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 is a sturdy, well-crafted ruler, that I expect to see me through many, many years of mathematics courses.

Overall, I haven't had much use for this ruler yet, but when I've needed it, it was extremely helpful. The current pre-cal algebra class that I'm taking doesn't have me using it as much as I'd expected, but it should prove useful next term, when I take PreCalc with intros to Trig and Analytic Geometry. I have used it on occasion to measure a few graphs, and it was handy for that. I also use it to keep my place in one of my textbooks that requires me to copy lots of definitions from it. I like that it's small enough to fit in my Nomadic case, but large enough to handle any large scale measuring on paper, when I do need it.

Unexpected bonus of this version of the ruler: The white on black is much easier for me to read than standard rulers, in more varied light conditions. Sometimes my study groups want to meet in coffee houses, and I need all the help I can get with seeing in low light conditions!

Dainty, but very nicely made. White numbers on black background tapered at the edge make it the easiest ruler I own to read markings and to transfer dimensions on to paper.
