GERmanikure NISSORS, FINOX surgical stainless steel heavy universal nail scissors nipper type
Combining plier style handles commonly found on nippers with a durable scissor blade business end, the GERManikure nissor (NIpper + sciSSOR) is a revolution in nail trimmer design. There is no longer any need for a right-handed and a left-handed scissor; the palm grip makes this tool ideal for use in both hands. 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 nissor will be passed down for many generations to come!
The “plier style” handles of these unique nail scissors allow for a strong, comfortable, and more secure palm grip. This type of grip is especially well suited for both right and left hands, as well as reducing stress on finger and hand joints, making these nissers an arthritis friendly tool.
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 nissor 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 nissers 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.
The crush-stopper handles only permit the nissers to close just far enough to cut and no farther, which protects the scissor blades from grinding, damage and accidental overlap due to a strong crushing squeeze.
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 nail scissor like this one will trim finger or toe nails smoothly and neatly, without pulling, bending or tearing.
The double spring of the GERManikure nissor is frictionless to ensure the smoothest possible cutting action while in use. Each spring half is individually removable from its corresponding handle for quick replacement if needed.
Even though this innovative GERManikure nissor 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.
