  Great item! Very tactile, I used this on the recent Introduction to Bushcraft course with Woodlore to get some particulalrly nasty thistle thorns out. Glad I had this on me.

  Every now and again, a bit of kit comes down the trail that you know is going to be with you, always. These tweezers are one such. They are small and light and nestle on my key ring unnoticed until they are required. After a weekend in the garden, pruning trees, they were put to the test, I'm delighted to report they came through with flying colours. Three or four nasty splinters were all extracted cleanly and with ease. For woodworkers out there, anyone who works with birch ply, these are an absolute must. Thanks to the folk at Woodlore for a speedy and trouble free purchase.

  Love these. Had some for years, lost and replaced them. Wouldn't be without them.

  Wonderful little tweezers that sit securely on the keyring. You could replace a zip-pull with one. They work extremely well as general purpose tweezers (much better than the ones that you get with multi-tool/knives). These are high quality and built to last. Designed (amongst other things) to be used for tic removal but I've not had the misfortune to test them in that respect.

  An absolute brilliant piece of kit. Perfect for thorns, splinters, and ticks. I've carried one on a yo yo on my rucksack shoulder strap for years as a rambler. I have given several of them to friends. Exactly the right tool, always easily accessible, not hiding deep in my first aid kit. This one is for my grandson, who is now delivering Adventure Training to Sea Cadets on their Duke of Edinburgh courses.

  This is a very useful item for any outdoors enthusiast or tourist as it takes up very little room and will not present a hazard as would an ordinary tweezers. The metal holder is very secure, the tweezers will not fall out and the holder can be easily attached to a key ring. The only defect was a sharp burr where the steel was pressed that required a moment's filing off.

  These grippers are excellent. They handily clip on to your key ring or a small carabiner so they are always close to hand. The tweezers are good quality and have a precise point and grip allowing the smallest of splinters to be gripped easily. The tweezers slot easily into the holder and with a quick push click home and are held very securely so you can be confident that you will not lose them from the holder which was a worry for me when I first bought them. The points of the tweezers are covered when they are in the holder for protection so you don't accidentally catch the points and offers protection to you and the tweezers. Overall a top quality bit of kit to carry with you everyday.
