Scissors, Finger Nail/Cuticle
Definition : Scissors designed to cut and/or trim fingernails and/or cuticles. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two thin, curved metallic (e.g., stainless steel) blades with sharp edges that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are usually attached to handles with the proximal end conformed as a ring to facilitate holding and operating with the fingers; both parts are joined by a swivel pin in the center. Fingernail scissors are usually operated by a person to trim his/her own nails; they are used mainly for personal hygiene or grooming. Dedicated smaller scissors with finer blades only intended to trim cuticles are also available.
