Perfect for the tiniest and most delicate of nails, GERManikure’s innovative safety tip baby scissors will smoothly cut baby’s nails closely and neatly. The heirloom quality FINOX high carbon stainless steel and unique design combine to improve upon the traditional German standards of longevity and precision. With proper care, this baby scissor will last multiple generations!
Rounded Safety Tips
These scissors have a shorter cutting edge than the larger adult scissor of the same style (GMSS1-1) and rounded off safety tips to prevent accidental injury. These scissors are perfect for use on baby’s delicate and thin fingernails, where the first cut must always do a complete job. The adult sized loops combined with the smaller sized blade mean they are easier and safer for mom or dad to use near delicate skin than scissors with full size pointed blades.
FINOX Stainless Steel
GERManikure blends innovative German design with modern FINOX high carbon stainless steel to make scissors that will last. Raw FINOX high carbon stainless steel is imported in bulk form from Sweden where it is precisely and carefully controlled to contain just enough iron, cobalt, chromium and other minerals. This control ensures uniform consistency, strength similar to traditional high carbon steel, and improves upon the near rust proof qualities of common stainless steel so much so that we guarantee these scissors will never rust.
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 baby’s nails smoothly and neatly, without pulling, bending 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.
