What is best for trimming the nails? Clippers, scissors or nippers  http://www.zamberg.com/zb/nail-nippers-62l.ashx. I've seen this post and it made me think http://www.realmenrealstyle.com/nail-cutting-mistakes/. All my life I thought that nippers were the best choice. Interesting what he says about the cutting mechanism of the clippers.

If you want an American Made product I recommend The No-Mes nail clipper. They have a lifetime guarantee. I broke my set and they replaced them no questions asked.They seem a little bit pricey, but I have had mine for over 3 years. Also they are a lot better than that junk made in China, Korea and or Japan, as the majority of nail lippers are now made.

Dovo makes some truly excellent scissors.[Image: 70cd99f08b396512a0d895196deb88f2.jpg][Image: d9cb036115c16a5dae8c6eff3a9c5839.jpg]

Recently, I ordered a Seki Edge 2- piece Grooming kit. It contains 2 nail clippers, inside a black leather case, made by japanese stainless steel from the well known company that once was producing samurai swords.

It was 46% off on Massdrop, so I thought it was a good idea.

I 've tried all three, but always go back to scissors.  I find that scissors give me better control than either clippers or nippers; I have a lighter pair for my fingernails and a heavier pair for my toenails; both pairs are made in Germany.

The small city of Seki in Gifu Prefecture (north of Nagoya) has been the center of Japanese blade production from even before the feudal days when there was a strong samurai class; but the oldest companies in Seki were mostly founded in the Meiji Era (1868-1912), which was after the heyday of samurai swords.  Feather, certain of whose products are distributed by Seki Edge, actually is headquartered in Osaka, well southwest of Seki, though Feather does have manufacturing facilities in Seki.

The Dovo clippers are my favorite! Had a pair for years that ended up breaking.  Had a hairline crack in them...go figure!? Bought another pair not to long ago.

I have been using these scissors (right) for more than 2 years and I cannot imagine using anything else.

They take a couple of weeks to fully master, but they are simply fantastic. Very sharp, nimble and accurate yet large grips for my large hands. The edges are micro serrated, so you don't slip - just a wonderful product and highly recommended.

I just wish they would make DE's to these standards...
