When you work in a field where paper is constantly coming at you, a staple remover is useful for one main reason: it lets you spend as little effort as possible thinking about, well, removing staples. Like lighting a cigarette or pulling cash from your wallet, the small actions we perform routinely each day should take zero time or thought. Pull, snap, finished. In an ideal world, menial tasks all happen so quickly, you can't even remember how they got done.

This staple remover gets any staple out of just about anything in less than 5 seconds. Even the large staples used in packing boxes can be taken out clean (and you don't have to fist punch the box).
Nickelated iron makes up the body of this tool, as well as hard nickelated steel for the beak and teeth. It also has a plier handle that takes the strain out of pulling staples. It's strong, so you don't have to be.
A large document, a packing box, a notebook. Settle the incisor of the staple remover into the staple you want to take out, and simply clamp the pliers together. Larger staples may require a bit more pressure.
The manufacturer offers a lifetime replacement against any manufacturing defects.
These staple removers were launched in 1958. Two Italian families who have been collaborating harmoniously for 89 years manufacture it and a dozen other office supplies well known throughout Europe and the US for their quality and aesthetic.
Each stapler is made from raw materials sourced only in European countries, mostly Germany and Italy. Some of the machines used to make these tools were designed by the manufacturer themselves.
