The Sentinel Stripping knives are handmade and manufactured in Belgium under supervision of the famous breeder and groomer Rony Demunter. The materials used are a high-quality metal alloy which is stronger and lighter than other knives and very light - each knife weighs under 30 grams. The Beech wood used to produce the handles comes from sustainable European forests and the varnish is FCS approved as a safe A+ for the environment.
The Sentinel stripping knives are available in five different styles of blade with either fine or wide handles to suit all groomers and each knife can be ordered in left or right-handed versions. These hand-crafted knives will not damage or break the coat and there is a knife suitable for all kinds of hand stripping, whether it’s detailing and finishing a show dog or for use on a commercial dog in the salon.
The Sentinel Stripping knives have a lifetime warranty

Coarse For thick, long coats with undercoat and coats which are difficult to strip
The W4 is for use for the thicker coats that are difficult to strip or that have waited a long time to be stripped.
Extra Fine For flat work and very fine finish, for sensitive skin
The W5 is for all parts were the hair needs to be extra short such as on the cheeks, ears and head.
Due to the very small micro teeth, this stripping knife is safe to use on sensitive skin.
** note from Joanne: I have used these on a rolled schnauzer that was overdue. I found them very comfortable in that your thumb does not have to reach for the blade. The knife fresh out of the box does NOT cut hair! i loved the range of choices, especially the two wider teeth/coarse ones on thick schnauzer coat! I will be trying out the different handles next. Paired with the sentinel chalk i swear I was faster!
