Super Clip Brass or Stainless 10 pcs

 New!!! We now have the Super Clip in both brass (brass plated steel) and stainless steel. Choose stainless for that modern look; brass for vintage!

Is it possible to become obsessed over a paper clip? We didn't think so, until we found this one. It's made by a Japanese company that specializes in clips of all kinds - pen clips, paper clips, potato chip bag clips, big clips, tiny clips. They call this one the "push clip" because of the small dome you press on to open its jaws (sorry, we could not think of a better way to describe it). Once opened, you can slide the clip over the edge of a stack of paper to hold them together.

But actually, it's much more than just a lowly paper clip, and the name doesn't do it justice - so we call it the "Super Clip". It's an excellent bookmark for journals, notebooks and books. It is small, easily handled and unobtrusive. Beyond that, you could use it to clip money or anything else flat that needs to be pinched together. You could also use it as a paper clip, but it's really too nice for that.

It's made of a super-smooth stainless steel; its grip is not too strong and not too weak and it will not mar or tear delicate papers like Tomoe River. Finally, it is very well made and you can use it over and over without wearing out its springy quality.

Call us crazy, but we are always looking for more ways to use these things!

Comes in packs of 10. Made in Japan.

  1. A revolution and a revelation 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Dec 2014

    Most people overlook the design of things they use often but which they judge mundane. "If it works, don't fix it", you can hear them say -- and I hate that saying. Paper clips are perhaps the best example of that. "I'm in a rush, I just want to hold this stack of paper, any silly old piece of metal will do!"

    Little do they know that a lot of cleverness can go into something as seemingly boring as a paperclip. Not only is it clever, but it is very intuitive, too. A hallmark of a successful design.

    As soon as I grabbed one, I squeezed that metallic dome which just begs to be squeezed, and just like that it opens its little mouth and I understand its purpose. I can't even begin to imagine how much research, design and prototyping went into perfecting this utterly satisfying metal buckling action.

    It makes a beautiful metallic pop sound, similar to those pressure-sealed bottle caps I had so much fun playing with when I was younger. As the upper metallic lip lifts, it leaves a length of the bottom lip protruding so you can rest the paper on it, eliminating the need to align the paper and the clip as if threading a needle. When you release the button, the clip hugs the paper with JUST the right amount force so that you can ONLY slide it purposefully.

    It's as if a friend's invisible hand is holding your paper for you. I wouldn't be surprised if the thickness and shape of the material is purposefully designed to maintain this exact amount of force in function of the thickness of the stack it holds -- as the stack gets bigger, the metal bends more, and using the metal's Young modulus and the piece's thickness... Maybe they did that, maybe not, but it feels like everything is calculated and engineered to perfection.

    Needless to say, I will be looking for places to use those clips!

  4. Perfect clip 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th May 2014

    I love how simple these clips are. They work very well and are a perfect size to hold a few pages with ease. I use them as bookmarks in journals as well. $3 for 5 clips is a great value. Ill be ordering another pack of them when they are back in stock.
