Why am I talking about tweezers? I realize this must seem dumb, and I too would have probably thought so earlier, but I found these tweezers and they are fantastic. Rubis Tweezers are the best, the best, the best tweezers around. Get rid of whatever tweezers you have (unless it's Rubis) and buy a pair of these. They are fantastically sharp and precise and you will never have a problem using these or pulling out the tiniest splinter.
Had you asked me, pre Rubis discovery, how much I would pay for tweezers, I would have said, 12-15 dollars max. However, now that I have used these, I will gladly fork over the 25 or so that they cost. Seriously, go try them.
