OIC No. 1 Gem Clips are basically your ordinary paper clips. They are pretty decent, as they can hold large amounts of paper at once. It's pretty inpressive for them, as they are small. The paper clips are pretty durable, as they don't break easily, like many of the other office paper clips that I usually get. They are flexible too, so you can carry large amounts of paper, or small amounts, and no matter what, they will all hold together without falling out, which is always an advantage. The paper clips are of decent quality. They're just made of your ordinary metal, and bend around easily. When you're bending them, just make sure you don't bend them too much, as they can break. There are one hundred of them in a package, which is quite enough. They usually last for a long time, so I only have to go back to the store to get more once every two or three months. I usually use them to hold together my office papers, and even some of my more important papers. They are very reliable, and I would recommend buying them. Overall, this is a pretty well made office product.
