  • What is the difference b/w Geib Gators and Entree?

    For my starting tools, I'm looking at Geib Gators and Entree.

    They look similar to me.
    What is the difference between them?

    Jodi Murphy recommends to use a German shears for the main cutting and a Japanese shears for the finishing.
    Gators and Entree are both convex (Japanese) right?

    So, what is the good German shears for entry level but not too cheap? (nor not too expensive)

    As for the length of the shears, I would feel more comfortable with shorter one.
    My school recommends 71/2 - 81/2'', but they seems to be huge.... so biggest I would buy for now will be 71/2'', maybe...

    I don't like to use really cheap ****** tools but considering that I'm very novice, I don't want to spend too much money on shears until I know my preferences are.
    Plus, I have to buy them on-line where I can't actually hold them in my hands.
    And of course, there are tons of other stuff that I have to purchase.

    This Forum is great because I can get all kinds of advice from real groomers with so much experience!
