Having said that, for the more popular brands of clippers on the market, they do make their own blades and guide combs.

Types Of Dog Clipper Blades & Guide Combs
Blades and guide combs that go on dog clippers are different.
Blades are the metal/steel blades you put on the clipper or that come with the clipper, whilst guide combs are the plastic combs that clip over the top of a blade.
Both of them help you clip your dog or pet’s hair to different lengths – both long and short.
There are different types of blades including:
Standard one size detachable blades
5 In 1 Blades – can adjust to 5 different length cuts
Adjustable blades – can adjust to 3 different length cuts
These blades can be made from or coated with different materials.
You then have guide combs which can be either plastic, or stainless steel and come in different sized sets.
