Safari Professional Nail Trimmer Review

Safari nail trimmers first became available (on Amazon) in 2010. Since then, their popularity online and in store has magnified.

These are professional grade stainless steel nail trimmers that come in multiple sizes to suit your dog's breed. They offer a long-lasting blade with a sharp cutting edge and a comfort handle for ease of use. Safari nail trimmers can be purchased directly through Amazon, at many pet stores across Canada and the USA, and Walmart. 

In this post, we will be reviewing the small / medium sized Safari nail trimmer.

Product Quality

The quality of these nail trimmers constantly leaves me in awe. I purchased this item from Amazon on January 20th, 2017. Since purchase, the blade hasn't dulled much at all, and it works just as it did the day I got it. I've dropped the trimmers several times, and there is zero damage to the material. It is durable, to say the least.

The light green portion of the handle is a durable hard plastic, and the dark green is a rubber comfort grip. The remainder is constructed from a professional grade stainless steel. Safari did not cheap out on the quality of this product.

Overall Opinion

Highly Recommended and Rocky Approved!

This product was a pleasant surprise, and I do plan on repurchasing as soon as the blade goes dull. Considering I only paid $13.99 CAD, and this product has lasted me nearly three years thus far, I am beyond happy with it. I would absolutely recommend Safari nail trimmers to anyone looking for a good pair of clippers. You can't go wrong with anything made by Safari.
