Innovative Cutting Tools: Slanted Tweezers
I received for the purpose of review this great pair of stainless steel tweezers that are actually easy to hold and ergonomically designed! Made by Slice, the company who takes ordinary everyday cutting objects and re-designs them, resulting in award-winning, innovative cutting tools with artistic design. They offer many tools such as box cutters, peelers, letter openers and so many more. Their most recent addition is beauty tools, and I was lucky enough to receive a pair of their new, Slanted Soft Touch Tweezers.
Every pair of tweezers I have ever owned were those standard, skinny, silver-colored tweezers whose biggest options in design were slanted-tip, pointed-tip or straight-tip. They varied in their ability to actually tweeze, some would grab thin things like eyebrow hairs and splinters, and some would not. Regardless, none were very innovative, nor comfortable to hold. None that is until I tried these by Slice!
The first thing about these tweezers I noticed, besides their pretty red color, was that the part you hold with your fingers is actually wide, and is shaped to where your fingers fit around it perfectly. This allows you to have excellent grip and control. The second thing I noticed was that they are covered in this soft, rubberized material which helps add to the no-slip grip and makes holding them much more comfortable. But best of all? The blades are extremely thin and lined up perfectly! There is absolutely no overlapping at all. Looking back on the website, I noticed it said the tips of the tweezers are hand-filed, and you can tell they are! Nice, thin and sharp…the perfect pair of tweezers!
The true test came when I decided to shape my eye brows. Usually this entails a lot of repeated ‘reaching and grabbing’ only to have to do it again because the hairs slipped through the points of my tweezers. Some of the hairs wouldn’t even come out until after 3 or 4 tries. After doing this over and over for both brows, my hands start to ache and cramp. I have to relax my hand for a few minutes, then start again. Even with tweezers that did grip the hairs, I would notice a slight cramping sensation by the time I finished. This time? Using my new Slice tweezers? All it took was one grab and I had that hair and could pull it out. But be careful! These are aligned perfectly, thin and sharp and I pinched myself once or twice because I was not used to such precision! Once I got the hang of it though, no problemo!
These tweezers also come in a Combo Tip or Pointed Tip, both of which are available in red or stainless steel. You can find these and other Beauty Care products on the Slice website, as well as many products for the Kitchen , the Home & Office and Safety and Industrial. All products are created using some of the most innovative designers around. The best part is, at least 1% of all product sales are donated to help fund autism research.
