These are the greatest tweezers I've ever owned. I find that the grip is great and the hairs never slip through. I know other people prefer the pointer tip to really grasp the tiny hairs, individually. You can still do that with these, just use the corner of it. The hairs collect on the tip, for me thats bothersome, but you can easily wipe it clean. I also haven't had any problems with rusting and I've owned them for at least two years now.
