 How are Dog Grooming Scissors measured?

Dog grooming scissors are made at various lengths to enable the dog groomer to use the correct length depending on the grooming task that they are about to carry out. To ensure that the dog groomer can purchase the correct scissor for the tasks, the scissor's length should be displayed either as part of the images or part of the scissor’s description.

The most precise way to measure a dog grooming scissor is simply by using a 30cm/12 inches ruler with. Place the scissor on a flat surface parallel to the ruler and make sure that the tip of the scissor is in line with the 0-inch mark.
