Windrush Alpaca from New Mexico
Only in an emergency will I use metal cutters again, I have three or four sharp ones, I keep in reserve. I started using the ceramic cutters last year. First time use I was able to shear 16 alpacas on one set (new cutter - resharpened comb) I was impressed. Follow up sets not quite as good but still better than metal. I was able to shear 53 alpacas laced with New Mexico sandy dirt with 4 ceramic cutters and 7 combs, (two machines helped to keep blades sets cooler. that's an average of over 13 per cutter. I'm good with that.

Just an update: I have switched exclusively to using this cutter and resharpening I do on progressively finer diamond hones and with no loss in performance. Still getting over 20 alpaca on one cutter. Works fine with my old style LGS machine but not the new style due to the softer plastic drive gear. But I still love these cutters.

These cutters worked great while they were sharp. However, I did NOT realize at the time of purchase that these could not be resharpened. I would not have bought them if I had known that.

I'm giving these 5 stars for the way these cutters work. They are fabulous. But if you are a klutz like me, don't bother, because if you drop them they break, just like fine china. Then you'll say "there's 15 bucks down the drain".

Thought I would give these a try,they worked great. I can get anywhere from 20-30 alpaca done on one cutter and 2-3 combs. Doing up to 1000 a year, wish I had these 14 years ago, would have saved me hours of sharpening! Yes these can be resharped on diamond hones with no noticeable loss in shearing quality or quantity.
