AbstractA nail clipper includes a removable receptacle for receiving the nails as they are clipped. The basic construction is relatively standard, except that the lower arm of the pivoting cutters defines an opening through which the clipped nails enter the receptacle. A cushion is also provided between the arms at approximately their pivot point, in order to deflect clipped nails into the receptacle, through the opening. Guidance for the pivoting arms is provided by a band, affixed to the lower arm and movable relative to the upper arm.
