Pinchers
Pinchers Pinch"ers, n. pl. [From {Pinch}.] An instrument having two handles and two grasping jaws working on a pivot; -- used for griping things to be held fast, drawing nails, etc. [1913 Webster]

Note: This spelling is preferable to pincers, both on account of its derivation from the English pinch, and because it represents the common pronunciation. [1913 Webster]
