why this product

Simplicity was the ultimate sophistication in the days of da Vinci. Things in Italy are still pretty much the same now - the spaghetti, the wine, the shoes. Even the office accessories. When you work in a field where plenty of paper is coming at you, a staple remover is useful for one main reason: it lets you spend as little time as possible thinking about, well, removing staples. Like lighting a cigarette or pulling cash from your wallet, the small actions we perform routinely each day should take zero effort. Pull, snap, done. In an ideal world, menial tasks all happen so quickly, you can't even remember how they got done. Sketch of the pinch style staple remover shows how the incisor works with the lower plate to open staples and easily pry them out of their situation This staple remover gets any staple out of just about anything in less than 5 seconds. Even the large staples used in packing boxes can be taken out clean (and you don't have to fist punch the box). Nickelated iron makes up the body of this tool, as well as hard nickelated steel for the beak and teeth. The pinch handle is easy to hold and work with your fingers. This staple remover comes with a lifetime guarantee. Made by a company since 1958 that is also responsible for the metal plier stapler and glue you can eat. 

use & care

A large document, a packing box, a notebook. Settle the incisor of the staple remover into the staple you want to take out, and simply clamp the pliers together. Larger staples may require a bit more pressure but are easily handled. The manufacturer offers a lifetime replacement against any manufacturing defects.

production & design

These staple removers were launched in 1958 by a company of two Italian families who have been collaborating harmoniously for 89 years. Each stapler is made from raw materials sourced only in European countries, mostly Germany and Italy. Some of the machines used to make these tools were designed by the manufacturer themselves.
