I've been meaning to buy some decent nail clippers and cutters for a while and finally decided to let the bats out of my wallet.

Firstly, here are some Feather Parada nail clippers, they work really nice. I'll be taking these when I go travelling. Picked these up for USD $10 from Tokyo Hands in Japan:

Nice little grip and the nail file is out of the way when clipping nails:

Smart opening mechanism to clear spent nails:

Next ones are Suwada nail cutters made in Niigata Japan, these are beautifully made and maybe a little harder to use than the clippers. Very precise cutting mechanism as opposed to clipping, and built like a tank. $65 from Tokyo Hands.

Sorry for the crappy pictures, my good camera is currently resting at home.

Thanks for reading.

the only thing that bugs my liguistic senses is why a german company would use a french descriptior... why not "für Herren"?

Those Paradas were on my radar, but I was able to find some stainless Tweezerman clippers locally.

Makes a world of difference over the dollar store ones.

I have the seki fingernail and toenail clippers from japan, both great.  purchased from one of the wetshaving vendors.

I love the look of the klhip clippers.  but man, that pricetag.  75 bucks seems a bit too steep for a nail cutting instrument.

Seki edges are very nice but feather parada is perfect.

I have had a couple of different Seki Edge products. They work very well. I will have to try the Feather Parada.

Same here.  I own the combo with the leather carrying case.  As a guitar player I need good quality nail clippers, and this Seki's are perfect.

I'll have to add the Feather to my Amazon wish list. Can anyone recommend a strong box to store quality clippers in? With 3 females in the house, a fine set of clippers would DISAPPEAR!
