When Katerina started grooming her very first miniature schnauzer in 1989, she had an old home made knife that she adored and lost somewhere. It looked like several she purchased, but they never had the same function. She wanted her old knife back and that started her on the journey developing striping knives. She decided to create the very old one - in a wood handle so it was comfortable and functional.
Since this was back in late 80s, the knife is kind of Retro and therefore we named it the RETRO EDITION.
We developed FINE and COARSE and they work miracles! They remove undercoat to the last hair, hand pre-dulled to avoid any cutting, they have great grip on the coat while pulling and they fit in hand so easily. Working with them is a real pleasure and you will never stop using them.
The COARSE has a wider tooth and works terrific as roller, and works well on Westies, Cairns, and Airedales. Perfect for thick, hard and abundant hair. It will also work well with curly hair, e.g. on some terriers.
The FINE is great for Miniature Schnauzers, Cockers, Afghans and any breed where precision is needed. But you will use them both more or less.
