is that they cut their toenails with diagonal pliers.
Dikes, wire cutters, diagonal side cutting pliers, all the same tool. Men have used these to cut their toenails ever since they were invented, probably by a blacksmith who looked at whatever it is they use to shoe horses and designed something smalller, yet similar to cut mens toenails with.
Now men generally cut their toenails privately. Rare is the man that performs this hygenetic chore in front of his wife and if he does, you can bet your boots that if he does this in front of his wife he will use the kind of clippers thay sell at a drug store.
On the other hand, if his spouse is not around, he will probably go straight to the toolbox and get out the diagonal pliers and whack away.
Lord help the poor bastard that gets caught by his wife trimming his hooves with them, though.
Women get all wierded out if they come across a man doing this with such a tool.
It has caused a number of out and out conniption fits on the part of the woman and the man after being subjected to such a fit makes damned good and sure he doesn't get caught a second time.
I do not know why this is, but it is true.
