Buy It For Life: Khlip Ultimate Clipper

In our “Buy It For Life” posts we feature products that are built to last a lifetime. We also give preference to products that are very durable, are warrantied for life, and are made in the U.S.

The Ultimate Clipper by Khlip is a uniquely designed nail clipper, manufactured in the U.S. It has a forward facing lever that allows you to apply pressure directly over a nail. According to Khlip founder, Andrew Johnson, this allows for better control and ergonomics. The clipper uses a single blade to cut a nail, rather than the two blades found on a standard clipper, and this is said to make nail tears less likely.

Khlip earned a Design Distinction Award from I.D. Magazine last year, and a Good Design Award from The Chicago Athenaeum Museum.

The Ultimate Clipper is made with surgical stainless steel. It comes with a lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects — the company will replace or repair it without charge (shipping costs not included).

The Ultimate Clipper is available directly from Khlip for $50.

If the Ultimate Clipper’s price just seems too high, another we’ll designed clipper is the Seki Edge Stainless Steel Fingernail Clipper from Japan, which retails for around $15. I’ve tested this clipper personally, and it works well.
