Rated 2 out of 5Â by BinNH Not nearly sharp enough
I bought two pair of these (one for me and one for my Mom) and we both find them to be too dull to cut thick toe nails. I bought these based on VCS's reputation for quality and my past experience, but we are both quite disappointed in this product. It is strong and easy to hold and close, but not nearly sharp enough.

We all know a business can sell for less when they buy stock in larger quantities. So if you ask yourself why are many of the items so expensive from this company. Well, think about it for a minute. The Vermont Country Store sells items not seen on the market anymore. Someone is making these items available for you, items you cannot buy anywhere else. So yes, they may cost quite a bit more. This brings me to my nail clippers. I happen to know that German-made items are precision made and always work better (I have had occasion to buy German-made merchandise many times throughout my life). If you search on the web, for German-made clippers or other cutting items with a blade, you will see just how expensive this kind of product can be. However, I was amazed to find this exact clipper was so much cheaper at Vermont Country Store. It is everything and more, and I am totally pleased with it.

I purchased these Heavy Duty Toenail Clippers for my husband - we are of an age whereby we are beset with thick toenails!, and while we expected the best because they are made of German steel, and of German origin - which is historically the best for this sort of thing - we were disappointed because...... they are very stiff to operate, and the cutting blades are too thick and not sharp enough.
I would not recommend them.

The clipper does not cut my toe nails. I couldn't get any results. My wife had to poke quite a bit to get any somewhat passable results.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Great Grandma (GG) These are great nail clippers
Not only is this a great bargain but the quality of the nail clippers is A-plus. But then it just proves again that all products from VCS are of the best quality. I have never been disappointed with Vermont Country Store in all my years (which are many).

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Stef21 Finally....strong nail clippers DO exist!
The clippers were exactly as advertised. They were easy to hold, sharp and cut thick nails cleanly and quickly. Good product.

They probably are, but at 70 years of age with arthritic hands, I need to find some way to use them without hurting the palm of my hand so badly! I'll work something out.
