Verified Purchase
This ruler is ten times cuter than the pictures let it seem! It is about 2 centimeters wide when unfolded, which gives it a really sleek and cute profile. The graduations are crisp, and the other side with the zero directly against the edge is GENIUS, no other ruler I can find does this.

The protractor at the hinge is pretty handy. It's not really meant as a measurement tool (error would be almost 10 degrees on any reading), but it helps you draw and eyeball 15deg increment angles in a snap! You'll need good eyeballs and lighting however because the brown angle graduations lack a little contrast. Minus 0.1 out of 5 for such a tiny oversight.

I only wish the hinge would click at every 15 degree increment, which would also mean click into place once fully folded out. I'll only take off 0.2 because of that, though, because this is not really a defect of this product. The protractor already works really well and the hinge feels rock solid.

In summary, this stylish little buddy will fulfill your every need for a ruler. Good for working with common angles, for drawing lines, for measuring at edges, and for feeling like a ninja when you swing it open! Overall rating 4.7/5, gladly rounded up!

Love this ruler! It is metric which is difficult to find in the backwards U. S. It is metal, and therefore rigid enough to draw a truly straight line on when extended to its full length. Being made of aluminum the difference in weight between this and the (http://www.jetpens.com/Sonic-Nobirura-16-30-cm-Extendable-Ruler-Clear-Dark/p d/11072) Sonic Nobirura is negligible. This ruler now takes its place inside my Nomadic bag (http://www.jetpens.com/Nomadic-PE-08-Easy-Classification-Pencil-Case-Black/ pd/5909). A nice feature I was not aware of when I purchased the ruler is the angle measurements on the rivet the two halves pivot on. These measurements are not the most accurate, but can be handy.
I would have given five stars instead of four if the corners had been rounded. I am concerned that they may tear my bag over time. The corners also cause me some concern the few times I put the ruler in a dress shirt pocket.

This ruler is one of the sexiest, most sleek-looking rulers I have ever used. It also gets the job done very, very well. It's precise, and I feel like the paint on the aluminum ruler will not fall off for a long, long time to come. That said, however, I do have 2 small complaints: First, the aluminum is chunky at one end (the end on the joint). This is due to unpolished aluminum, whereas if you take a look at the other end, the aluminum is very smooth and polished. Second, the protractor on the joint is very inaccurate (even more than it's supposed to be). The arrow that indicated the angle was printed more left than it's supposed to be, which makes it very difficult to get even a mediocre angle. However, it's still a very compact, precise (only for the measurements of length, not angle), sexy ruler, and has now found a place in my pencil case.

PERFECT for art pouches. Its so well put together and thought out. It has handy angle measurements on that like silver middle circle part that make it easy to draw geometric shapes and stuff of the sort. Very pleased.
