The Oster Convex2 Heavy 8-Inch Straight Scissor (Affiliate Link) is an easy-to-use grooming shear, perfectly suited for the more difficult coats such as that needed for a Poodle clip.
It makes it much easier to get through the curly coat, typical of Poodle breeds or the thicker coat of a Bichon for example.
The handle makes for more comfortable cutting because of the fact that you can adjust the tension and it has a finger rest that can be removed if preferred.
