Nippes-Solingen is a traditional family owned and operated Solingen cutler producing a broad variety of excellent quality implements for tending to fingernails, toe nails, and cuticles.
These little Nippes 290 nose scissors are unique in our catalog collection because they combine the curved-upward blade style (easier, in at least this one opinion, for getting the scissor toward the inside of the front of your nostrils) with bulbous cutting ends that are shaped in such a way to still protect your from accidentally scissoring your skin but allowing a closer cut of the hair, in production from Solingen which tends, for reasons unknown, to have the very best uniformity of the torque required to operate the scissor through its range…they’re some sort of experts in the installation and tensioning of the center screw.
The teflon-coated little Henbors are super duper sharp and kind of cool looking and also good at balancing protection/shortness of cut, but they don’t move like these.
These are 100% made in Solingen, Germany. Supplied in plastic pouch.
