    Does anyone use the #7/8 blade for between the pads? http://www.amazon.com/Oster-CryogenX.../dp/B001CLSYJ0 It's called a toe blade, so it should be pretty good for this job, but I've never tried it. Anyone?

      I'm always nervous of scissoring pads. My teacher always scissored pads and I never learned how to clipper them until I started my own shop and watched a Jodi Murphy video lol. I don't mind scissoring around the pads, it's in between the pads that scare me. I'll do it if I have to, I've never nicked a dog before but if i can get away with clippering i will.

          SO MUCH safer (and less expensive in the long run) just to get an adjustable trimmer like a Bravura and using that.
          There are 3 different kinds of people in this world: Dog people, cat people, and rational people who don't have a problem liking two things at the same time.

            I use those sometimes but NEVER use the foot blade in between pads as the teeth are futher apart and they tend to nick the webbing between the toes easily. I still scissor most of my pads. Flush with the pad, not inside. If I have to go inside I use the Bravura or Mini Arco.

              Agreed. I bought one and hate it. Still have it just to remind me not to use the toe blade. I love the 5-1's for feet now.
