Another Stocking Stuffer – Uncle Bill’s Sliver Grippers

DSC_0155 I have used these Uncle Bill’s sliver grippers for over two decades and they have never failed me. I mentioned them in an earlier blog but it wasn’t Christmas back then. A splinter or two a day would likely average the amount of splinters I get so it didn’t take too long for me to appreciate the gift I received back in the early 90′s.

They are absolutely a must in my pocket and I never go to work without them. The clever way the points are made mean that they poke, probe and grip without faltering on the very finest of slivers and then again the very largest. DSC_0152 DSC_0154 The non-slip points are sharp enough to enter the skin alongside the splinter without any sense of invasion and tug out the offending invader. They can be had for $8.99 from Highland Hardware and 8 bucks if you buy a pack of three. Here is the link: Don’t mistake these for mere tweezers, they are incredibly accurate and have great pulling power. I wish they were available here in Europe. These things work! DSC_0156
