A reader alerted me to the fact there were some nifty tweezers in a shop called Octopus in the UK. They sell quite quirky goodies in there, and I found the tweezers for £7.50.
I picked these ones:
They come with a sucker:
These may be cheap but they are very good! I got these because I lost my tweezers and had a damn splinter in my hand which had been there for days. I said to the boyf – I have a splinter and its itching. He says to me, “Just pull it out with your teeth”. Ah – that age old technique of removing splinters with teeth. If only I had the skills.
The tip is slanted and quite narrow. It got the baby hairs and it pulled out my damn splinter without breaking too much skin. I also like the fact you can use the sucker! Could this be the last pair of tweezers I lose?!
