833-TWEEZER     PO BOX 20100, Long Beach, CA 90801

 

Tweezers are small tools used for picking up objects too small to be easily handled with the human fingers. The tool is most likely derived from tongs, pincers, or scissors-like pliers used to grab or hold hot objects since the dawn of recorded history.

 

 

Tweezers come in a variety of tip shapes and sizes. Blunt tip tweezers have a rounded end which can be used when a pointed object may get entangled, when manipulating cotton swabs, for example. Flat tip tweezers, pictured at right, have an angled tip which may be used for removing splinters. Some tweezers have a long needle-like tip which may be useful for reaching into small crevices. Triangular tip tweezers have larger, wider tips useful for gripping larger objects. Tweezers with curved tips also exist, sometimes called bent forceps.

I purchased these after losing a pair of Revlon tweezers. I really like my previous tweezers, so I thought they would be tough to replace. My Revlon tweezers were good, but these tweezers are GREAT. I was very impressed with their ability to grab and hang onto the smallest of hairs. I ended up ordering an additional pair of these for my mother and she loved them too; she said it made plucking hairs hurt less, probably because of their precision (less likely to grab other hairs and skin). You will need to take care of these as the tip appears delicate. It comes with a rubber tip protector. My only complaint is that these don't come with a little storage pouch like my previous pair. These are a little pricey, but they are a good product. I'm very happy with this purchase.
