    How in the heck does a person sharpen the blade on a fingernail clipper? I got a nice chrome imported one with engraving on it (made in korea). It is getting dull and my fingernails are out about 3". Help!

    Dremel too might get away from me and hurt myself.

    I'm thinking of putting a nice pachmar grip on my chrome plated imported beauty.

    No offense, Pig, but I remember when not too long ago "Nice Import from Korea" meant "disposable..."

    Try the dremel on the clippers - not the nails .

    Warpig, Take a piece of wooden dowel or what-have you, about 1" inch diameter and wrap some emery cloth or paper around it ( 320 or 400 grit ). Squeeze the clipper until it is closed and go at it! The two cutting edges should meet perfectly when done.

    Ya cheapskate, take it to a knife sharpener, someone who does knives.

    Send it to me and I'll sharpen it and put ivory scrimshal grips on it. Hee hee.
