Product Overview

The easiest stripping tool. Unlike small strippers, the Coat-King strips large areas FAST!!! It works by quickly and easily removing loose hair, especially thick under-coats. It's great for unraveling and dematting. Leaves the coat full and healthy -- gives it that "show quality" look. All have curved, sharpened blades with rounded ends for safety, and wooden handles for easy gripping.
Original sizes and styles. For general all-around use.
Blade width 1-1/8" to 1-1/2", overall length with handle 7-1/2".

Please Note: The 16 and 20 Blade tools have the same blade spacing - they do the same job - the 16 blade tool is just narrower than the 20 blade, for use on smaller breeds and detail work.
Mars Coat-King

Coat-Kings work well with all different kinds of breeds and coats.


Place tool on coat with light pressure and comb out in the direction of hair growth. Note: going against or aside hair growth will cause excessive cutting of hair. Only use once a week or every other week. (Too much use could result in a bald pet!)


Quick Guide:
  • Coarse & Medium styles (6 - 12 blades) for prep work and thinning out undercoat
  • Fine styles (16 - 20 blades) for grooming soft, heavy coats
  • Super Fine styles (20 - 26 blades) for finishing and thick, shaggy coats (especially spaniels, setters, etc.)

Use coarse styles to comb out the undercoat - fine styles for finishing.
