    Google "Tweezerman". More tweezers and related items than you could ever use.

    Another option would be to check out some of the tweezers at Countycomm. They have a couple of different types I think. One of them comes with 2 pair and the other is set up so you could use it on a keychain. Both seem pretty capable. Not super cheap but seem like items that would last a very long time. Good luck!

    Uncle Bill's Sliver Grippers, in stainless or titanium. I cannot count how many splinters I've removed with this, both from myself and my kids. I also spent significant time picking glass out of my neighbor's foot with a pair of these. Inexpensive and excellent.

    I must have about half a dozen pairs now, I have them on keyrings and attached to bags, and in kits.
    Brilliant tweezers.

    I got some Tweezermans for Christmas last year in my stocking. They're pretty sweet, and they're black so, by default, they're TACTICAL Tweezers!

    I like the tweezers on a Victorinox SAK for wood splinters. I also got a tweezers with a magnifying glass on it from Harbour Freight that works good, and with my poor eyesight the magnification helps a lot!

    I keep a pair of stainless Sliver Grippers on my keychain. I really don't need anything else.

    Moving this back up. First thing in the new year. I need to find a good pair of tweezers.

    Anyone on the EDC make a pair from Ti?

    I purchased two pair of Pocketweez tweezers (old style) several years ago. They can remove splinters out of the backside of a flea if necessary. I've heard people complain about the new style. I haven't seen the new ones in person nor can I vouch for then. If they are HALF as good as the originals, they are worth the money. They run about $28.
