Grooming Clipper Blades by Number
When purchasing a clipper blade, you will need to know the number of the blade you need. Different numbers have various functions as they cut the fur to different lengths. The higher the number means the shorter the blade. Most blade brands are interchangeable, so their blades will fit different clippers if needed.
Offering five blade numbers, 5-in-1 Adjustables bring value by allowing for easy adjustment in one tool. Instead of changing clippers to use a different blade, you simply slide the other blade into place. Save time and money by choosing the 5-in-1 Adjustable blade.
