What I am looking for in Toenail/Fingernail Clippers
I have THICK Nails: You must know that I have elephant ivory for fingernails and toenails. Always have. My nails are thick and difficult to saw through. So, when looking for toenail clippers, I wanted to find something that could easily cut, without tearing and without pain.
I want Cheap: Don’t want to spend more than a few backs on toenail clippers
Something that lasts: I am a loyal product consumer. If I get something that lasts, I will
use it up
wear it out
make it due
or do without
Tweezerman ToeNail Clippers Review
So, I went to Amazon and based on Reviews I bought these Tweezerman clippers.
I admit, they are a good looking pair of clippers. And they feel good in your hand:
But how do they Cut Toenails/Fingernails?
You need to understand, that I use toenail clippers to cut my fingernails and toenails. That is why I tested it with my fingernails. I don’t want to show you my toenails. Actually I do. But I don’t think you want to see them.
First of all that grey stuff in my cuticle is not mold. It is paint. I painted my shop yesterday.
So what do I think of Tweezerman?
I don’t like it. It doesn’t work for me. I am going to throw it away. If you look on the above picture, you will see that the Tweezerman cuts TOO good. It chops of my nail so the pieces fly everywhere. When I cut my nails, I want one remnant per nail. With tweezerman, everytime I chopped down, I would get a remnant.
Don’t like it.
So I bought the Plain Jane Denco Stainless steel clippers
Sorry Tweezerman. These are better for my thick nails. Take a look how it cuts:
You see the cut is “Soft” enough that the nail remains on your finger so you can cut the whole thing off and throw it away. It just “FEELS” so much better than the tweezerman. I’m sticking with my old school Denco Stainless steel clippers.
Maybe this one user review of Denco clippers sums up how I feel:
