    I don't have a decent seam ripper, at least one I like. I plan to be very chummy with my seam ripper, afterall we do tend to spend time together. What is everyone's thoughts on quality seam rippers? Is there one or two that is outstanding?

    Interested to see the answers on this one. I would say a new one! Seems like they get dull fast.....or am I just using it too much? lol.

    I have more seam rippers than anything else. They are all over the place! All good, no special brand.

    I use a seam ripper that is like a scapel. I love it and I think it is much faster than a regular ripper. You do have to careful you don't cut your fabric. When the blades get dull you just put in a new one. I just can't go back to a regular ripper anymore.

    I prefer the cheapest ones the others when I break them and I do alot of that, I feel I wasted my money the simple ones are sharp and thin that is what works for me!

    I like the Fons and Porter, but the blade is finer and sharper and I've broken several. Their pointed blade is very pointy so it lifts stitches easily.

    Clover brands are the thinnest blades and sharpest in my opinion. I use both the round ones and the flat brown ones. Won't have any other in my studio. :)

    Me and "Jack" are best friends. He's been known to sleep with me on occasion. (Sometimes I will be sitting on the couch ripping out a seam and fall asleep. I have this little tiny cream colored one that I got at Joanns forever and ever ago. It is still sharp and I use it alot, the only thing is that little tip with the little red ball broke off and now I don't like how it rips out threads so that little ball must have had some reason for being there. Then I bought one at Walmart its got a long blue handle on it...Hate that one and only use it if I cant find Jack.
