What makes these slicker brushes a groomer’s miracle?
Chris Christensen’s core product line contains a large variety of products.
The Chris Christensen Big K brushes were originally designed to fit the specific needs of the Black Russian Terrier. However, it was soon discovered that this slicker brush also worked for many other dog breeds as well. These amazing brushes detangle and remove knots in half the time of other slicker brushes, and they are ideal for long and hard-to-manage coats.

• Special Pin Bend creates lift and movement; picking up more coat
• Flexible Signature Cushion that is gentle and forgiving
• Extreme Curved Back to allow more control, movement and direction
• Extra Long Ergonomic Handle reduces hand and arm fatigue
• Lightweight Beech Wood body
• Neoprene for a good grip
• Comfortable rounded pins
