EVANGELION × Tweezers of Longinus
Pre-order
?

Pre-order projects do not have a fixed funding goal, and everyone who reserves the product during the project period will receive it after the project ends and the product has been manufactured.

The Tweezers of Longinus are designed after the Spear of Longinus from the Evangelion series, and are created in a small-scale Japanese workshop that take pride in their techniques and capabilities. Be sure to also check out the core-shaped acrylic stand as well as the limited titanium tweezers!

SUCCESS!
This project has achieved its goal!

This project has already ended.

Description

Starting out as a TV show in 1995 and gaining popularity through the Rebuild film series, Evangelion has captured the hearts of countless fans.
The iconic Spear of Longinus from the series is now available in tweezer form!

Although tweezers are quite common and often used in everyday life, it is rather difficult to come across one of high-quality. It is an item where cost does not necessarily equate to quality.

However, we were able to mass produce the Spear of Longinus in the form of high-quality tweezers with the technology the human race has built up.

Plucking even the deepest ingrown hair will become an easy task with the Tweezers of Longinus.

We are confident that the Tweezers of Longinus will offer performance and quality that truly lives up to the Longinus name.



■But why tweezers?
“But why make the Spear of Longinus in the form of tweezers?” This may be a question that a lot of you have in mind. The reason is simple; the Spear was the perfect shape for tweezers!
Normal tweezers are only approximately 8 centimeters long, and can only be handled with your fingertips. In comparison, the Tweezers of Longinus are longer. They are approximately 11 centimeters long and will fit perfectly in your hands.

■Functional design
An incredible amount of thinking and planning was put into the design of the Tweezers of Longinus.
While recreating the form of the Spear of Longinus, the design prevents deformation and damage even when the tips are bent outwards.

■What are they capable of?
The tips of the tweezers are constructed to clamp together with precision.
They can hold on tightly to normal hairs, short hairs, fine and downy hairs and thorns.

■The tweezers will be shipped inside sliding cases that allow users to carry them safely and withdraw them easily for use.


■High quality tweezers made in Japan
The tweezers are crafted using wire electrical discharge machining, a technique which is rarely used for mass produced items. This technique allows for precise machining in 0.001 mm intervals, which is far more precise than even the most skilled tweezer craftspeople. We were able to create an extremely precise grip using these techniques on stainless steel.




The preciseness of the tweezers allows them to pick individual fibers from tissue paper (approx. 15μm). Say goodbye to dull tweezers and those that accidentally cut hairs instead of plucking them. Each piece is crafted in a small-scale workshop in Kanagawa, Japan by wire cut craftsmen who have polished their skills for a long time.



■Limited titanium versions
The Titanium Tweezers of Longinus will only be available through pre-orders in limited quantities.
Titanium is a rare metal that is durable, light, and resistant to rusting, and these titanium tweezers are only available now.
The Titanium Tweezers come in two colors: red and blue. Only 300 pieces of each version are available, and no plans of further production have been made yet. This may be the only chance to purchase them!



■Core-shaped stand
Transparent acrylic stands shaped like the Angel’s cores are also available and perfect for the tweezers.
