These metal cuticle pushers might all look the same, but they're not. This Tweezerman cuticle pusher is way more effective. This one is smaller making it easier to navigate around hands and to hold without it flying. The ends also work differently. Others are either not tough enough or they scrape the nail. This Tweezerman easily pushes the cuticles without harming the surface of the nail. Ya, it's worth the extra cost to buy this one.
