    Meet James the ripper

    My husband made the handle on his metal lathe. It is really comfortable to hold in my small hands.

    Jack and Jill Ripper (his cousins) now live in New York.

    I'm happy with mine, and thanks again.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Wow, that's cool. I am planning to order those blades so my DH can make handles for me. DH has wood lathes.

    You are sew fortunate! He did a wonderful job, and it looks like it can be sew comfortable (such as it is).

    What a cool seam ripper - my husband does that kind of work too - aren't we lucky to have such clever husbands.

    I am very pleased to hear James's cousins are doing well in their new home. My husband and I are also happy you like
    your rippers.

    That DOES look lethal. I call all of my three F&P rippers by the name of Jack too. They like to play hide and seek!!
