I am not sure about Made In Korea products like this stapler but I do know they make good cars and mobile phones there! I am so amazed that I had this stapler for 6 years in the office and it still is in good working condition. I have dropped this stapler so many times on the concrete floor and it still works just fine and is still is intact. It is not as heavy as other heavy duty staplers I have used in the past. It’s like lifting a 500 ml bottle of drinking water. Apart from its light-weight feature, it also has a rubber sole for anti-skid effect, maybe it doesn’t slide off from the table and land on your foot…LOL! The unit comes in variety of colors and I got a lavender one. The others in the office are black, red, beige, cream, and red. It uses the big staple wire cartridge and can accommodate 1 long cartridge only.
I will definitely recommend this stapler to other folks who work in the Purchasing unit of their companies. It is really a good brand. As for the price, I am not sure since this is company issued.
