What can I say about a staple? The only noticeable thing is they are not noticeable, which is what a staple should be. They pierce, fold, and unfold on demand, but that may be a function of my stapler too, and are the same grey color I have been used to since I was born. Every staple is identical to its 4999 companions in the box. It may take me 50 years to get through a box of 5000 staples at home so this is my one and only review of staples.
