Kai Samurai Spirit Special Edition Nail Clipper Review

So I was shopping at my favorite 24hr shopping mall in Singapore- Mustafa Centre in a foul mood just now.

Decided do some retail therapy…

Came across these zen + Jap looking nail cutters at the men’s grooming section and was instantly attracted to them coz I have been looking for a nail clipper for office (with cover to prevent the nails from flying everywhere when cutting) but cannot find, and these are really quite gorgeous looking! Simple and “Muji” feel…

The thing you should know is I am used to using Pasar Malam quality nail clipper all my life, appx <$1 each. Was a lil taken aback when the small Kai clipper cost like $3.90!

It might be because I am sick of using mediocre clippers, or that I'm simply in a bad mood and not thinking correctly, I circled the aisle 2 times in hesitation and decided to give this atas Kai Samurai Spirit Special Edition Nail Clipper a go.

Can't decide between the orange or white ones.. Picked a small white one in the end. The prices of other sizes are on the picture…

Lingered around the mall a bit more after I checked out my purchases, I chanced upon another aisle, selling all other brands of nail clippers. Manicare, Revlon.. And Kai pro series and ladies series of all sorts! Just when I thought $3.90 is expensive, those versions start from $8.40!! WTH!! They are not even made with Titanium!!! At this point, I'm quite certain that Kai is a branded product and actually quite happy with my special, manly edition that cost $3.90!

And now for the review…

The BEST $3.90 I can ever spend on a nail clipper!!! The Kai Samurai Spirit Special Edition nail clipper is true to its name! Cuts very cleanly and super smoothly, just like a Samurai doing a manicure for me! Ok, that was a lil too over exaggerating, but it’s good. Definitely the best nail clipper I have ever used. I also love the small embedded metal file plate that smoothens the edges of the nails! Finale to my now neat and short nails!

Guess my mood did improved abit after such a good buy and a pampering nail cutting experience.. Haha.. Now I can’t wait for my nails to grow so I can use this baby again! Oh wait! I haven’t done my toes! Gonna get to them tomorrow! Yay!!! =P

(PS: Are there any brands of nail cutters that you have used before that is as amazing? Do share! I’m now contemplating on getting the medium ones for home use! Hmmm… Lolx!!!)
