Rubis Nose And Ear Hair Scissors Duck
High-quality nose and ear hair scissors made of stainless steel in a distinctive design.
Values are important to us. In our products and in the methods we use to produce them. We have been manufacturing in Switzerland for over 60 years. With experienced and skilled employees, many of whom have remained true to our company for years. Very much in the tradition of Swiss precision mechanics, we manufacture precise and elegant scissors, every detail of which is made to last. All of our manicure implements are made by hand - and, in a final step, tested individually under a magnifying glass. Only products that pass this test receive the “Rubis. Made in Switzerland” seal of quality.
Simple, bold forms are the esthetic mark of all Rubis scissors – embodying the concept of “less is more”. We patented their distinctive design under the Rubis Twist® trademark: each half of the scissors, crafted in half-round steel, twists 90 degrees from tip to handle. It is this organic movement of the steel that creates the scissors’ typical, elegant shape.
How to Use
Nose and ear hairs may be annoying but they serve an important purpose: without nose hairs, particles of sand or dust could get into the lungs, while in the ear, hairs prevent unwanted particles from entering the sensitive auditory canals. Carefully trimming the little hairs visible around the edges of nostrils or ears is a gentle and unproblematic way of getting rid of the hairs without interfering with their protective function. Plucking these hairs is not recommended due to the very sensitive mucous membrane in the nose. Rubis Duck scissors, specially developed for trimming unwanted hairs in the ears and nose, have rounded tips for gentle insertion into the outer area of your nose or ear without fear of injury. The drop-shaped tips also enable you to widen the nostril slightly so that you can trim the hairs more easily. The ergonomically shaped handle grips offer safety and comfort when trimming hairs. Even after many years, Rubis scissors lose none of their original functionality thanks to their high-quality materials, design and workmanship.
Our scissors are not simply stamped out of metal, they are elaborately turned pieces of martensitic steel. This high-quality material, which takes its name from German metallurgist Adolf Martens (1850-1914), has two special attributes that are indispensable to the manufacture of really good scissors: it can be hardened to a high degree, which has a major impact on the high quality and long life of the cutting blades, and it is easily molded, which is important for the perfect functionality and good design of the scissors. Martensitic steel is acid-proof and rust-resistant. By glass blasting the surface and elaborately grinding the cutting blades we successfully close the steel’s pores as far as technically possible and reduce corrosion susceptibility to a minimum. We deliberately avoid nickel or chrome plating our scissors to rule out any risk of allergic reactions.
