My sister got a tiny, tiny sliver of a splinter. We could hardly see it. Uncle Bill's Gripper grabbed it on the first try and pulled it right out. A really great product!


Very Happy!

I couldn't be more delighted with this excellent product (x3)! After reading other reviews as well as Uncle Bill's backstory, I was really looking forward to seeing my purchase. I was not disappointed!

Simple and efficient design and high quality material - doing it right means doing it well!


Multiple uses

I use these for dollhouse miniature work. They are small and work quite well. I did remove a small splinter and they did what I needed for them to do. Great buy!!

I love the flexibility and sharpness of this tweezer. In the past I have spent up to $30 for the perfect tweezers and nothing has come close to Uncle Bill's Sliver Grippers. It is so accurate I was able to get a small eyebrow hair that was missed after waxing. I absolutely love it and I may not share the other two.


Awesome product

I love these tweezers. I am an eye doctor and need to remove eyelashes. These work better than most of the tweezers made specifically for lashes. With three I received; I have one at work, one at home and one with my camping supplies. Thank you!

What a great little tool! & the holder is so simple & neat. I immediately put one on my key ring & at lunch with friends, one of them noticed it & investigated it. Needless to say, the other 2 were claimed, so much for having a spare! Lol I'm going to have to order more as gifts I think!

Excellent in more ways than one: the key chain clip is a stroke of genius.


Best tweezers I have

I live in the desert Southwest, where most outdoor work risks cactus needles, burrs, etc. I use these virtually every day I work around the house. I've yet to meet a splinter that my Sliver Grippers can't beat.

Had to already use them a couple of times and they are perfect. Love the fact that I can keep it on my keychain so that I always have them!

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
