 Splinter Removal Kit ($21.95) 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.

Only one downside
By: Justus (Oct, 2019)
These tweezers are phenomenal. I worked in shop that had a set of these for a couple years, and I never realized how special these tweezers were until I had to go back to using splinter out and crappy dollar store tweezers. The only downside is once your coworkers see you using them they are going to ask to use them every time they have a splinter.
I own this product.
