What Mars Coat King would you recommend for Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla please

Diamond Edge says: We would suggest a wide, fine tooth 23 blade Coat King for a Vizsla coat. You might also consider the smaller version - same tooth pitch but with 12 blades which may be easier to groom through the coat.

I'm getting ready to pick up an Airedale puppy in June, and pertaining to removal of its undercoat and dead hair - if I could only purchase one Mars Stripping device, should i buy a 23 Wide Blade, 20 Blade, or FW23? Thanks

Diamond Edge says: Our Mars Coat King Guide suggests using a wide, 23 blade fine tooth version for an Airedale terrier, but you might consider starting with a smaller 12 blade fine tooth for the puppy.
