It's well-made, very slim and thin, and very precise. I really want to like it more, but it's also very sharp, almost like a knife, to the point that it catches the paper even laying flat on top of it if you try to move it. Other downsides include no inch markings (don't find the conversion table very useful) and, it's flexible, it bends, which could be a good thing but also makes it feel less like the sturdy steel tool it really is. The sharp corners means you need to keep it inside the plastic sleeve for storage, further taking away from the quality metal feel.

For most uses, I like the Midori Aluminum Multi Ruler more, which does not have these problems (other than the lack of inch markings) and also gives you many more tools to boot. However, it's also costs almost three times more and is not thin enough to be used as a bookmark, so you might still find a place for this steel ruler. Be aware though that as a bookmark it can be slippery and fall out of your book if you're not careful.

I suspect this ruler is really meant for woodworking, and then just branded Kokuyo and marketed as an office supply. I can find identical rulers at 30 cm with different branding, but including the conversion table and "lanyard" hole, sold at hardware stores. I think it's much better for this use than as an office supply.

Nice little ruler, and quite slim at 15mm wide. Looks, feels and performs like a precision instrument rather than something from a kid's desk.

A high quality, no-nonsense ruler that would be at home in a workshop or a pencil case.

This ruler and totally worth the price! It's a great size to keep in your pencil pouch; just be careful because it's sharp! Works great to cut paper or masking tape on the go and it comes with a little sleeve to protect your fingers when you're digging through your pen case. Also great to measure things :P

Beautiful ruler. I got this so I would have a nice ruler that would actually fit into my pencil case and wasn't made out of plastic. It's sharp, performs beautifully and people ask me all the time where they got it because it looks so nice. The sleeve it comes in is also handy because it keeps it clean and prevents it from scratching the inside of my pencil case (the edges are a little on the sharp side).

I love how compact this ruler is! I use mine to make clean notes and quick measurements. The ruler is well-made and sturdy but has movement because it's stainless steel. Because the measurements are in mm/cm, I recommend it for science students or people who otherwise prefer the metric system.

I use this handy little ruler for underlining in books or in my notes. It's perfect! It's just the right size to fit into any standard pencil case, it's lightweight, and it's sturdy. Because it's metal, it sits nicely to the paper and doesn't slide around. I got one of these for a fraction of the cost while living in Korea and had a close call where I thought I lost it, but even at this price it was so worth replacing my original (which I ended up finding, so yay, I have two!). I wouldn't even question getting another one should I (God forbid) lose one.

I really enjoy working with this ruler. As a college student studying economics it really comes in clutch when i have to draw quick graphs during class. A few of my classmates have complemented me on it and asked where i got it! It is small enough to fit inside my pencil case and has a nice feel to it. I keep it in it's cover to avoid getting it scratched as it is quite handsome. It's edges are a bit sharp and i am afraid of bending it out of shape as my pencil case gets thrown around a bit in my backpack but it has kept its shape for longer than a year now. Other than those few concerns, I would really recommend it!
