Dr. Snip Vasectomy knife


Finally , there is a product that appeals equally to zero population growth enthusiasts, and pocket knife collectors; The Vasectomy Clinic souvenir pocket snips.

This is by far the best piece of schwag that I have ever received. Don’t get me wrong, I love those little light-up superballs, folding binoculars and stress-reducers that you gather up at trade shows, but rarely do I feel compelled to show one to anybody once the event is over. This is schwag with content.


Obtaining your knife

As far as I know, to get a knife, you need to go under the knife. Although, I’m sure that if you went into the clinic and asked for one, they would oblige.

If you are thinking about getting snipped yourself, I would highly reccomend Dr. snip. He obviously loves his job, and really knows his stuff, and your stuff. Here is a teste-monial from another satisfied customer.

My own experience with Dr. Snip was surprisingly good. I was certainly a little nervous, I am not used to having a strange man handle my scrotum, let alone cut it open. Although he was quite willing to keep me informed of exactly what he was doing during the procedure, Now I am going to coterize your vas, you may smell something burning…, I chose to engage in small talk as a diversion instead. It turns out that the doc was a pilot, and he was very interested in the gyroplane fllight training that I was taking at the time.

Before I knew it, it was over. and No, my voice didn’t rise 2 octives as a result of the surgery.

    umm, so, okay.. like where’d ya get it? did you go to dr snip for your own emasculation?? or did skilled bonobo chimpanzaa do i t with his teeth?

  2. Steven Says:

    Well, it’s a real Seattle Clinic. I don’t see a “store” link on their website. I’m assuming he actually got fixed and was given it for being still on the cutting block, so to speak. More importantly, since I also live in Seattle, I wonder how odd they would think I was if I walked in and simply asked for a knife.

    It is *damn* cool…

  3. Ken Says:


    No, no. That’s not what schwag means. Schwag is is bunk weed. Schwag is the opposite of dank. Kids these days.

  4. Ian Says:

    Bunk as in “Crap” (ie. that squashed flat, brown, smells like it was shipped in a gas tank, “mexican” ragweed that you buy when no one has the “kind” buds for sale.). But in this case Schwag does apply as it is also synomynous with “Crap”.
    Brilliant advertising and hardly fitting the category of Schwag, imo.


  5. Jeffy Says:

    I think they meant “swag”, as opposed to “schwag”.


    Because, after all, having your very own vasectomy shears is pretty damn cool.

    Cool! Guys who are willing to be snipped are so awesome and responsible.

  9. budz Says:

    ROFL, that’s great !! :)

  10. Another Internet Know-it-all Says:

    In this case, “schwag” is a variant of “swag”. I’ve picked up plenty of both at various expos.

    If you’ll scroll down a bit in the first “crappy pot” urban dictionary link, you will see an entry for the crappy souvenier meaning.

    But yeah, that schwag rules. Someone has an awesome sense of humour.

  11. Brian Says:

    Got mine 3 years ago – good ‘ol “Chick” Wilson… The website is http://www.drsnip.com. Thinking I was brave through the procedure, I got up and noticed the wax paper they lay out on the patient table had two holes sweated right through it, each one of them corresponding to the location of either one of my buttocks.

  12. Srsly Says:

    Wait, you only get one of these when you GET a vasectomy?? It’s not being handed out at some strange health-care trade show or something?

  13. alex Says:

    Well, Dr. Snip did an okay job on me, too. The knife I got was all stainless with a laser-etched logo, but otherwise looks the same. And it was so fabulous to ditch the various icky forms of birth control….

    The most frustrating thing was finding someone who would perform a vasectomy on fairly short notice–most clinics insisted on counseling and a mandatory waiting period. Seattle is fairly liberal compared to some other areas; in Virginia it is actually illegal to sterilize a childless male under a certain age.

  14. Todd Says:

    Does anyone know if there is a “used” market for these? Perhaps on E-Bay? I am on a budget and would like to keep my expenditure as low as possible.

  15. JeffRo Says:

    I went to another clinic, and things turned out great, but I sure didn’t get any tchotchkas on the way out the door, other than two little cups that I needed to return to be sure “everything is OK.” Hello, shouldn’t we have an idea of that before I leave the O.R.?

  16. Crazy_Dave Says:

    I so need one of these, I have already been snipped, so I am woundering if I can get the Knife?

    Just remember to get your pain pills filled out BEFORE the operation. I have NEVER been in such pain when the local wore off.

  17. Been Cut Says:

    I’ve been cut, I did it through a Planned Parenthood clinic in CA after a 30 day waiting period (legal required, but possible to waive with some extra documentation). No neat knife, but you can’t beat the price at Planned Parenthood. Makes me wonder if I can order the knife though…

    As far as the little cups, it takes weeks to get all the sperm out of your vas, so its not that possible to check and make sure you’re sterile before you leave the clinic.

  18. Miranda JOhnson Says:

    I few years back after having our third child I remember my wife Roberta and I had lengthy discussions about the “Pro’s & Cons” of vasectomies. We talked about all of the other ways out there to prevent future pregnancies and the vasectomy won with hands down.

    I remember after having gone through the process and was still able to walk, talk and yes even run I felt proud. But how do you tell someone what you have just experienced? I mean at social gatherings one can’t approach strangers and explain why you are walking with a slight limp.

    Our bumper stickers and or lapel pin has opened the door to discussion and or broken the ice.

  19. Wayne Says:

    Just had a vasectomy from Dr. Snip’s formidable Eastside (Bellevue/Issaquah) competition. Dr Weissman did a great job. Quick, and relatively painless. He kept me laughing with his dry sense of humor and before I knew it, it was over. The burning smell (my boys are on fire!) made me a little sick but I knew it was coming.

    Not that is was a determining factor but, boy, does Dr. Snip’s Website suck! With all the money I’m sure he’s making you’d think he’d redesign that circa 1995 piece of crap.

  20. Will Merydith Says:

    That *is* the best swag I’ve ever seen. Hysterical. You’re like the 5th guy I know to get snipped this year. Must be my age bracket.

  21. William Says:

    My wife, who has passed the recommended age for “the pill” suggested that if I wanted to stop using a condom, I should go talk to Dr. Snip (or one of his ilk).

    This seems logical to me since I already have a “perfect” 5 year old boy and a (pre-neutered) 1 year old male Brittany “puppy”, so there is plenty of extra testosterone around the house. Still, I am a bit reluctant. The “boys” and I have had a great run for over 40 years and we are still “going strong”. :)

    As an extra incentive, my wife said, “If you get that for me for Christmas, that’s all I want.” Well, that is a heck of a lot less expensive than new diamond stud earrings! I am smart enough to realize that I will have to get her “something else” along with a snip, but this will make a pretty nice gift (I just need to figure out how to wrap it).

    I am still a bit anxious about it, not the procedure per say, but the finality of it all. It’s definitely a milestone. Wish me luck.

    Can u sue a doctor that did a visectomy elegally? I had it happen to me when I was 8 yers old in Im 42 now…he made me sign the paper work or said I’d die if he didn’t remove my appendix.. He tied it into surgery when he removed my apendix.. I signed the papers even though I knew he was going to do a visectomy.. Their was no 30 waiting period that I went thew…. I was put in 1 day and released the next… I know my mom had him do it..but I was powerless to do nothing about it.. Or die so the doctor said..

  26. tilakahuja Says:

    It is effective information. Let’s face it: vasectomy is such an attractive option for men because it completely eliminates the hassle involved with contraceptives. But considering the consequences involved with getting a vasectomy, many are driven to ask the question: Are there other male birth control methods out there besides vasectomies and condoms? Answers: Vasectomy is best method and off course control till certain stage.

  27. renu Says:

    Ah awesome information on vasectomy. I had a vasectomy; I no longer have a strong ejaculation. Now it just flows out and does not shoot out. Not even a spurt. Can there be something done to fix this?
