Suwada Matt Cuticle Nipper, model V-374

A tool that makes cutting cuticles easier, more precise, and a lot more fun! In addition to these, it also looks great!

Cuticles are found at the base of your nails. They are the dead skin that the nail drags out as it grows. You want to clean them to make your nails look bigger and healthier.

A cuticle nipper is an instrument of high precision. Most often used by professionals, it offers clean cuts and you can easily focus on just cutting off the dead skin.

Suwada has been making nail nippers and cuticle nippers since 1948. We pride ourselves on producing the best handmade, high precision nail care instruments in this price range.

This specific model features a 5mm blades' length and a leaf-type spring. It cuts cleaner than cuticle scissors and reaches the sensitive areas more safely. Hand polished to a matt finish by Japanese craftsmen, it offers a very stable grip. It is one of the most priced instruments among Japan's nail artists.

It comes in a metal case for safekeeping.

What to know about cuticles

We only remove dead skin from the tip of our nails. The cuticles are different from the eponychium, which is the living skin at the base of your nails and your body needs it to protect itself against foreign particles. Eponychium does sometimes have a dead skin part and we can indeed remove that. 

Start removing your cuticles after a warm shower. Otherwise, soak them in warm water for 3-5 minutes. Check what part looks like it needs care. Any dry skin you had noticed, any long cuticles. 

Gently cut off any parts of the eponychium that are too dry (dead skin). Once you have cleaned it, push it back with a cuticle pusher and clean any cuticles left. Careful not to tear of strain your skin.

Use a dry cloth to dry the fingertips. Moisturize and massage your hand and fingers.

Man Made

Open tab

All our products are made by artisans in Suwada Open Factory, in Niigata, Japan. The factory is open to the public without reservations to ensure transparency for all our claims.

In rare cases we collaborate with local companies to promote a product that we think you will love. In those cases we ensure that the companies adhere 100% to our highest standards of employee work conditions and traditional methods for crafting goods.

Once an object is made in Suwada, it is taken through extensive testing to ensure quality and durability. We hold the highest quality control standards possible, checking all items, one by one.

Craftsmanship is at the core of our model, and we make sure our craftspeople have great lives, high salaries and are able to expand their knowledge in their field when they wish to do so. This approach of continuous learning has pushed traditional crafts to a whole new level, and has permitted Suwada to train a new generation of men and women in Japanese metal crafts. We absolutely oppose machine made goods that can be made better by hand, and poor working conditions that treat people as if they are product making machines.

Our prices reflect humanist ideals. When you buy Suwada, you buy quality. You support vibrant communities of craftspeople, who design and make useful and beautiful objects, that will improve your everyday life, and carry a little of their maker's spirit in them. When you buy Suwada, you reaffirm all humanist values and virtues, and you chose unique over common.
