The difference between Bursta 33 and Bursta 8 pin brushes is in the pins' thickness and the brush's strength.
Bursta33 is undoubtedly a better option for a more robust and thicker type of coats because it has a good grip. It's also great for wet brushing in the conditioning phase of bathing.
Bursta 33 is very pleasant on the dog's skin, and it doesn't tear the coat.
Bursta 8 is more for a gentler type of skin/coat and a precise finish in combing.
Both brushes are must-haves for all long-haired and double-coated breeds, and it's personal preferences who likes to work with what type of pin brush.
Detailed descriptions of both brushes can be found here.

Looking properly after any scissors or shears is very important.
It is a good practice to regularly clean and disinfects shears to cut hair. This will help keep the shears in good working condition and help them last longer. It is not difficult, but it does take some basic attention.
Here are our guidelines to help the shears last longer:
Clean with a soft, clean cloth after each use to remove debris, hair, dust, and grit. When this accumulates between the blades, it can cause blunting and deterioration.
Use special shears lubricants. Apply it with a soft cloth so that the blades will move smoothly and friction will be reduced. Only use a little oil and rub off all excess before reusing the shears.
If scissors or shears don't cut exceptionally efficiently and effectively, you need to sharpen the blades. It is best to go to a professional for sharpening as doing it incorrectly can ruin your scissors. To revive shears between professional sharpening, cut through layers of aluminum foil or cut folded fine-grain sandpaper with the grain-side facing outwards.
Scissors and shears work best when the tension balance is correct. Too loose tension will result in the scissors' folding, and too tight will wear the edges of the blades prematurely and cause fatigue on the user. If scissors close entirely and quickly when held up and opened, tension is too loose. Adjust the screw to fix this.
Store your shears and scissors with the blades closed, preferably in a protective case.
Do store shears and scissors dry, clean, and in their protective case, pouch, or box. Check blades for sharpness regularly and check tension as well.
Don't use scissors or shears if blades are blunt or nicked. Don't store them dirty or carelessly. Avoid humidity and keep them away from chemicals.
