Personally, I find the typical chrome plated, "inexpensive" nail clipper to be utterly maddening. Why? A) the chrome plating often starts falling off before you even open the package and it begins to fall off even faster when you begin using the clippers; B) the cutting edge on most brands is utterly inconsistent. If I buy two pair of a given brand, I find one clips just fine while the second gets about half way through my nail and decides it's just too much work and I end up tearing the nail instead of clipping it. C) The clippers tend to fall apart WAY too fast, with the thumb lever becoming loose and wobbly in no time. D) The metal is such low quality that any significant encounter with water gets them rusting like crazy. E) Even the better ones have such poorly shaped cutting edges that they'd be better described as "nail crunchers", leaving a rough edge instead of a smooth, clean edge. Some cutting edges are so poor they won't even cut cleanly through loose skin around the nail.
If these gripes about the common nail clipper ring a bell with you, then I strongly suggest you try the Seki Edge Stainless Steel Nail Clipper.
First off, it's stainless steel, not chrome plated ...Read more ›
These are like using a razor to slice right through my nails. I cannot say enough about how much easier and faster it is to trim my nails and our children's. Our kids used to complain that the old clippers hurt. Not a peep since using these.
No rough edges to smooth out, no bending my nails - wow! I wish I had purchased them sooner. Worth every penny to me. Will buy more for travel since they aren't too big to take with me in my bag.
Some of my thoughts:
- Cost: Yes initially they are more expensive than the cheaper ones but after having used them for over 6 months, it looks like it will last longer. However, these are not to the point of out-of-reach high luxury items with gold plating and studded with diamonds. They are probably more expensive because of quality build, carefully thought out design, and the use of good materials and processes. I also contacted Seki Edge through e-mail and confirmed that they are made in Japan which also probably contributes to the higher price.
- Features: It would have been nice if these nail clippers came with a file. The cheaper ones I've seen have this feature and can be pretty handy to help smooth out the nail after cutting. However, if you are mainly using it for manicure or pedicure purposes at home, then you can always buy a separate file for the job. Also note that in addition to not having a file it also does not have a finger/toe jam picker. Hey it sounds nasty but this is all part of the cleaning process! But it's okay because if I see jam, I'd rather just cut my nails short and give them a good washing.
- White Sticker: The white rectangular shaped sticker with "Seki Edge" logo in red and black looks like it might come off over time. I wish they instead engraved or stamped their name or even kept it off entirely.Read more ›
First, it seems that for both new units, the top and bottom parts of the blades do not align as perfectly as the original SS-106, so instead of 'cleaving' the nail to produce a clean cut, the offset blades 'shear' the nail at an angle by 'pulling' the top and bottom layers of the nail until the shear forces overcome the strength of the nail, producing am uneven cut with VERY sharp edge. The misaligned blade parts are shown in the photo, red arrows (perfect old clipper is one on left). Might need to zoom into the photo to see what I mean.
Second, the original SS-106 nail clipper had a rough surface (the top moving part) which was perfect for filing down one's nails by rubbing them into the 3 groves in the handle. Unfortunately, the new clippers have a smooth, almost shiny surface, which does not lend itself to using them as nail files (yellow circles in photo).
I am returning both units. They just do not make them as they used to!
