Questions regarding our instruments

Nail scissors

Nail scissors are small, stable scissors with short, curved blades.

They are used to shorten and form fingernails and toenails.

Nail scissors with an extra sharp tip are also called combination scissors. These are used to cut nails, make fine corners and care for the cuticles.

A smooth, even operation and a good cut distinguish a well processed pair of scissors.

Cuticle scissors

Cuticle scissors are small, fine scissors with curved, thin and pointed blades, which are used to remove loose cuticle skin.

Cuticle scissors with a special ground tip (tower tip) have a particularly fine, thin blade.

In order not to damage the thin tip, cuticle scissors should only be used for their intended purpose.
