 Splinter Removal Kit ($19.95) In Stock
Recently I found myself extracting a tiny glass splinter from my wife's foot with dull Swiss army knife set of tweezers and a needle borrowed from her sewing kit. The splinter was so small, I couldn't even see it until I realized I had a headset magnifier in the shop that I use when sharpening saws. With the headset I was at least able to see the tiny splinter, but my primitive tool made the splinter extraction an unnecessarily laborious and painful half an hour of work. I got the splinter out - but just. I know the value of having the right tool for the task, so the next day I moseyed on over to my local medical supply shop and asked for a decent set of tweezers for extracting splinters. They said, first of all they are called "forceps," and second of all they have a kit which is what doctors and EMS people use for this exact purpose. The tweezers, excuse me forceps, have a tiny tip, and you can grip down easily and securely. Instead of a flexible pin or sewing needle, the kit comes with a real tool, a triangular steel probe, with a sturdy handle that won't flex at the wrong moment. The probe unscrews and stores safely in the handle.
I keep my set in the medicine chest, so next time I get a splinter, there won't be a mad dash to find a needle and tweezers. I also won't have to mangle my fingers getting the splinter out. The forceps and probe are shipped in a fitted, plastic storage box.
