I bought some of those back in the 70s but they weren't billed as seam rippers but as coupon clippers. They were very sharp but got dull with all the coupons I clipped. I haven't seem them for sale since then.

It looks familiar. I think I had one back in the 60s or 70s. I don't have it anymore.

I have a couple of those - they were advertised for cutting coupons from newspapers or magazines. They do work well as seam rippers.

No - not seen that one. Is it as good a friend as mine is?

It does an amazing job when ripping the seams out of jeans legs or upholstry - because it actually cuts the threads (with it's razor like edge) that pop the threads like other rippers do. You do have to be careful because it will slice your fabric too - but for heavy duty jobs - it is the best thing ever

Well, now that you've told us about it - I want one, too. Undoing the seams on jeans is not one of my favorite activities.

The one that was shown doesn't look quite as durable/strong as the one you have.

It almost looks like a box cutter of sorts.

Looks like the modern version of the tiny knife they sell for seam ripping now....
