Stapler of the Week Archive- El Casco 85 CT

El Casco 85 CT steel chrome finish

The 85 CT is another amazing El Casco stapler. It may not be the gold plated version, but this chrome plier, like the M1-CA, is quite a statement. My first thought was how closely it resembles the Neva Clog Junior. The 85 CT's construction is a bit more substantial, but it is produced for a luxury market, whereas the Junior was manufactured with utility in mind. The box provides a useful lesson for stapler enthusiasts, because as the art of stapling maybe a universal language, it helps to know the corresponding word for what it is you're speaking.

I've been collecting these for years, when the "eibar" stamp was still on them. The problem with all El Casco gold plated products is the thin plating layer, which degrades in a rather short time.
