Category: Grooming Equipment

Purchase: I bought the Supra thinning shears to go into my grooming kit. One of our horses has a bit of an unruly mane at times and I wanted something to tame it a little without having to pull it. Greenhawk has them on sale from time to time for around $10.00 Cdn without taxes (they're regularly around $13.00 without taxes).

Likes: The blades were very sharp and always gave a nice, clean cut when I used them.

Dislikes: There's much to be improved here. The little plastic cover that came with these shears is too small. It would fit over a pair of normal scissors, but the thinning shears have a little "hook" on one of the handles which makes them too long to fit into the plastic sleeve. The handles themselves are also plastic and somewhat flexible. It hasn't broken yet, but I don't think there should be any give in the first place. After approximately 15 uses (on a clean mane) the scissors got misaligned. Now they won't close all the way which means they're useless. The blades should be of better quality.

Quality: Metal thinning shears with plastic handles. Comes in a plastic sleeve.

Summary: I'm relieved to see Greenhawk selling updated thinning shears. Gone are the flimsy plastic handles and in its place are new, all-metal constructed shears. It appears that the metal is also stronger though I haven't bought a new pair to test out myself. I wouldn't recommend the older Supra shears to anyone based on my experiences, and I'd be torn about the updated version. They "seem" better, but the one I have also "seemed" good at first.
