One end features a small seam ripper that quickly cuts through the stitches on sewing projects requiring alteration or repair. The other end features a stiletto/tailor's awl, useful for precisely manipulating fabric or feeding small swatches through the sewing machine.

Great!
It is exactly what I was needing and I can use my ergonomic wood holder again!! I don’t do woodworking but I’m a quilter and bought my original holder at a quilt show. So happy to have found the replacement metal parts on your site. I saved your info to share with others

Worked well
I had a wooden "holder" for my ripper and the point broke off. This fit perfectly in my pretty wooden case. Thanks for actually upgrading my old seam ripper

Springs
The kits work very well, after the spring insertion I was able to insert them with one of the cutters. I ordered spare springs from another company and the are not springy like the originals. I called the people and they use a different company to make there springs. they I bent 6 of them to get one to work . I took 2 out of the kit and they went in no problem...cannot find the original springs.any where..

Quick and fun.
Just finished two of these, one for my mother-in-law and one for a friend. Great little project and fun to do. I had no issues with assembly. Quick tip: use the ripper or stiletto to insert the retaining sheath. Wrap it around and push it in. Love how they turned out.

Great for the quilters or seamstress in your life. My wife is a quilter. Haven't tried making this yet (turning the handle and putting it together), so jury is still out on how it works.

I like having the seam ripper and stiletto together. I don’t have to go and hunt for one or the other.

Sounds like a good product. Hope it is as good as it says.
Marilyn F on Jan 26, 2019
This is a good seller as it is a very useful tool for the serious seamstress or quilter. I have made one for my wife and several for her friends who sew. They like them so much that I now make them for sale on Etsy.

Quick and easy project and a nice Christmas gift.
Christopher K on Nov 13, 2018
I purchased a wooden seam ripper year ago, one side a large seam ripper, one side an average sized one. They have since dulled and I needed a replacement insert. I was happy to find the stiletto/seam ripper combo as I did not care for the large seam ripper insert on my last one - this, therefore, is a great alternative for me!

what size mandrel do I need?
Allen on Dec 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I used a between centers mandrel with seam ripper bushings and mine turned out great.
Are replacement springs available?
John H on Jul 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not that I can find without buying another kit.
do you need a pen press to put the seam ripper together?
Clare C on Jul 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I was able to assemble my seam ripper with a vise with now problem. The Selves, once started, can be easily pressed into the body with hand pressure and a small, flat surface. Hope this helps 😎
do you make these beautiful seam rippers? I don't want a kit because I have no experience in woodwork
Jan B on Dec 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If you you have access to a wood turning lathe they are easy to make.I gave one to my wife who is a seamstress and she in turn gave some that I made to her students who were in her sewing class. I have some at a consignment shop right now.
Can I purchase just the keeper springs?
Jimmy W on Sep 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I actually do not know since I purchased the whole set because I needed the ripper that I could not find separately anywhere.
