Building model kits together has been a rewarding, cherished, family-time activity for decades. Many modellers were introduced to the hobby by a parent, or grandparent, creating fond memories of time spent together, learning new skills and fostering interests in subjects such as history, design, manufacturing - or science fiction and fantasy! While simplified plastic model kits created for young builders have been available for some time, there has always been a shortfall in quality construction tools designed specifically for safe, comfortable usage by children.
Offering similar cuts to GodHand's full sized single-edged nippers, the KPN-95 Kids Nipper EX breaks new ground by putting the highest quality tools safely in the hands of the next generation of plastic model kit builders. Sporting special features such as bevelled, safety blade tips and shorter, thicker handles – yet maintaining focus on the smoother, cleaner cuts for which GodHand nippers are renowned – what better way than to introduce a youngster to the hobby than with a treasured, useful gift and some quality time together?

Double Edged v. Single Edged Nippers?
While both designs will easily remove parts from plastic kit runners or sprues - there is a fundamental difference in the user operation of each type. Double edged nippers work in the same way as side cutters or diagonal pliers, similarly to scissors they have a pair of blades which are brought together evenly to make the cut.
Single edged nippers differ from traditional side cutters in that they operate more like a guillotine than a pair of scissors. The sprue gate is placed against the lower "anvil" nipper blade and the upper "cutting" blade is brought downwards to provide the shearing action. This avoids pinching, common with double edged nippers, reducing plastic stress causing undesirable side effects such as whitening and providing the cleanest possible part removal.
Tips & Safety:
- Adult supervision required.
- Suitable for plastics only, these nippers can be used on PS, PP, ABS and PE resins to 3mm.
- Do not cut transparent/translucent PS resin, this may break the blades.
- For safety, always wear protective glasses, gloves and other protective gear.
- Cuttings may become projectiles. Use away from fragile objects.
- Apply oil to the metal shaft & cutting edge to prevent rust.
- Do not twist nipper while cutting, this may break the blades.
- Do not cut plastic longer than the nipper blades, this may break them.
- Do not use cutting tool to pry other objects.
- Do not touch the cutting edge directly with fingers, use a brush.
- Do not use on plastic over cutting capacity.
- Do not cut metal, including wire.
Please note that this is a specialist modelling tool. If misused, the blade may be damaged or personal injury could occur.
