This is an awesome piece...
This is an awesome piece of design, perfect for when you have a stray thread
hanging off your clothes, or a tricky-to-open package while you're out and don't
have scissors handy (who normally does?).
Like another reviewer said, you have to squeeze the blades together to close it.
I've seen a few 1 star reviews complaining that it was broken and doesn't close,
but it really does work. You just have to know the trick to it and it's great.
