Have you ever thought about why adhesive tape dispensers are so heavy? Well if they weren’t so weighty you wouldn’t be able to easily tear off tape using one hand. Simple, and for decades we’ve been plagued with this issue. The problem stems from the design of the saw-toothed blade, especially as it gets duller and ends up stretching the tape instead of cutting it. Well the Nichiban tape company in Japan has said enough is enough and have come up with the Nichiban Liner Beauty [Translation]. The Liner Beauty has a patented scalloped blade that makes tearing off a piece of tape with one-hand much easier, and it requires less force. Best of all it works with normal Sellotape.
By making it easier to tear off tape, the tape dispenser itself has been redesigned as it doesn’t need all that space inside for lead bars or piles of sand to stop it sliding across the desk. The result, the office people of the world will be happier and world peace is bound to follow, all because of a new adhesive tape dispenser. ¥2,310 (~US$25) [Via TechOn!]
Simple and slim design in harmony with the interior. Can be used with one hand operation Weight of the metal sheet with non-slip is also difficult to move off the tape. E dge of a new sensation. From the jagged edge can be cut with less force. Cut the line beauty. The jagged edge patent-pending design is not (sic) new.
