I just found a small knock off fuminator floating in a bag of supplies that came with the last cat. After using it on the furball, I got to thinking it was about the right size to touch up a mane... and what timing, as the mare's uber thick mane is getting out of control and my hands are in no shape to pull. I have a thinning blade but it still requires a bit of a pulling motion and my wrists just can't handle too much of that.
I would think it would be just like using a clipper blade to thin a mane. I would work from the underside, in case you end up with odd lengths, and don't try it if you have to braid any time in the near future.

It is. In fact, I used a blade from a knock-off Furminator on a mane this spring. It was actually a little easier than using a clipper blade because the Fake Furminator blade was wider. For what it's worth, I popped the blade out of the handle so it would be easier to work with.
