GUILLOTINES AREN’T JUST FOR LOPPING HEADS OFF – LEARN THE ADVANTAGES OF NAIL CLIPPING WITH A GUILLOTINE NAIL CLIPPER
In 1789 the guillotine was introduced as a humane and efficient way of execution. While us at Resco may not agree with these methods…the benefits were obvious! A nice, focused, clean cut that happens nearly instantly! That’s why in 1937 we invented and patented the world’s first guillotine nail clipper.
So why guillotine nail clippers over scissor clippers?
Let me preface by saying that Resco does manufacture scissor nail clippers – we’re not against these tools by any means! Scissor clippers are preferred by many groomers and vets because they were trained on that style. All we want to do is educate on why the guillotine may make more sense for some if the benefits were better communicated.
1.Replaceable cutting blade:
2.Better stability and control:
3.Prevent wrist fatigue:
4.Handmade in the US:
So, give the guillotine nail clipper a try, you may find that you’re saving money, time, AND hassle with a new-found love for a different style that equals the same great result, or better!
