Many years ago (~20-25),...

Many years ago (~20-25), I saw a similar tool in my father's desk drawer at
work. Since that moment, I had been obsessed with finding one, but my searches
were generally fruitless. Fast forward to 3+ years ago, when I got a job that
happens to require a boatload of paper-clipping. Personally, I can't stand wire
paper clips for actual paper clipping, but staples wouldn't do. I searched
again, as I had many times before, and somewhat miraculously found this. I
purchased one to keep in my office and one at home, plus some extra refill packs
(HIGHLY RECOMMENDED). It is perfection. Works consistently every time for the
past 3+ years, hundreds of clippings per month. It will mis-fire if you don't
plant your thumb properly or don't guide the clipper far enough onto the edge of
the paper, but once you initially learn that, you rarely ever make that mistake
again. It is also very satisfying for your office gadget nerdery, without taking
up pointless desk space. I recommend it very highly.
