    I just saw a review of these by my editor in my new copy of Fine Homebuilding and thought you guys might be interested. They look like a high quality tool, and the lifetime sharpening service sounds nice, too.

    Hey, soli, I think the $32 is for shipping to Canada/Mexico/Europe and the tweezers are included in that price.

    Just saw these on another blog. I know this is an old thread, but did anyone ever pick up a pair? Are they worth it?

    These are very interesting. The design reminds me of the Munroe Nanoceps. I don't know that these would be that much of an improvement over Uncle Bill's Sliver Grippers, but they appear to be better suited to carry.

    See, I have Uncle Bills but I don't feel like they have much gripping power. These look a lot less "flexy" at the tips so I think they might work a bit better.
    But then again I'd like to get a "hands on" review before shelling out $25 for tweezers.

    Teetering on the wishlist.... although to be truthful, I do wish the corners (in the closed position) had been rounded off more.

    Searching for a review, I found this interesting alternative product - custom titanium tweezers.

    (I know this isn't really helping. ;D)

    The pocketweez would make a nice companion for my newly acquired $26 nail clippers. The size seems small enough to fit in the same wallet pocket too. Too bad there doesn't seem to be any review.

    This brief video from Fine Homebuilding magazine—leaves plenty for attorneyadrian to cover in his upcoming review—provides some sense of scale for keychain carry.

    I keep the Uncle Bill's tweezers ($6) on me EDC. For heavier-duty, I grab the small-tip needle nose pliers (under $20). Too $ for these, but kool looking.

    UPDATE: I emailed the seller out of curiosity and he charges $75 for either set of tweezers. I have no affiliation with the seller and am not posting this for commercial gain - the prices aren't listed on the website and I thought some people might like to know.

    Thanks! I was curious. I think I saw a set for sale on CPFM a long time ago and the price was quite high. Hopefully the Pocketweez are a good alternative.
