The two words in the name of the brilliant Nook & Kiir tweezers derive from the Japanese words for nuku (pluck) and kiru (cut). The Japanese like to remove their hair; in fact, they often go to great lengths to get rid of unsightly follicles. But forget electric razors and waves. Try this minimal pair of tweezers. You will find the round tip the really unique feature here, since it is friendly on the skin and much safer than the usual sharp tweezer design.
There are two versions with different surfaces: Nook is flat and round, and will hook onto the hair for ease of plucking; Kiir is slightly recessed and will cut the hair at the follicle. The spring-like join between the two halves is also a secret to the tool's success. Made from stainless steel XM-7, it is hygienic and anti-bacterial.
The background to these designer hair-removers is also intriguing. They are made in Seki City in Gifu Prefecture, a region traditionally associated with sword-making. Even today a lot of scissors, knives and razors come from Seki. So are you a cutter or a plucker? Choose whether you want the Nook or the Kiir tweezers (or just get both!). They also come in either black or white design variations too.
