This professional ergonomic FINOX cuticle nipper by GERmanikure blends innovative design with modern high carbon stainless steel to make a cuticle nipper that will last. It is hand sharpened to a 9mm precise edge and has several design features to extend its life and reduce the frequency of resharpenings needed.
High Carbon Stainless Steel
Raw high carbon stainless steel (surgical steel) is imported in bulk from Sweden specifically for use in GERmanikure's FINOX line; no other steel met GERmanikure’s requirements for consistency, hardness and durability. This rustproof steel is much harder than other types which mean the blade edges stay sharp longer.
The most popular head shape in a new longer size, the 9mm length is suitable for hands, nails and toes. See GERmanikure’s full professional line.
Ergonomic Angled Handles
The handles of this tool are unlike any other cuticle nipper. The 5 degree ergonomic angle of the handles allows the hand and wrist to remain in a more natural and comfortable position while trimming cuticles.
Cutting, not pinching
Hold this cuticle nipper up to the light without squeezing and you'll see a very fine gap between the blades. This is not a defect. Every GERmanikure nipper is sharpened manually with a file (not a grinder) by Solingen artisans specifically to have a hairsbreadth gap between the blades. As pressure is gently applied, this gap disappears and it is this gap-closing action that allows the tool to cut the cuticle tissue cleanly from one side to the other, not merely pinch and tear.
The feather touch coiled spring is frictionless and responsive to the slightest touch. One half of the spring is firmly secured to the tool, while the other half can be separated from the positioning stem to facilitate easy cleaning and disinfection.
One handle of this cuticle nipper is constructed to extend through the center of the opposing handle. Much like a dovetail joint strengthens a piece of furniture, this type of joint ensures the handles remain firmly secure and interlocked for the life of the tool. When combined with a frictionless coiled spring, the movement is super smooth and will stay that way for years.
Even though this innovative cuticle nipper 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 nipper is not in use as well as help wick away any condensation that may accumulate on the cool steel.
