Stapler of the Week Archive- Novus B 7

Novus B 7 steel chrome, cream and gold finish
For your stapling pleasure, I present to you another simple yet elegant example from the Novus company.  The B 7 mirrors the design of the B 22 including the push button spring action loading.  The color scheme is a bit warmer than the blue and grey of the B 22 and coincidentally, it matches the corrosion of the steel.  Sometimes these happy accidents happen.

Stapler of the Week Archive- Markwell "SX" Pacemaker

Markwell "SX" Pacemaker steel and rubber

Markwell "SX" Pacemaker box cardboard and paper

Markwell produced staplers with lettered staple size classifications and the "SX" Pacemaker marks another staple size not yet featured here.  It has some great ergonomic features from back when ergonomics were just called good design.  The base is completely rubber so there's no worry about this stapler sliding anywhere.  There is a  wedge-shaped plunger that makes stapling a pleasure.  I don't know if Markwell still honors its free service claim cited on the box but this stapler promises to keep the pace for years to come.
