Fingernail clippers were invented in 1793 by Clippers OcOnally, they were first used to pull teeth, scrape protruding moles and popping boils.

Again same as last time. but how did people trim their finger nails down before they came also?

In the late 15th early 16th century the ' better ' classes would employ a person called a " Digit-Enabler " or  'Mauler' as they later came to be known as .

It was their function to bite the nails when the employer was usually ' doing their duty '......

The ' Evacuous Trimmngs ' were collected and every year , on the birthday of the person whose fingernails they were, a ball of the trimmings would be presented to them held together with the spittle of rats and brittle/hardened fat of pigs.

It was here that the game of ' fetch ' was created as it was indeed the dogs of these bourgeois materialistic types that would continue to bring the ball back once it has been thrown.
Men are the same as women, just inside out !
