I love the wood pin brush. I loved it in the beginning because my puppy loved it but it didnít work on mats or anything so after a while I mostly used it for quick stuff, like brushing around his harness area after a walk. After this last haircut, though, I love it even more. I combed him the day before yesterday but itís been a busy couple of days and he really doesnít do well with skipping more than a day of grooming. Itís not worth it to me because itís 5 minutes if I do it every day but 3 times as long if I skip two days in a row. Tonight I brushed him with the wood pin brush, and I actually think itís good enough to make it until his bath on Saturday! At least, as long as I brush around his ďmaneĒ tomorrow, where heís the most dense.

We have the pin brush (the 20mm oblong one) but don't really use it much at all because with his puppy coat we can do pretty much everything we need with the 006 comb. I will sometimes run the pin brush over his back and head, but it's not really needed with his cut.

I do love Chris Christensen grooming tools. They are costly but long-lasting.

His legs and sometimes his neck/ underarms really require a slicker brush before I can get the comb through, even at this length, which is a longer puppy cut. My current pin brush can't get through tangles (I'm not even talking about mats). There's another CC pin brush I'm considering. Any recs for a pin brush that DOES go through tangles?

The only brush we use is the wooden pin brush. Good luck!

I like the CC brass fusion brush and prefer it over the wooden pin brush. I think the wooden pin brush is great for fluffing while blow drying. Other than that, it does nothing for Mia. I might as well run my hand over her. I run the brass fusion brush over her before combing to prepare the coat for combing and get rid of any tangles. It makes combing a breeze! I also prefer it over the slicker brushes. I rarely use a clicker unless she has a bad mat and that is pretty much never.
