So, I'm in this Facebook group for cat-lovers, and one of the members there said to buy the FURminator, which is this fancy grooming brush for cats and dogs. I went to the website, watched the videos, and then went out on a [very expensive] limb and bought the brush at PetSmart.

Here is what Akira and my deck looked like after about a ten-minute brush--and keep in mind that I brushed her thoroughly with my shedding blade the day before:

I'm pretty sure she lost five pounds... of fur...

Needless to say, I am VERY satisfied with the results; quite comparable to the photos/videos on the website. I highly recommend this brush if you have pets. Down side--very expensive. But, I'd way rather have this fur on my deck and vacuum it up once from there than have it in daily bits and pieces on my couch and clothing.

My shedding blade is now 2nd place...
