All SUWADA nail nippers are fully handcrafted one by one, from forging to finishing processes, by our expert craftspeople. Using techniques and experience accumulated over the many years since the company was established, we have dedicated ourselves to perfecting the original function of edged tools, namely cutting. Today we manufacture over 20 models of nail nippers. They are beautifully formed with the aim of supporting their primary function of cutting, with their blades gently curved to fit the shape of nails and their edges capable of cutting even thick nails, ingrown nails, and deformed nails. SUWADA nail nippers are favoured not only by household users but also by professionals at nail salons and medical clinics around the world.
Classic The Classic is the standard SUWADA nail nipper model. Made of high-carbon stainless steel, which is also used to fashion custom-made knives, these nippers are strong, rustproof, and easy to care for. With a beautiful hairline brushed finish, the Classic model is scratch resistant and any marks on the surface are inconspicuous.
Black The Black model is made of carbon steel and has a black finish applied to its surface, making it scratch resistant and mark free. Because the black finish holds down the reflection of light, this model is preferred by many professional manicurists who work under lights in nail salons.
New Soft The New Soft model was developed based on a large number of requests from customers, including people with weak grips or dry hands and nursing care workers. Responding to their needs, it features gently curved, palm-friendly, easy-to-grip ergonomic elastomer resin handles with antislip properties. We have taken our pursuit of excellence in usability and cutting quality to a new level with this new model.
Mirror The Mirror model is individually hand polished by our artisans to achieve a beautiful mirror-like finish. Using various types of abrasives and sandpapers, our skilful craftspeople polish these nippers with extreme care and deliberation, making them a hallmark of SUWADA’s pride and meticulousness.
Damascus Layered The Damascus Layered model is produced using high-pressure forging of layers of various types of steel with different stiffness. A distinctive layered metal flow pattern emerges on the surface of the nippers, suggestive of the patterns on the blades of traditional Japanese swords, and this is evidence of the highly refined forging technique employed. Like traditional Japanese swords, which pursue excellence in both outstanding sharpness and flexibility, our Damascus Layered nippers express the ultimate in functional beauty. The beautiful flow patterns that emerge on the blades are unique to each blade, so each pair of nippers truly is the only one in the world that looks like that. A limited production item.
Masterpiece Collection In a world of abundance, SUWADA offers personalised nail nippers. For the Masterpiece Collection, the handles are made of natural materials or Micarta, as chosen by the customer, but the nippers retain edged tools’ essential values of being sharp and whettable. Using a combination of different types of material reduces the weight of the nippers by 15 to 25 percent, while the bulkier handles are ergonomically designed for a comfortable fit in the palm. Carefully polished natural wood and Micarta reveal beautiful unique grain patterns, making the nippers a genuine one-of-a-kind item for you alone. A limited production item.
For PET The For Pet model was developed in response to customers asking for a tool that would let them clip the claws of their dogs and cats without causing their beloved pets any stress. Pet owners also feel more confident with these nipper-type cutters because they get a better view of the claws. The tips of the polished blades are rounded to ensure that no harm accidently comes to pets that are being groomed.
