Everyone I gave one to, loves it!

by

I gave away two and kept one for myself. I love having tweezers on hand whenever I need them, and since they are in their own little case, I can keep them in my purse and they don't get all linty.....

Great tweezers

Small so not scary to the little ones. Great control and grip even for tiny sluvers.Buy more than one so you can carry in purse, car, etc.

Best Splinter Tweezers Ever!

by

I have been looking for these tweezers since one of my kids lost ours years ago! I'm originally from West Hartford, Connecticut and bought our first pair at Halls Market on Park Rd. 30 years ago. You'd think that I would remember to stop in there when we go back to visit! I have bought many different brands of tweezers over the years that claim to be for removing splinters and none have been as sharp as Uncle Bill's or as easy to use. Uncle Bill's Sliver Grippers make splinter removal quick and easy so there's much less pain involved. I'm ordering several so that my kids and friends can have their own!

Good product.

by

I don't use them often, but when I need them they do what I want them to. I like the little tube to store them in, makes it easy for traveling with them. Made in USA. Very satisfied.

Displeased!

by

First of all, the shipping "promise" kept changing. That was purely aggravating in itself as I had hoped to use these as stocking stuffers for my family. Instead, I'm stuck with three of these things. As it turned out, I'm glad I didn't give them as gifts because I tried using one -- it's TERRIBLE! 1) These are so small that they hurt the fingers when trying to clamp down on a hair. 2) They look better in the pictures than they are in person. They look and feel cheaply made. 3) They are NO more accurate than the tweezers I already have. In fact, they are actually worse. As I mentioned in the headline -- Displeased! I think others will be, too. Can I get a refund, Grommet?

The Uncle Bill's Sliver Grippers Story

Uncle Bill's Sliver Gripper Precision Tweezer

Get A Grip

Good tweezers are a dime a dozen but a great pair of tweezers is hard to find. Mary Ann McCormick from Lark Fine Food (we featured her gourmet cookies just last month) said these were the best tweezers she has ever owned. After using them to extract a very stubborn sliver that other tweezers couldn’t grip, we have to agree.

So what makes Uncle Bill’s Sliver Gripper so special? Unlike conventional tweezers that are made by spot-welding two pieces of metal together, the Sliver Gripper is crafted from a single piece of spring-tempered stainless steel. The pointed tip is honed by hand so it’s
unbelievably precise. The inventor, Uncle Bill, created the tweezers in his basement workshop. Today they’re manufactured in West Hartford, Conn., by a company that kept the Uncle Bill name to pay homage to his big little invention. One of Uncle Bill’s largest customers is the U.S. military — soldiers keep a pair with their dog tags. If the Sliver Gripper is good enough for use in the trenches, then you know it’s something you need to have in your first-aid kit… and in your makeup case, sewing bag and toolbox. Read More Read Less
