Default Wonderful grooming aid for short coats

Like most of us, I have a sizeable collection of grooming brushes and tools, and I use them all based on coat length, type and condition. (Forgive me if the following tip is already well published.) All my brushes have their place, and one of the best grooming tools I have for very short coats (Weimaraner, Dalmatian, German Shorthair, Vizla, etc.), especially useful if also dealing with skin that's bothered by brushes, is a horse grooming block. There are different brands, the one I use is "Slick 'N Easy Horse Grooming Block". I can't even say for sure what they're made of, they wear away with use and need replacing every few months, depending on how often you groom. The block's edges (not the flat sides) are what is "brushed" against the dog and the edges need to be kept "crisp" in order for the block to work its best. To refresh the crisp edges, you just drag each of the narrow sides of the block against concrete once and the block is ready to go, good as new...smaller, but working like new. They're available in any farm/animal supply store (and online) and are very inexpensive, $2-$4 depending on where you get them. They do an amazing job on short coats and are easy on the skin. (For sensitive skin, don't use too much "pressure", it's not needed anyway.). I'd encourage any dog owner/groomer to try one, it may turn out to be a "must have" in your grooming arsenal.
