  • Heavy handed

    Why am I so heavy handed with my Kenchii 5 Star blenders. My sharpener needed to adjust my brand new shears after using it only a few times. He said I need to take it easy with the scissoring, even though I thought I was okay. I never ever had teeth of shears catching.....

    Probably your old thinners needed more pressure to cut, and you are used to that. It's muscle memory. You'll get acclimated to your new ones soon.
    Old groomers never die, they just go at a slower clip.

    Groom on!!!

      Thanks Karla, it's my first Kenchii blenders. I have only owned Geib before.

        Vein take more force to use I've found. My kenchii's are lighter and balanced better. You WILL get used to it but until then try using your Geibs for the roughing in and the kenchii for finishing.

          You should also work from the outside of the coat and work your way in with blenders. Think of it as trimming down in layers. If you go deep, you are forcing all the coat density into the teeth all at once. When I work mine, I'm constantly opening and closing and working it like a hedge trimmer.

            Again, the blenders are acting up , I was not heavy on it at all. I called the supplier and they will try to repair it. I'm just soooo frustrated ....

              I think you're right, but at the moment the teeth are catching again. I'm just not use to a finicky shears. My Black pearls are use to my abuse I guess... Lol.

                Karla that is right for me. I try to stay with the same model and brand a lot because I don't want to get used to new pairs new models.

                  What is your favourite brand if shears ? I do have Kenchii level 3 curved shears and I'm fine with them but not the blenders.

                    I disagree about heavy handed. It's called side pressure. They just don't fit your hand the way the others do (check the handles and hole placement and alignment). Watch how far in your is sliding. Stephen Toth did a video on side pressure. Some5imes someth8ng as simple as.a. ring or a thicker ring stops it from occuring.
