How to Use
Storing the Clipper/Shearer, Blades, Combs & Cutters
- Remove blades/combs/cutters from clipper or shearer.
- Clean blades/combs/cutters immediately after use by using a small brush or blowing off any excess dirt or hair. Cover with oil to reduce risk of rust. High carbon steel clipper blades will rust overnight. Rust destroys both edge and polished surface of blades.
- Store clipper/shearer and blades away from solvents, chemicals and moisture. Never leave them where they can be damaged by accidental impact. (We offer a storage box and wool felt for the blades and a case for the clippers.)
- To reproduce the quality of the cutting edge on the clipper blades that came from the factory, a lapping machine must be used. Most other methods are, in our experience, inferior. In addition to producing a cutting edge that won’t last, some methods can permanently damage blades. The most common “culprit” is using large high speed grinding wheels that are used to sharpen cutters and combs.
- Who uses lapping machines and who does not? Premier does and you can ship them to us. Other firms also use systems/machines that work well.
Warning: Clipper blades/cutters/combs that have been sharpened by inferior methods or inexperienced people may be damaged to such an extent that they can never be restored to a satisfactory cutting capability. The same is true of blades that have become too heavily pitted by rust.
- Make sure the comb & cutter are on as described in the instructions.
- Make sure the comb name can be read on outside when placed on head.
- Make sure to have 1/8" space from end of comb bevel to tip of cutter.
- Make sure the edge of the cutter does not go over the side of the comb.
- Make sure the tension is set correctly.

I use these blades on sheep and alpacas on my Andis Xpedition shears. The blades are good and work excellent. They aren't very sharp though. I had to send them off to be sharpened before I could use them, unfortunately.

I am a semi-professional shearer (approximately 1000 sheep a year) and have been using the Spirit 13 tooth comb for several years. I have many other brands also but like the spirit comb the best. The last few I have purchased have been very easily broken so I'm leery about quality of these now. Could be something I'm doing wrong but brand new blades are breaking teeth before needing resharpened (

I shear alpaca and llamas exclusively. Im not a circuit shearer i sjear small farms in 5 states and that accouts for about 100 animals. I use only 13T combs. I have many straight combs, Heininger, Andis, Oster - and Premier One Spirit. I also have a few 13T gathering combs by Premier One as well.
I have found the Spirit combs to be equally comparable to the other brands. Out of the box sharp and ready to use. I dare say the Spirit combs may hold an edge a little longer in the right conditions!
If your shopping for combs - do not hesitate to shop Premier One Spirit.

I love the Spirit combs for blocking out sheep for show. The Premier shears are also easy to use when making curves on the sheep in tight places because of their compact size.

These are great especially if you're just getting started. I've been to two shearing schools at Ag Universities. One used Premier shears with these combs and Spitfire cutters. The other I used my own Premier shears with these combs and Spitfire cutters. Other students were using bigger shears fitted with Chinese combs and cutters. The combs and cutters didn't last nearly as long and they were fatigued faster holding those heavy shears.
