I recieved my shedding blade and I must say it works ok. I bought a thing years ago that I forgot the name of. I just found it and will post a link but I think it works best for getting the hair off in clumps instead of having it fly all over. Its called a grooma groomer. I work it in a circular motion all over the body. I used the shedding blade as a final swipe to get any left overs.
Just wanted to add a review of sorts since I just started using the shedding blade. All in all I like the grooma groomer best. :) I have the oster one that looks like it but the grooma works better. Don't know what the difference is, but there is something.
Heres what it looks like http://www.grooma.com/original.html
Edit: I'm pretty sure I got it through Valleyvet.com
