About Wahl Competition Series Size 5 FC Blade - 6mm

Leaves coat 6mm length*

Finish Cut (FC) blade*

Compatible with all A5 model clippers by Andis, Wahl, Heiniger, Oster etc.

*Read Instructions tab before use

Select a blade according to the length you want to leave the coat.

The cutting length listed is based on clipping against the natural direction of the coat. Going with the direction the coat grows - which is recommended unless you are experienced - will leave the coat approximately one size longer (so a #7 with the direction of the coat is around the length of a #5 blade).

Always keep skin taut when clipping dogs and cats. Use only F or FC blades unless trained / experienced. F or FC stands for Finish Cut. All blades #10 and shorter are always F / FC. Blades longer than a #10 (eg: #5 #7 #3) come in both F / FC or skip tooth (ST). 

Choose carefully as blades cannot be refunded or exchanged due to ordering the wrong one in error. Check your brand and model of clippers fits A5 blades before ordering. List of A5 clippers >

Never use skip tooth (ST) blades on cats. Use the green Andis blades for cats and rabbits. 

Always oil blades before and during use. Clean then oil again before storing. Do not over oil. Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe off excess oil.

Blade burn can be very serious for the animal being clippered. Blades will get hot about every 5 to 20 minutes depending on your clipper speed, blade type, coat type and condition. Use clippers on the lowest speed to keep blades cooler longer. Touch the blade at least every 10 minutes to check the temperature.

Spray a coolant such as Blade Care if the blade is too hot. If you do not have a coolant, stop clipping. Swap for a cool blade (remember to oil a new blade before use), or put your clipper down to let the blade cool, add a drop of oil then start again once cool.

Cleaning: Immerse blade while clipper is running, in a shallow container of clipper oil or blade cleaner like Blade Care, or spray on a blade cleaner (taking care to keep the spray from getting on the clipper - focus it on the blade only). Run for a few seconds to loosen stuck hair. Never let clipper housing get wet. After cleaning, turn clipper off. Remove blade and dry with clean, dry cloth. With blade off, push smaller moving blade left and right with your thumb to check and remove any missed hair, taking care not to push blades too far to avoid them completely separating. 

Once dry, oil blade before storage (wipe off excess oil). Watch the How to Oil a Blade video if new to grooming.

Regularly check for broken or chipped blades or teeth. Never use a damaged blade to prevent injury to animal being clipped.

To keep your blade sharper for longer: only clip a freshly washed, 100% dry, knot and tangle free coat. A dirty / sandy / dusty etc coat can dull or blunt even a brand new blade quite quickly.
