Comfortable enough handle.
Dasha Hlavenka
It slices right through the mat, making it easier to comb through it using a comb, rake or even pin brush.

Used carefully and slowly, this mat splitter works beautifully to get rid of mats of any size.

Don't let the look intimidate you. Though this is a razor-sharp instrument, it's quite safe when used properly, and when you have a tough mat you need a sharp splitter. This is used to pull up vertically thru the mat like a pik. The blade itself is never against the skin. I used it on my elderly cat and his fragile skin wasn't tugged at all. After splitting the mat multiple times, I picked it out with a comb, then followed with a brushing. Five paws-up. =^..^=

(Remember, this is a razor and should not be handled by children or anyone not willing to use it properly.)

I almost never write reviews but I am just so absolutely thankful for this product that I couldn't resist. This is the best tool that I have found to combat mats! It works better than all of the dematting rakes, combes and other tools I've purchased.

It slices right through the mat, making it easier to comb through it using a comb, rake or even pin brush. Although it is VERY sharp (it is a blade) it has a safe tip and angled design that allows me to get as close to my little baby's skin as possible without him feeling the slightest tug. This mat splitter is ideal for thick mats that are close to the skin.

I have a super soft and slightly fluffy maltese and I keep his hair long and flowing. I have had so many problems using my other dematting & grooming tools (which aren't bad, I try to make the processes of grooming as pain & stress-free as possible, so I use the highest quality tools that I can find at a reasonable price) because my little guy would be in so much pain with each pull. Using this mat splitter before grooming has greatly reduced the amount of stress and pain that my dog feels, and the time and energy it takes to complete the grooming process.

My cat Beefy hates to be combed or brushed, so naturally he has the longest, densest fur in the family. Although I do my best to work with him, he develops some really troublesome mats. He had an enormous one on his back and I had tried just about everything to get rid of it. I was going to just suck it up and buy an expensive shaver, then I saw this and thought I'd give it a try. Used carefully and slowly, this mat splitter works beautifully to get rid of mats of any size. I worked carefully to cut away the mat and soon it was gone, and with a minimum of fuss and bother from and to Beefy. He's one happy cat, I'm one happy human, and this is one fine product!

I have had the pleasure to spend the last twenty years with long haired cats and now I find this amazing tool, which would have save me lots of visits to professional groomers. I used for this first time on my dog "Chi" who is a Japanese Chin who often gets tangles in his long hair. This tool is amazing and did a perfect job without pain or fear of cutting the skin. I wish I had had known about this years ago and would have saved some embarrassing haircuts for some of my cats.
I never used write these reviews but I realize how important they have been to me in my shopping choices over the past six months. Now the first place I go to look up information on almost any product is Amazon.com as I have found their prices and customer service to be first class.

A very simple device that removes the mat quickly. A must have for long haired dogs or any dogs who are prone to matting.

I have four dogs.
One gets his 'skirt' horribly matted.
This shear cuts through mats easily. Too easily it can be scary.
Comfortable enough handle. Good price.
Make sure it's handled properly to prevent self injury and injury to your dog though it does have a curved point, and I never have had an accident with it.
Do handle all sharp blades with care.

I just received this mat splitter earlier this week and want to tell you that I LOVE it. My dog is a havanese and she has very fine silky hair, the other mat splitters that I have just weren't doing the job. Part of the problem was that I am left handed and even when I changed the blades for a left handed person, I still felt awkward using them. Another problem was that the hair was so fine that it slipped through the blades. With this splitter I am able to target the mat and split it fast making it easier on my dog. It works equally well for both right and left handed individuals. And the cost is a lot less then other splitters I have. Money well spent.
