These are the best clippers on the market. I had used all brands from the pet store and they would go dull in three clips splinting my cats nails. These clippers haven't needed sharpening or replacing in months - still sharp - no splinting whatsoever! Well sorth the price. Very comfortable to use because of the bent angle on the handle.
There is nothing wrong with these clippers, but I find it easier to use the orange handled Miller's Forge clippers. These were awkward and moved around too much on my fingers. It may simply be that I am not used to them.
