Stapler of the Week Archive- Swingline 99

Swingline 99 two tone drab olive plastic and chrome finish

This little hand-held stapler came to me from some friends in the electronic auction ether. This model is still sold today, albiet with less appealing design and color. I'm not altogether to sure I like current stapler design. As more and more parts become plastic and "ergonomically designed," I'm less inclined to look at them. But here, the Swingline 99 fits perfectly in one's palm and is very much made of plastic. I think I can afford to contradict myself occassionally when the stapler is this cool.
