Eric Salas has taken his inventions of Stripping Tools to a whole new level. The first improvement is in the metal, the density and the balance is matched to perfection. This will allow precision grooming with less effort and maximum results. Serious mechanics take pride in using the best tools and so should groomers. Tack boxes are filed with tools that don’t work, don’t last and make you work to hard for mediocre results. Tools should feel good in your hand; you can feel the quality the instant these tools are in your hand. Eric Salas changed the design to be more ergonomic and added a comfort foam pad to eliminate the biggest complaint about all other tools! Eric Salas Grooming tools are heirloom quality, precision design and will up your grooming to provide the best finish with the least amount of effort.

Eric Salas Shears

ESP 1023

Every Eric Salas Shear is made of premium Japanese stainless steel. The 440C stainless steel is a 400 series stainless steel, and is the highest carbon content from 400 stainless steel series. It is heat treated to reach hardness of 58–60 HRC. It is a bearing steel, and used in rolling contact stainless bearings, e.g. ball and roller bearings. It is also used to make knife blades. 440C is oil quenched to achieve maximum hardness.

Convex shears, which originated in Japan, work well for cutting all hairstyles and for all cutting techniques. Their blades are very sharp, which makes them better suited for more experienced users. They also help create a smooth cutting action with ultra detail.

Offset grip shears allow for more movement and help reduce some of the over-extension of the thumb. They consist of asymmetrical rings in which the blade is in line with the handle and allow for precision cutting by keeping your hands and fingers out of the way.

The flipper design allows you to stay in the same place and perform precision cuts without having to cut from awkward angles.

Each shear has an adjustable precision high quality bearing allowing you to regulate certain amount of tension at the joint between the blade and handle. The proper balance, generally speaking, is neither too tight nor too loose. Tension that’s too loose won’t cut as effectively, while one that’s too tight requires a greater amount of force needed to open and close the blades. This makes this easier on the hands for long grooming days and provides more precision cuts over other shears.


Eric Salas Detail Shear

ESP 0948

This was truly one of the most difficult shears to design correctly. Most small detailers are throw away shears, meaning the design and quality does not allow for sharpening. These shears are designed to do extreme detailed work on sensitive areas with ultra precision and leave a natural finish. Feet, eyebrows, bottom of tails, face are no longer an area of concern with this detailed tunable shear.


Eric Salas Detail Thinning Shear

Show Grooming Tools By Eric Salas

ESP 0975

The goal of a thinning shear as a show groomer is to remove unwanted hairs with no evidence that the dog was groomed. This tool does exactly that and more. Many other thinning shears just thin bulky areas but the cut is very obvious. The design in this shear sets it apart from the others and will make your finished work a work of art.


Eric Salas Detail Straight Shear

ESP 1046

There are many varieties of straight shears on the market.  Few will cut as clean and will cut ultra fine to course hair the way these are designed to do.  Creating perfect feet on a Cocker, putting the perfect shape on a scissor breed or making perfect curves with this shear can be done with little effort.
