A fantastic plier stapler if I've ever seen one, and I've seen a few to date. Perhaps you've seen one on the pharmacy or take out-counter, the plier stapler is a favorite of counter help and shipping clerks across the world. Still available for purchase, the Ace Clipper uses a particular type of staple, as evident on the stamped writing on the handle. I try to stay away from staplers that require me to buy special staples, but there's so much going on when one uses the Ace Clipper. Most staplers only hinge at the tail, whereas the Ace Clipper pivots around 5 separate hinge points. I think that's pretty cool.
