My mom can't find good ones anymore. Anyone know of some good one on Amazon or ebay?

Tweezerman is the best tweezers brand out there.

Tweezers is one hell of a word.

We've had good luck on Amazon, however the sellers and models come and go. Gotta scour the reviews... and hope. We've bought several sets for friends and rels, as well as home and travel sets for ourselves. Only a couple of clunkers/go backs, otherwise we've been very satisfied. Unfortunately none of our faves are still available in the same incarnation to specifically recommend. Since we haven't tried the replacement models, I'm hesitant to rec a specific, sight unseen.

We've gotten these for some of spousal unit's pals, and they've been happy/well received, but there's few we've liked better that are no longer current. Excellent case however, adds to its likeability. This one was a three piece set when we bought 'em as (several) gifts, and they were a notch or two better than the prior link (but no scissors, or pointed slant tweezers, and case was different), but a definite former best buy; not sure about current offering, but wouldn't be afraid to try for $7 - $11.

It's been close to four years since we last bought, and around nine years since scoring some personal super faves. The Tweezerman's noted above are always good, but kinda pricey, but at least you know you'll get a quality product. The space-place looks super intense.

I typically buy something adequate and then dress the tips for my own purposes. Buzz linked to some good looking ones but these days it is hard to know if what arrives will be acceptable.

Medical supply houses would be my first inclination.

We have a few dozen stainless steel tweezers collected along the way from various hospital stays. Hopefully we won't be collecting any more anytime soon.

+1 for Tweezerman products. They're a little spendy, but a 20% off coupon at Bed, Bath & Beyond will help.

It's a precision machined tool. You get what you pay for.

These Body Doc's are Mrs. Buzz's faves..., but hard to find now.




These Marks Gouger are my faves, and even harder to find now.



Had I known years ago that decent tweezers were gonna be so hard to come by in 2020, I woulds stockpiled some more back when the gettin' was good. Though I'm hoping this is just another pandemic shortage, and that there will be more offerings available when the world is healthy again.
