I've owned many nail clippers in my life but these are by far the nicest ones I've ever had. Ive had them for about 2 years now. When my daughter was born, I bought the tiny nail clippers with the large, plastic, egg shaped handle. They were dull, small and hard to handle. I used the smaller one in this kit instead and it was so much easier. Now, the larger ones are for me and the smaller one is for her. These are the only ones I've had this long. The others have rusted, fallen apart or become dull. I highly recommend these because you really can't beat this price or the quality.
