Storm Shearing Cutter
- Remove blades/combs/cutters from clipper or shearing machine.
- 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 will destroy both the 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.
Sharpening and Cleaning
- Premier offers an in-house resharpening service for all combs, cutters and blades. Rapid turnaround—most are sharpened within 24 hours.
- 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.
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 and 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.

The cutter is awesome. Cuts right through tough Alpaca fleece filled with lots of debris. However, I can only get through 2 to 2.5 Alpaca before they go dull.

Best cutter for Apache comb, likely with other 9-tooth combs as well. Outperforms other cutters in this combination. I've been a customer for nearly 20 years; always satisfied with Premier1 products and customer service.

Didn’t last very long and customer service is not very good.

Cutters were great but ordered replacement screws only to find out after an hour's frustration that they were too large for the shearer. Lost several hours of shearing to locate something to get us through what was left of the day. I called about the parts ahead of time to avoid such a situation.

I use this with the Apache Comb and it can cut throught the toughest wool.
