Viola tweezers have replaced what was our CSS brand. Viola tweezers are made in Italy by skilled craftsmen. We selected Viola tweezers as our general purpose line of tweezers due to their combination of extra high quality along with their reasonable cost. They are a considerable upgrade from the India and Pakistan tweezers we have sold in the past. These are top quality tweezers for all of your every day work, and much more.
Pattern #5b are the same basic tweezers as a pair of #5's but with the last 3/8" of their tips bent down at a 45° angle. They're great for grabbing small fibers from textiles and brush hairs left behind on freshly varnished paintings. The tips are extremely sharp, needle-like in shape. Made of stainless steel.
GENERAL TWEEZERS INFORMATION
Remember when you are purchasing expensive fine pointed tweezers that once dropped on their points they are never the same. Be assured, if dropped, a pair of tweezers will almost always land point first on the hardest surface around. Tweezers must be handled carefully to protect your investment.
Unless otherwise noted, most all of the tweezers we offer are made of hardened stainless steel. Stainless steel offers good hardness along with very good corrosion resistance. Other materials such as brass, titanium, Teflon and others are available depending on the pattern.
