Yes, we still LOVE our tweezers, and will use them in other ways now... but we just found the best new tool on the market. The CRYSTAL KATANA. There are other similiar products out there, but this is the one that works consistantly and exactly how it is intended to work. It picks up AND releases beautifully. It is Stamplistic AND Swarovski endorsed! The Crystal Katana has now become a must have tool.
