This is one of those “easy” staplers that requires less force/muscle power to use. I don’t really think about how difficult some staplers can be when you’re trying to mash 20 pages together until I try to use one, because with this stapler there is very little effort. It has a pretty hip design also, with a full metal and silicone body instead of plastic parts. It fits in with the white office supply theme I have going on at my desk, and overall it’s a 10/10 would buy again.
