Super Sharp & Super Safe

The secret is ceramics. This newly redesigned 5-1/2" long precision cutter has a ceramic point that's as sharp as an X-actly knife, stays sharp 11x longer than steel, never rusts, is non-conductive, non-magnetic, non-sparking, chemically inert and is easier to maneuver in intricate cutting patterns. Cuts paper, card stock and more easily while being finger-friendly. Pencil-style ambidextrous durable nylon handle with a textured anti-slip grip and no-roll oval design has a cap and now features a replaceable blade. A boon for crafters, and a blessing for junior crafters.

We Sell Sea Shells

Without making you go to the seashore. Our each is a 3” dia x 6-1/2” tall clear glass jar full of sea shells. You might get periwinkles, what look like augers, or sea snails. (We're freshwater folk here in Chicago, so we're kind of shell-estimating, but we’re sure they’re awfully pretty.) Number depends on size, but you’ll get 15-20 oz of shells, in a jar officially marked “Assorted.” Jars are stoppered with big corks with a little charming raffia around the neck.

Go ahead, check around for prices on shelf-standard hardware. Then order these.
