JW Pet Gripsoft Cat Shedding Blade
Years of being a cat daddy, I have never found the perfect tool for grooming. This tool, is the most perfect tool. Seriously, it clears the dead fur without shredding the coat. This tool is a miniature version of what horse keepers use. Seriously, this is the absolute best grooming tool. You would be devastated to not buy this product.
My oldest, Enrique, usually never sits still during grooming. With this, he doesn't want to leave. He begs for more. Not a lot of pressure and go with the grain of hair.

Very good de-shedding tool, good price
I tried this on my cats as soon as I got it and took off a ton of fur right away. I really wanted a de-shedder as I would end up with handfuls of fur just simply petting my cats. This worked well on both my fluffy and short hair cats. It definitely helps with keeping hair out of your home and your cat. And I think it is a lot easier to use over a fine tooth comb or slicker brush. But it is a bit messy, so use it outside on the porch or vacuum afterwards.
Keep in mind it is possible to overdo it with a shedding blade, so once most of the old, shed hair is removed use a regular brush for further grooming so you aren't removing so much fur that it looks thin or patchy. The shedding blade is also not to be used on delicate areas such as the legs and head.

The best brush
If you haven't used a shedding blade on your cat you have no idea how much hair there is to remove. We used this brush on a cat AFTER it had already been brushed with a conventional tool, and it removed twice as much hair as the comb-type brush had. I was afraid that at this price the brush might not be of very good quality, but my fears were unfounded. This is a great product at a great price.

Good but cats don't love it
I ordered this tool because my aunt used it and I was amazed at how much hair it was able to pick up. Her cats loved it. Maybe my cats are just more sensitive, but they don't like this tool as much as the one I already had. They don't hate it, but they won't sit still while I'm using it. It is, however, extremely effective at getting hair off.

Grab a loose hair on the surface only
I own 2 Furminator de-shedder, 1 Safari, a few JW Pet Combs, plus many other tools. I bought this item due to a very good review. I have 2 long haired cat and one of them is overly groom herself. Finally, the product arrived and I'm excited to try it on my cats. It turns out that the teeth on the round metal comb is quite shallow. It can't possibly grab any loose matted undercoat fur. Instead, it grab loose top coat fur and the fur flies everywhere when I use it. Unlike Furminator or Safari which hold the fur in their teeth until I take those fur off the unit. On top of that, my JW Pet Gripsoft Cat Shedding Blade has a piece of broken material rattling inside its handle. My cats probably think I have a toy in my hand while trying to groom them.

Did not work for my long haired cat
It did nothing on my long haired cat. I donated it to the local shelter. Maybe they will have better luck than I did.

odd design, but works great
this is much more effective than my brush. i comb a few times per spot, and the loose hair just falls out. my cats seem to like it.
