Cutting thick toenails can be a daunting task if you don't have the right tool. As we get older, our toenails get tougher and pedicure tools we once used do not seem to do the job any longer.
Having a high quality toenail cutter solves this problem, so making your toes look neat and well presented can be as easy as it used to be.
But what makes the best toenail cutter? How to choose the best podiatry clippers?
In this article, we look at the main aspects to look for when buying high quality nail clippers for thick toenails.
As with any professional pedicure instrument, there are 3 key factors that determine the quality of the tool:
- Ergonomics, or Ease of use
Sharpness – is what most of us are looking for. At the end of the day, you want a quality nail cutter that trims your nails easily instead of chewing them.
And while sharp blades are important, so is the quality of the steel which determines durability of the blades.
Durability of the cutting edge, or how long it will stay sharp before sharpening or replacement, is determined by the steel quality.
There are hundreds of steel grades that differ in alloys and hardness. Generally, the harder the steel, the longer the blades stay sharp. If you want to get the best quality and the longest use for the money you pay, choose professional podiatry clippers made of hot forged steel which keeps the blades sharp for decades of regular use.
For example, Solingen toenail cutters by Niegeloh and Hans Kniebes, are crafted of forged stainless steel which is treated under extreme temperatures and changes its molecular structure during the process.
Even with regular use on thick toenails, the blades in these clippers stay sharp for a lifetime and do not require any re-sharpening.
In addition, these manufacturers recognise the impact of steel on developing allergies. To alleviate this problem, they created hypoallergic stainless steel to suit most types of sensitive skin. So by buying a Niegeloh nail cutter or Hans Kniebes toenail clipper, you buy the best nail clipper you and your toes will enjoy.
Comfortable handling is a must have for precise toenail cutting. For optimal control, choose clippers with long handles to fit in your palm, strong blades and wide mouth to grab very thick toenails. The clipper should sit firmly in your hand to allow easy manoeuvring.
