It is basically a hacksaw blade in a handle. It is worth the money because all the edges have been rounded off, it is easy to use, easy to hold, very sturdy, and it works well. The materials may not have cost much, but the design is excellent. It would be a lot of trouble to try to set up to make one that nice yourself.

It's actually pretty easy :) my old barn owner has been making them for about 15 years, takes him about 15 minutes per blade. He makes a ton and leaves them in our common grooming areas. The sleekez is the same thing, with a fancier name :)

My welder hubby gave me all his used hacksaw blades. Being a bit dull for his needs they were perfect for grabbing loose hair. Now I don't do that as horses need that hair in the event of cold inclement weather like we just had. I'll leave it to the horse to decide. They have access to a sand riding ring and that's where they head to indulge is lots of rolling.

Furminator is a clipper blade, it clogs quicker and you constantly have push the lever to push the clogged hair out. The Sleekez grabs more hair, although I find the furminator works better on the stomach, griddle blocks work best on legs and head, I have the whole arsenal!

I absolutely love my SleekEZ!!! I can't say enough good things about it. Every barn I'm at with my horse, it gets passed around every fall and spring and they all love it. A lot of people end up buying it after they use it or see how well it works with my horse.

Would a SleekEZ bother a sensative skinned mare?

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

My mare is your typical sensitive OTTB and she loves when I use the sleekEZ on her, she hates the metal shedding combs

I want one!

**I must not forget to thank the difficult horses, who made my life miserable, but who were better teachers than the well-behaved school horses who raised no problems.**

Thanks to this forum, I introduced wife and daughter to hacksaw blades. They couldn't be more pleased. I on the other hand am coughing up pony and QH hair balls, apperently I was down wind. Shedding season makes me like TB even more.
