“What makes a good tweezer is the quality of the steel, the way the prongs bounce back, and — most importantly — it’s the edge of the blade.
It always needs to be slanted. When tweezing, you have to rest your hand on your face for stability and precision. Since the brow bone is curved, if the blade is straight, you won’t be able to get the angle you need.
The edge of the blade also needs to be super thin. So thin, it can only be done by hand.
Most people don’t know that every pair of ABH tweezers is made by hand in Italy. I interviewed over 200 manufacturers when I first started, visiting ones in Germany and Switzerland before deciding on a small, family-run operation in Italy. The owner and I sat down together to walk through the process, and to this day, they’re the ones who sharpen our tweezers to the desired thinness.
If the tip of the blade is ever too thick, you run the risk of pulling the hair too high and far away from the skin, potentially breaking the hair and causing unnecessary discomfort.”
