Nail Clippers - Gardening
In recent years we have had an increasing number of inquiries asking us to carry products suitable for people with reduced dexterity. Nail clippers were mentioned as one example. We ordered samples from manufacturers in North America and internationally. Of those received and tested, the ones made in Japan were the best.

Of the three styles we chose, the two blue clippers were selected because they were specifically designed to accommodate users with reduced manual dexterity. The rotary clippers are also easy to use but appeal to a broader market because they enable the greatest precision and convenience in freehand use.

These three Japanese nail clippers have a number of common features:

    1. They all retain clippings in use. The clippings are removed by holding the clipper cutting-end down and tapping it lightly on your palm or the side of a container.
    2. They all have jaws that are offset by a few thousandths of an inch so they can shear nails cleanly without dulling the blades.
    3. Longer than regular clippers, they are easier to hold and need less force to operate.
    4. All have built-in nail files and include an optional high-friction pad that will hold the clipper firmly on a flat surface as the user presses on the lever arm, making accurate cutting easier.
