Item details

These wonderful seam rippers are made from an assortment of woods and with the highest quality metal fittings in either gold or silver tones. A seam ripper is an essential tool for any sewing kit and these handmade wooden ones are simple and easy to use. They makes short work of thread/stitch unpicking and are a pleasure to handle. The hand-turned wooden body fits comfortably in your hand for ease of use. These beautiful but functional double ended seam rippers have a ripper at one end and a stiletto on the other for multi-functional use. The hand-turned wooden body fits comfortably in your hand for ease of use. The sharp, functional end-fittings can be reversed and stored inside the handle, protecting both the sharpness of the blade and any unwary fingers reaching into the sewing box. When reversed the metal end-pieces are smooth and innocuous.

These tools are both beautiful and functional, offering a little bit of luxury to the practical and/or pleasurable task of needlework. Each ripper has a good weight to it due to the density of the wood, giving them a comfortable but substantial feel. All the woods are polished smooth and protected by a layer of beeswax polishing to ensure its durability and enhance the natural beauty of the wood.

You may select your preferred wood from the drop down menu and select either silver or gold toned fittings. To get a sense of what some of the available woods look like see the last photo of this listing. The woods pictured are, from left to right, 4 Paduak, 2 Olive, 1 Oak, 1 Olive, 1 Oak, 1 Redheart, 1 Walnut and 1 Osage Orange. The lower two examples are, from top to bottom, Lignum Vitae and Paduak. Each piece is made to order, hand crafted and polished, so no two pieces are exactly the same but will nonetheless create a striking statement. Keep this stylish tool on display in your craft room, as a pleasurable secret in your sewing kit, or give it as a gift it to a loved one.
