Black Stainless Steel Tweezers (Simply Essentials)


These are Simply Essentials tweezers. They come in a nice case with microfiber lining.

They're constructed of stainless steel, with a thick powder coated finish.

The overall design is quite ergonomic, as the enlarged portion near the knuckles provides added support and control.

The tips taper down to needle points, and they are perfectly aligned.

The stainless steel used in these is fairly high quality, and does not flex or bend easily, which commonly happens with cheaper tweezers.

I am using these for electronics work, as they offer much more precision than my old tweezers. The fine points allow for better placement of components, which makes soldering a lot easier.

I know they are not "ESD safe," but to be fair, most equipment that is marked "ESD safe" just uses static dissipative materials. The poweder coating on these is more than sufficient, especially if using a grounding band or ESD work surface.

You can pick up a pair on Amazon.com
