Top 5 Most Popular Nail Clippers in Japan

      I've often heard that Japanese nail clippers are very popular for foreign tourists visiting Japan. Indeed, Japan has one of the world’s foremost blade-producing cities. Top 3 blade producing cities in the world are Seki (Japan), Sheffield (England), and Solingen (Germany).  Seki city is located in Gifu prefecture, Japan, and has a history of over 800 years as the home of high quality blades. The city has about 450 companies related to blade manufacture.
     If you are going to visit Japan, I recommend you to get Japanese nail clippers there because they are really well made and last so long. (You can probably use Japanese ones for over 20 years.) While they are high quality, the prices are pretty reasonable. :) You can find Japanese nail clippers everywhere in Japan such as drugstores, supermarkets, discount stores and so on.  Today, I'm going to share with you top five most popular nail clippers in Japan. I am pretty surprised that all five highly rated nail clippers I listed below are made in Seki city!

1. Kai 005 Nail Clippers (貝印 爪切り Type 005)
1080 yen

In 1908, Kai was established in Seki city.  They makes many nail clipper products, and this one, Kai 005, is the most popular nail clippers on Amazon Japan. I just checked my nail clippers and found that mines are also from Kai. :)

     As I often mentioned in my previous entries, I really love Muji products. Muji is a Japanese retail company which sells many diverse foods, households, stationary, clothing, kitchen appliance, furniture, and so on. Muji also sells their popular nail clippers which are made in Seki city.

     By the way, this interesting YouTube video, Imagine The Life Without Blades, is the official promotional video of Seki city.
