      Disadvantages

      Neat little kit, handy to have when travelling or just as a personal set

      I came across these a while ago, not thinking much of them as pretty much every household has all the items included. But for £3.50 in a nifty little portable pack, now I had my own personal ones at hand. Can be found between £3 and £5 pounds online and in the odd shopping centre store. All the items are packed into a 13cm x 7cm pouch, with the outside material being stitched black cotton with the name 'Mr.Grooming TM'. Inside its coated with a clear plastic back and compartment with four areas to store the items, with space for more should you find something else essential (I put collar stays and needles in there). Most of the items fit snuggly in the compartments but some can jiggle about a bit and there is no strap to keep the flap folded over the front (you could use a band). The only thing that could have been considered is a razor.

      Scissors
      Probably the most essential instrument but the weakest in the set. They look delicate but are all metal - the handles painted a frosty silver. The reason why they aren't that good is because who ever designed them focused on looking modern, with the arms of the scissors being so small and the handles 3 or 4 times the size. With such an odd look, the arms are wobbly and the blades become further apart. That and the blades aren't too sharp either, not qualities you would want in a pair of scissors.

      Nail File
      Pretty standard file with a black, polished plastic handle. It has the logo on it and a little indent for a fingerprint - not very necessary. Cleans up nails and files down well, gets dirty in the process. The end is pointy enough to really clean under the nails as well.

      Nail Clippers
      The best part of the kit, these are sturdy little clippers. Possibly too fiddly for some but made from good material, coated in the theme silver, with sharp edges. If you have large thumb nails or toenails though, these may be a bit of a chore because the size of the clipper is only about a centimetre. Best just use for fingernails.

      Comb
      About 60 teeth, made out of black bendy plastic. Has two variations on each half, one with finer close teath the other with wide teeth for different types of hair and grooming. The item shows where it was manufactured - China.

      Tweezers
      A standard size pair of tweezers, again in that silver coat, probably made from steel. They are one centimetre apart at the end and each side has little grips (indents in the metal). At first they're a bit hit and miss and its strange to say that you 'adapt' to the way they work. The ends don't match up completely which explains it.
