The Bamboo Groom Slicker Brush with Stainless Steel Pins is hand crafted from one of the world's most sustainable materials...bamboo! It's both light weight and durable. Featuring an ergonomic handle with rubber thumb supportfor a secure hold. Designed for all coat types. Angled pins reach into the undercoat to gently remove loose hair. Use regularly to reduce shedding, prevent mats forming, and keep the coat smooth and shiny. Great tool for getting into mats to detangle (highly recommend using with a detangling spray) when dealing with bad mats or tangles).
