The Best Staplers

Few things on your desk can recreate the satisfying “chlunk…chlunk…chlunk…” experience of a well-balanced stapler. The ability to fasten multiple sheets of paper together with a thin metal wire is a true marvel of engineering and not something we should take for granted. With few moving parts, the utilitarian stapler performs it duties with speed and efficiency seldom seen in more contemporary tools. Oh, but perform it does. With nary a battery or power cord in sight the stapler is limited only by your ambition, and possibly staple supply.
