Don’t let the economical-to-the-standards-of-Solingen-if-not-Pakistan price fool you, this Nippes 17R’s every bit the professional quality tool.
Like all the best Solingen nippers (and what separates these from Pakistani & Chinese tools you’ll typically find @ US drugstores and big box stores), the Nippes 17R nail nipper combines different types of steel (hardest for the cutting jaw, softer for handles), so the nipper builds up pressure (like a lever) before executing its cutting action.
You can’t get a continuous cut with a nipper like you can with a scissor, obviously, but a scissor’s much more challenging to use upon yourself, and with the nipper (due to that unique action afforded by the complex construction with combinations of steels) you’ll be able to size up the cut before actually making it, something that’s not practical with scissors and tougher to do with clippers because of how they obstruct the viewing.
