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:
- One of the most important and valuable
benefits of the guillotine nail clipper is a replaceable cutting blade. Gone
are the days of having to purchase multiple nail clippers, just replace the
blade. Did you know that nail clippers shouldn’t be sharpened? We get this
question frequently regarding the scissor-style clippers. The more you sharpen,
the less the blades will meet and it will result in the bending of the pet’s
nail. Very painful.
2.Better stability and control:
- Coming from the side of a pet’s nail is not
the ideal way. When our hands are tired and we’re trying to put pressure at an
awkward angle, the hand tends to shake. This means not getting the cleanest
possible cut. With the guillotine, you’re coming at the nail head on. This
means your hand is at a comfortable position and the guillotine loop will hold
the nail in place for extra stability.
3.Prevent wrist fatigue:
- By having your hand directly under the nail
all the pressure you exert is going straight into the cut. This is why the
guillotine slices through like butter. Conversely, the scissor clipper has
pressure applied off to the side. While still resulting in a clean cut, this
puts more pressure on the wrist. As any groomer will tell you, the less wrist
strain, the better!
4.Handmade in the US:
- The Resco Guillotine Nail Cilpper is the only
pet nail clipper that’s manufactured in the United States. Not only are you
supporting American laborers by purchasing these clippers, you’re getting the
attentiveness and quality that Metro Detroit manufacturers are known for, with
a guarantee to back it up.
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!
