    Just saw these on Uncrate and they've got to be the coolest looking/working nail clippers I've ever seen:

    Anyone else pre-ordering a pair of these?

    $50 nail-clippers... no I don't think so. While I admit it is a very nifty design I can't justify that price. Thanks for sharing though, maybe somebody else with a higher budget.

    Brilliant design! Would I pay $50 for nail clippers? Probably not.

    Granted, though, I could never see paying $30 for nail clippers until I was gifted a pair of these clippers from A. G. Russell. I thought it was a weird gift, but I carry them all the time!

    6 years ago I would have got it in a heart beat. I have tried a friends Russel once and really liked it. There is something about premium items that is nicer to use even if it always cannot be quantified. The Russel did cut cleaner than anything I had ever tried before.

    Nice premium things often do work better, is it worth the cost? Well it depends, if you have all the things you want at a lower level I see nothing wrong in getting the very best, you can't take the money with you so you might as well enjoy it if you have the means. Of course many of us cannot do that.
