GERManikure’s combination scissor is well suited for many jobs such as smoothly cutting rough nails and cleanly trimming excess skin and cuticle tissue from around the nail bed. The heirloom quality high carbon stainless steel and innovative design combine to improve upon the traditional German standards of longevity and precision. With proper care, this combination scissor will last longer than you do!
The blades of this scissor are specially shaped to perform well in multiple situations. The pointy tip allows you to get into tight or narrow areas to trim a hangnail or cuticle, and the middle blade area is wider to provide reinforced strength when cutting tougher things such as finger or toe nails.
High Carbon Stainless Steel
GERmanikure blends innovative German design with modern high carbon stainless steel to make scissors that will last. Raw steel is imported in bulk rolls from Sweden specifically for use in GERmanikure's FINOX line; no other steel met GERmanikure’s requirements for consistency, hardness and durability. The formulation for high carbon stainless steel is precisely and carefully controlled to contain just enough iron, cobalt, chromium and other minerals so that it is just as strong as traditional high carbon steel but also is just as care free and rust resistant as common stainless steel.
Unlike most scissors, this GERManikure scissor is designed with an “open” joint style that minimizes crevices where debris may accumulate over time. This type of joint allows access for easy cleaning and lubrication that is also superb for professional sterilization practices such as a high heat or steam autoclave.
Open these scissors even a little and it is easy to see a beveled “platform” area around the joint. This special beveled area reduces the frictionable surface area of the joint, so that wear and tear is minimal and movement stays smooth over decades of use.
During assembly, the screw that holds the two halves of the scissor together is individually and precisely set by hand to exactly the right tension and “locked” in place on the opposite handle. Adjusting the screw will unlock it, eventually resulting in irreparable harm to the scissor. GERManikure uses a star shaped torx screw to help ensure this lock is not accidentally broken and the scissor will retain the optimal tension throughout its life.
Healthy Shearing Cut
Did you know that scissor blade edges never actually touch each other? Instead, this sharpened blade edge focuses the force into a narrow area from two offset sides, which results in a shearing cut, rather than a pinching/crushing severance. The sharp blades and proper tension adjustment found in a good grooming scissor like this one will trim nails and cuticles smoothly and neatly, without pulling, tugging or tearing.
Even though this innovative GERManikure scissor is crafted of the finest modern materials and designed to last for decades, it comes complete with a custom fitted leather case to protect it even further. Leather is naturally cushioning and dehumidifying. The case will prevent damage to the cutting edges when the scissor is not in use as well as help wick away any condensation that may accumulate on the cool steel.
GERManikure believes in long tool life, healthful living, and good environmental stewardship. Each tool is handcrafted in Solingen, Germany by trained adult artisans in a factory that recycles leftover production waste and filters its wastewater. This item is guaranteed free from unethical workmanship such as forced labor or child labor.
