Rubis Classic Slanted Tweezers
Rubis Classic Slanted Tweezers are the best in the world – and the first precision surgical tools for brows to be developed by a woman for women.
Acclaimed make-up artist Bobbi Brown has called Rubis “the Ferrari of tweezers”, and French Vogue honoured them as “the best of the best”. They’re an industry legend.
They were born from sadness. In 1984 Fides Baldesberger inherited her late father’s small manufacturing company – it made precision tweezers to the watch making industry.
The company was called Rubis after the rubies set within luxury watch movements, and it wasn’t doing very well – despite supplying the likes of Rolex and Cartier.
Importantly, Fides Baldesberger was a woman. She despaired of the existing tawdry tools sold to women for plucking brows, and set about re-purposing Rubis’s production. Soon, Rubis was the supplier of preference to the cosmetic and beauty industry.
In the same way that pro kitchen tools were finding their way into homes, consumer demand soon led Rubis tweezers to domestic bathrooms though-out Europe and beyond.
Ms Baldesberger had previously been an art dealer. Her eye for what was good and authentic had won through…
Rubis tweezers are slanted for hair follicle alignment, and have a soft touch coating for easy grip. They’re made from tempered surgical steel, and are acid-proof, rust-proof, and anti-magnetic. They come with little fitted plastic caps to protect the tips, and they don’t lose tension.
And Rubis tweezers really are hand finished and checked – by an actual human using a vice, magnifier, tongs, and tiny hammers.
The Swiss Cross at the top of Rubis tweezers stands for something too. They’re still made in Switzerland – in the village of Stablo. Ironically, its most famous resident is an Australian – the great cyclist and Tour de France winner Cadel Evans. And his brows need a bit of help.
