If you have to go through the process of ripping out a seam you ought to have a lovely tool that feels great in your hand and does the job perfectly while being safe to leave on your table. Here it is! This beautiful wooden seam ripper has a precision stainless steel blade that fits into the handle when not in use. These seam rippers are beautifully made for us by Jim Hokett. They come in a variety of exotic hardwoods and some are slightly thinner than others.
