Little else personifies the invention spirit than trying to take a common object – in this case a nail clipper – and attempting to improve it. And even if the Klhip ultimately falls short of being a revolution in keratin grooming, I have to give it points for trying.
The reverse orientation of the clipping lever means clipping hand – the hand that holds the clipper – has more control, since your fingers are almost directly above the cutting area. This actually makes clipping with my non-dominant (left) hand easier, because I was never all that great with lefty to begin with. But in my dominant (right) hand, clipping felt off. Foreign. A little strange.
It’s $US70. For $US70, it needs to be both durable and dramatically better than normal nail clippers. This will probably last a lifetime, based on the material and build quality, but dramatically better? Eh. It’s definitely an improvement in some ways, but until they get the price down to, say, $US25, it’s a luxury item.
Oh I think you know by now. [Klhip]
