Premier Blade ExchangeOur offer—exchange a used, dull or rusted Lister® blade set for a new Premier blade set for only $33 (plus shipping). You save $17!
- How do you save $17 a set? You save $10 off a new blade set from Premier (they retail for $43) plus the $7 resharpening fee on the used blades.
- Must it be an exact upgrade? Fine blades for fine blades? No. Any Lister® blade may be exchanged for any Premier Surgical, Fine, Medium or Coarse blade in any combination (i.e. a Premier Fine for a Lister Medium). Note: Super Surgical and XtraCover blade sets can be included in the offer. Super Surgicals will be $47 and XtraCovers will be $35.
- Why only Lister® blades? Because they are the only blades that interchange (fit the same machines) with Premier blades.
- Note: We will not ship these new blades until we receive your old Lister set(s). Reshipping cost still applies.
- Premier blade sets fit: Premier's Clippers: 1000c, 3000c and 4000c. Also fits Lister® clippers: Star, Stablemate®, Laser, Showman, Liberty, Legend.
How to Use
How to attach clipper blades onto your clipping machine.See instructions above.
Setting Tension for Clipping Head
- Remove the tension bolt assembly.
- Fit the blades on to the clipper head. The top blade will fit into the groove of the clipper head. The bottom blade should be placed over the comb pegs with the Premier logo visible. Screw the tension nut down hand-tight.
- Turn the tension nut back two turns.
- Oil the blades. Apply a few drops of oil at least every 3 min. to prolong blade sharpness and reduce friction and heating.
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.)
Sharpening and Cleaning
- 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.

I love this product. I was looking for something to shear my sheep without causing so many cuts as I’m new to shearing. Even though this is for slick shearing I fully sheared 7 ewes with no problem and they look great! I will definitely be buying a second set for when we get more sheep.

We have always had superior success with coarse blades for our llamas from single coat silkies through serious double coated short haired classics. And while I probably shouldn't admit this, even when the llamas haven't been washed or blown out prior to shearing, careful use of portable compressor air to blow out the dirt and regular oiling still manages to allow us to average 5-7 llamas per blade set. MORE IMPORTANTLY is the quality of re-sharpening services provided and the quality of the blades post re-sharpening. Third, I really appreciate the dating stamp on the combs. With 30+ sets of blades of varying ages, it really helps us know which sets are quite probably reaching end of life. Only so many times you can have blades sharpened.

This blade and cutter set did a beautiful job on our black, soft-haired llama Carlos. But then couldn't handle the coarse hair and dirt of our white llama-pig Calypso. Will need to have several sets on hand to get through his mess!

I've never used the coarse blades, but thought I would give them a try on a couple extremely hairy donkeys.
Worked very well, got rid of the hair quickly. I like to use this blade first, then go back over with the medium if the donkey is showing and needs to be really slick.
For at stay at home donkeys the coarse is more than adequate.
