I've always used Tamiya's sprue cutter and never used toenail
clipper for cutting parts off the sprue tree before, so I
have no basis for comparison. But the sprue cutter can still
be too big sometimes when the sprue tree doesn't leave enough
space for the cutter, so one would need to clip the part off
the tree with some of the sprue connector and then clip or cut
the excess connector off.
