This stapler is amazing! It really makes easy work of stapling documents. Prior to using this stapler, I only have used the standard office staplers. You know...the kind that you have to use all of your body weight to press the staple through 5+ sheets of paper, and then you probably bent the staple and have to start over anyway. Yeah, I'm kind of sick of that kind of stapler. I really have had very minimal experience with a plier style stapler before, so I couldn't even remember what to expect. I recieved this stapler as a sample to review and immediately had to try it out. There was the stapler and a box of 1000 staples in the package. The first thing I noticed was that the stapler is a bit heavy in your hand. This might be hindering to older folks with less strength in their hands. I did not find it to be too heavy for me to use, however. The next thing I noticed was that there were no instructions on how to insert the staples. I figured out how to insert the staples fairly easily, but some people might have difficulty with it, so I think there should be instructions included. Once I had the staples inserted, I easily stapled the piece of paper that came in the box (not instructions, just a letter). I wanted to see how well it would staple through many pieces of paper, so I took a magazine and it was super easy to staple through it. Then, I wanted to see more, so I folded the magazine in half and stapled it to itself. There was no more effort to do that, than there was to staple one piece of paper. However, I don't think I could have stapled much more, but that is only due to the length of the staple. Much more, and the staple wouldn't be able to bend closed. I am highly impressed with this stapler, though. I tested it to it furthest limits, and it performed with ease. I would 100% recommend this stapler.

**Disclaimer**....I received this product for free from Viewpoints in exchange for my honest and unbiased review, which I have given.

This stapler works great for large and small jobs. It is pretty easy to use, and get staple through a large stack of papers with ease. I also love the fact that it comes in several colors. I received the white, which works well for me and what I have going on in my office. I love the all metal construction. It feels like it will last a long time and through a lot of uses. It feel pretty sturdy as well. Now there are a few cons to add to this list. The most major con is that it really a pain to load up. It has a ten spring that you have to place just right and then lock into place. It sounds simple, but it takes some getting used to especially when you are loading a whole ream of staples. Also, unlike a lot of office staplers you have to hold your papers in one hand the stapler in the other. Most of the time with my normal stapler I can just rest the stack of papers on a desk and then neatly use the stapler to get it just right int he corner. Because the two handed approach I don't feel like this staples very neatly, and it hard to line up in the right spot. Finally, the storage of the stapler is awkward. It has to be lying down and that takes up more space then a normal stapler too. Overall I think the pros out weigh the cons, and I will continue to use this stapler for all the big jobs that I have. A few sheet job, especially one that I am sending out, I will probably use my trusted old stapler.

    Comments about Rapid K1 Classic Pliers Stapler:

    I have to admit, when I got the stapler out of the box I was a little skeptic. This thing looks more like an UFO than a stapler.... But as soon as I used it I was completely sold. I work as desk clerk at a motel so doing paper work is every day routine. And since I don't use a stapler very often at home, I took it to work so I can actually use it every day, multiple times. I am really impressed. It might look difficult to use but in reality it takes less then half of effort you put in using a traditional stapler. Really easy to use and not very heavy. And guess what: my coworkers like it so much that they don't want to give it back!

        I am in love with this!!! I use on a personal level for home crafting projects and as well as my business for real estate transactions. The ease of using this is awesome, it holds everything I have used it for - it keeps it together, I have been doing some home projects with material, keeps it together, and I have used for as little as 6 sheets of paper to as much as 20 pages and still holds together. The staples do not jam as I have found they do in the others I have tried. I highly recommend this product - a great lasting stapeler!!

        Comments about Rapid K1 Classic Pliers Stapler:

        I was impressed with the quality and construction of this stapler. Easy to hold and use. However, I found that the staples would sometimes mangle when only stapling two or three pieces of paper together. This is obviously designed for much larger projects. Also, the stapler came with absolutely no instructions whatsoever, so first-time loading was a bit challenging if you're not used to this kind of stapler. I think this stapler is more suited for an office environment rather than home use.

        Comments about Rapid K1 Classic Pliers Stapler:

        I received the K1 Retro Stapleing Plier White in return for an honest unbias review.
        Compared to other simular staplers the K1 Retro Stapler works great, I've stapled 25+ pages many times and never jammed up.
        Saves me time on trying to pull out staples that only went half way through the stack.
        I would buy thr K1 Stapler again but I think this one will last a long time. The only thing I would change is the spring were the staples go I would make a little stronger.
        I would recommend the K 1 Stapler to any one that has jobs where they have thick paper or large stacks where a regular stapler will not do the job.

        The product is wonderful and very effective at stapling papers. It is not unwieldy, although it is a tad bit bulky, and you don't feel like it will fall out of your hand. It can be a bit tricky trying to learn to put the staples into the stapler for the first time, but once you get the hang of that, everything is smooth sailing.

        Comments about Rapid K1 Classic Pliers Stapler:

        The only con I have for this stapler is how to initially open the unit to insert the staples. The picture on the box just shows an arrow pulling back to open the unit. It looks like the entire metal piece that the staplers rest on will pull out. It won't budge. The circular tab must be pushed inward and then upward to release it from the stapler catch on the bottom of the fixed stapler guide.

        I like that the stapler can be stood on its end. Having color options are nice - the white color matches my desk. I assemble tax returns for clients and the stapler works better than my electric stapler on high page-count returns. You can also adjust the direction the staple legs go on the back side of the paper - flaring inward or outward.

            Comments about Rapid K1 Classic Pliers Stapler:

            I have never used this type of stapler before using the Rapid K1 Retro Classic stapling plier. I love staplers, I'm one of those people who loves office products way too much. I own 4 of the regular kind of staplers. They do an o.k. job most of the time but don't come close to this stapling plier

            When I removed the Rapid K1 Retro Classic from the box I was first impressed with it's design and style. This is a good looking stapler in a gorgeous, crisp, glossy white. It has a retro but modern look to it. It feels solid, and looks well made. It was easy to load with high capacity 5/16" staples.

            Looking over the box, I see an image on the back of the stapler box indicating that the 5/16" staples will staple 10-50 sheets of paper. I have smallish, lady hands, and while the Rapid K1 stapler fits in them well, I was concerned that I would not be able to exert the pressure needed to staple through 50 sheets of paper.
            I accepted the challenge and looked for 50 sheets to staple. I settled on a small pad of sticky notes that would be easy to count. The Rapid K1 Retro Classic stapled 50 sheets of paper with ease, and not too much hand pressure. Other staplers you have to lean on to get them to staple more than a few sheets, not this stapler. I had some heavy cardstock paper and it stapled though 10 sheets of that just as easily as paper.
            I do a lot of crafting and shipping, this stapler is going to save me so much time and effort. I used to have to pick out staples that did not go all the way through when I was trying to staple cardstock labels to bags and packages. That is not going to be a problem any longer with this stapler.

            The Rapid K1 Classic Retro stapling plier honestly surprised me with how well it works and how easy it is to use. It gets the job done, the bonus is that it's also nice to look at too.

              I was hesitant when I first received the Rapid Classic K1 Stapling Pliers to use and evaluate. I had never used anything other than a standard stapler and didn't think I would like the plier design. I was wrong! It wa easy to use, stapled multiple sheets with ease and it is quite well built. I stapled gift bags, plastic sheeting, and stacks and stacks of papers. I found myself looking for ways to use it!

              I started using this stapler for small things inside the home, stapling the kids homework and tax items and making small books with the kids and it's been able to handle all of them with ease. Well, my husband saw it and loved it to and has since taken it to work as he gets more use from it than I do. He loves it, he says it's by far the best stapler he has used and it's been able to handle 50 sheet bundles with ease. We are buying another for home use now that he has claimed it for work. Great stapler, I highly recommend it. My only issue with it is that it's a little difficult to push the spring back in to pin it closed. Otherwise it's great.

                Comments about Rapid K1 Classic Pliers Stapler:

                This stapler is wonderful. It works great on thicker materials and lots of paper. It staples through cardboard and the entire newspaper with ease. And it is very lightweight and easy to load for how strong it is.

                  Comments about Rapid K1 Classic Pliers Stapler:

                  The first thing I noticed about this stapler was the weight. It's quite hefty but I can tell it's also quite durable. The second thing I noticed immediately was the sharp edges on the handles..as if they weren't smoothed completely. This could be a problem for people who have large stapling jobs as it actually hurts my hand in certain spots. Because I have small hands it's not as ergonomic for me and if I had a lot of work to do, as well as another stapler with this one..I would probably use the other one. I do like the fact the staples come out quick and straight with no issues and it was very easy to load. I like the quality all-in-all but it's simply not meant for all hand sizes.

                  I work in an architecture firm and deal with lots of paper documents and drawings. I often have to staple large bundles of paper together, and the previous stapler I had to use was really awkward and I had to use a lot of force to get the staple through the entire bundle of paper. These Rapid Pliers are much easier to use - firstly, I can hold it freely in one hand (my previous stapler had to be resting on the desk), and secondly, I don't need to exert a lot of force to get the staple through the entire stack of papers. It is almost effortless. I'm very pleased with this stapler.
