    My wife cuts our 2 mini schnauzers with a #10 Oster A5. Instead of having the blades resharpened again, I thought I would just buy a new blade for her. Looking online, I see two new kinds of Oster blades - an Oster cryogen blade and an Oster zerion blade which has some ceramic content to it. Is one better than the other, or it is just a matter of preference? My wife probably grooms both dogs at least once per month, so they will not be used daily like the pros.

    Also, anybody use those midwestern grooming tables, the ones with the fold-up legs, or is that just for us amateurs? After 8 years of doing this, we might be ready for an upgrade to a smaller table to give the pups less room to roam around.

    Thanks for your input.

    The ceramic blade will probably hold its edge longer

    I personally do not like the ceramic blades, they don't seem to cut as nice. I'm sure on terrier hair it wouldn't make much difference but I would go for the cryogen.
