cut anything besides hair or fur. Take care of your tools and they’ll take care of you,” says Erler.
