Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Andis Pet Ultra Edge Blade- 7FC Size (64121) (Misc.)
This length blade was recommended by a professional pet groomer. I have a Miniature Schnauzer mix dog and was having a problem using attachments on the #10 blade...still couldn't get that smooth look I wanted. Bought this blade and it is perfect...not too long and not too short a cut. This length blade is difficult to find in pet stores...they generally stock a #4FC (their longest cut blade) and a #5FC blade, and a #8FC blade, in addition to the stock #10 blade which comes with the trimmers. I also found that the store prices are slightly higher than found at Amazon.com (especially since you can qualify for free shipping).
Great blade...love the AGC quick changeability of these type of blades. Since I trim 2 dogs and their coats require different length blades, I can change them in a snap without having to mess with screws, etc.
This length blade is a good all-around blade...it leaves just enough hair on your dog without getting close like the #10 does, and you don't have to mess around with the attachments (which I find to be a pain really).

Mary, if you read my heading, I was reviewing the #7 blade specifically. I feel I made that quite clear in my description. Sorry for any confusion.

Sorry... I thought I clicked on reviews for the #10. Thanks to your review, though, I've ordered the #7 ceramic blade to supplement the #10 that comes with the clipper. Thanks for a helpful review!

I think the 10 blade is pretty much a surgical cut. I tried the 7FC and found the trim too long. Had to go over the dog several passes. She has Bischon hair is a Cavachon. I am thinking of an 8/12. Anyone with experience with that blade, or a 9? Thanks

I like a 4FC on my bichon poodle.

schnauzer is meant to be trimmed with a #10 blade. the #30 is what you consider a surgical blade along with its neighbor #40. those two blades are used either for shaving the under paw or if prepping for surgery. if you want something not too short the a #7 is fine which is a little longer than the #10 blade. just wanted to make sure you had the correct info since i am a certified groomer at petco :)

I like the #7FC for my schnauzer, too....especially during colder months. If you aren't showing, a little longer groom doesn't hurt. I also don't give him a "skirt" so it all depends on the look you are going for. But yes, I agree, the #10 is not a surgical cut at all. Nowhere near it.

Hi, just wondering what size blade you use on the ears and belly of your schnauzer? I've used a #10 blade, but would like a longer cut in colder months, and I'm not sure if I'm using the right size on her ears. I'm also wanting to purchase a new clipper but not sure what to get. mine is a oster A 5 clipper

I use the #7 blade all over, as well as on top of the ears, then prefer to scissor cut along the edges as well as on her belly. During the colder months, I use the #5 blade. As far as clipper brand, I use the Andis ProClip AG2 2-Speed Detachable Blade Clipper, Professional Animal Grooming, AG-2 (22215). It's just a little over $100 but well worth it. Much better quality than the Oster brand.
