Are the points "grippy"/abrasive?
The single best pair of tweezers I've ever owned had rough, almost emery board-like ends that held the hair in place. From some of the reviews I've seen that these tweezers are "grippy" but I'm not sure if this means the same sort of abrasive/rough surface that I loved. Since I lost my absolute favorite tweezers I've been looking for a good replacement, and this brand is the most well-known but for the price I want to make sure it's what I want. Also, if anyone knows of a brand that uses the emery tips, please let me know as I have no clue what brand my favorite pair was! Thanks for your help.

on Stainless Steel Slant Tweezers
I absolutely love these tweezers. I have owned this particular pair (Stainless Steel Slant Tweezers) for over 10 years. I take advantage of the free service just about every other year, but you need a backup pair because it takes a couple weeks. I just bought another pair because my other ones found their way into my daughters hands and are now at college with her :). About the grippy, rough surface. They do have a roughed surface and they are razor thin which helps them do an excellent tweeze job, though I have heard some people say the pair they got didn't have a thin enough edge. I didn't find that with my original pair or the new pair I just got. I find they have an excellent grip for even the thinest and tiniest hairs. They make tweezing and shaping a breeze. The best thing is, if you don't like them, Sephora has an excellent return policy.

These tweezers do not have an emery board like grip, but they are the best gripping tweezers I have ever used. They are able to grip the smallest thinnest hairs and pull them out easily. I highly recommend them!

These do not feel as textured as an emery board, but the ends do feel etched.
the tips aren't "grippy" in an emery board sort of way, but they do manage to grip extremely well. i am able to extract mere stubs of hairs that have barely broken the skin, with these. they were a worthy investment for me--i've had mine for almost ten years and they're still going strong.
