Great stapler - I know it may seem implausible to get excited about such a functional office product but I did on opening the box! Aesthetic is important to me as much as functionality and this scores top mark on both fronts. It's chunky without being too big and cumbersome - has a good weight and made to a very high standard. It's stapling action is very satisfying and it has no problem with a 50 sheet stack of paper as described. 10/10 from me!
