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