To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Bought these to replace an old pair of nail clippers but they really aren’t sharp they might actually be worse than our 1year old pair. Cats who got in line to have their nails trimmed now scatter when this comes out. This product is undoing 4 years of training, I don’t know if I got a bad pair but it’s really bad.
This cutter CANNOT be used without another person holding the cat. The curvature of a cats claw and the angle of the cutter makes it impossible to both hold and extend the cats claw. It just doesn't line up for a smooth clean cut. Using the finger holes limits the positioning of the blades to the angle of your hand. I have better success with plain old nail clippers.
This product was tremendously cheap. I am honestly surprised by all the positive reviews. Out of the packaging, the black little clip in between the handles to keep them locked together was broken and the nail filer was crooked/slanted. The rubber handles of the clippers were torn and scraped as if someone dropped them out of a fast moving car. Not to mention they're a lot smaller and thinner than I thought. There are others on Amazon that snugly fit into your hand, but not these.
I have bought several nail clippers of this style over the last ten years and they have all worked great. After a while they lose their sharp cutting edge & I replace them. These nail clippers were hard to open & close, & not sharp at all! A complete waste of money. (When the blades are dull, it makes it hard to clip your pets nails in a quick single motion & it splinters the nail, leaving rough jagged edges...worse situation than if you had not trimmed the nails at all.) I had to dig my 3 year old clippers out of the trash to repair the damage this one did to my cat's claw.
It works... slowly the position of the grinder makes no sense mean time pr animals are flipping out because it's so slow. Wish I had my money back. Have it to a neighbor with a mellow dog even she flips out
