The Ultimate Clipper™ by Klhip® Receives 2010 GOOD DESIGN Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum

14 January 2011
The Ultimate Clipper™ from Klhip® ( has been awarded the 2010 GOOD DESIGN™ award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum. Founded in Chicago in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr., GOOD DESIGN bestows international recognition upon the world’s most prominent designers and manufacturers for advancing new, visionary and innovative product concepts, invention and originality, and for stretching the envelope beyond what is considered ordinary product and consumer design.

Using surgical-grade stainless steel, The Ultimate Clipper is the first nail clipper to be produced with metal-injection molding and is completely manufactured and assembled in the United States. The sturdy, high-quality design allows Klhip to provide a lifetime guarantee (on parts and workmanship), setting it apart from traditional nail clippers.

With its “reverse engineering,” The Ultimate Clipper from Klhip, allows users to apply pressure directly over the nail. This creates a more comfortable grip and makes clipping easy. It has a sharpened upper blade that cuts so cleanly and precisely that filing isn't necessary.

“We are honored to win the GOOD DESIGN Award and feel fortunate to receive this kind of recognition,” Klhip Founder Andrew Johnston said. “We saw the need for an upgrade to a widely-used product, and designed The Ultimate Clipper as a quality, high-end grooming tool that will last.”
