The YOSHI is made of finest Japanese cobalt steel, very lightweight and very smooth. Groomers can cut all day long and the hand doesn't get too tired compared to classic finishing scissors. This scissor is for the final finish, after the shape has been blocked out and the bulk has been removed with the appropriate scissor for Blocking. Excellent preparation is a must for a good finish. Ideal use for this amazing scissor is on fine to medium coats such as Bedlington Terriers, finer coated Poodles especially some of the Whites, Creams, Apricots and Silvers. Will work well on fine puppy coats! Perfect for Maltese Terriers and soft silky coats that also are difficult to finish without marking. Perfect for competition and show work for discerning groomer who likes a light weight scissor.
