When we think of beautiful updates to utilitarian objects our minds usually wander to special pruning shears for herbs and cast iron pans specifically shaped to spit out buttery, perfectly browned popovers. But Wait! The best versions of everyday things shouldn't only be for romantic tasks like bonsai pruning and making aebleskivers. Enter: the humble Japanese nail clipper. With its svelte black carbon steel construction, gently curved clipping blades, and sheathed in a little plastic case (which doubles as a temporary receptacle for clippings so that you can be meticulously tidy) these elevate an occasionally icky personal care task to something radically lovely. Tweezer, you're next.
