Claims:
1. I claim the idea for the Hygienic Disposable Cuticle Remover as a result of personal creativity, experience, and the need for such a product. I am employed as a professional manicurist. Concerned with safety, I have addressed the potential health hazards of unsanitary cuticle removers that exist today. Common procedures entail the use of one instrument per several customers; however, with more and more individuals becoming aware of spreading bacteria and infection, I have designed a product with improved hygiene features. This innovated product can offer the customer a definite peace of mind.

Description:

REFERENCE TO DRAWING

1. Metal Cover

Enclosing the bade and it's safety cover is the cylindrical metal cover. Formed specifically for the Hygienic Disposable Cuticle Remover, this unit fits securely over the entire blade portion of the device to protect all working parts. Provided a sharp and exact instrument, the consumer is alleviated of the possibilities of suffering minor discomfort due to a dull blade.

2. Interchangeable Disposable Metal Blade

Affording a complete measurement of 4-½″ in length, this view consists of a plastic handle, plastic cover, metal cover, and disposable blades.

3. Plastic Handle

The plastic handle, comparable in size and shape to conventional cuticle removers, is incorporated with a flat, one-dimensional end portion. Specially designed, the handle provides a tapered gripping section for easy manipulation. It is capable of accepting a single metal blade.
