  • Coat King Strippers

    I just purchased a set of Mars Coat King strippers so I can start hand stripping.
    My question is can you or do you use these tools for any other processes besides hand stripping.
    Today I had a very thick undercoated Pom and was wondering if using the coarse stripper will help thin out the coat.

    They will also card coat. So they would work nicely on your Pom - I have used them on several myself as the owners did not want much off and I hate to clip them.
    Take it easy with them as they are quick and will cut topcoat hairs but not the same degree as clipping does.

      They will card the undercoat out and if used incorrectly will cut coat, but they do not handstrip coat

        I used them to thin out coats that is what they do best. I would use a coarse CK on a pom

          They will handstrip a lot of the coat off before you need to finish off by hand. I use the fine one to handstrip terriers and spaniels all the time and it saves heaps of time. You need to use them on a dirty coat and you also need to chalk the coat so that the coat king can grip it properly. They will not work on a clean coat. I use the 18 to remove undercoat and to thin ears and tails, also to demat and thin bodies before clipping with a comb.
