In Japan the word for the Hotchkiss Stapler is called ????, ruffly translated hochikisu. These little gems were created in the late 1800's (Hotchkiss No 1).
Above is the Hotchkiss number 3A.
I picked this one up off of Esty and probably payed too much, but it is just a beautiful stapler. Just this past weekend I found a Hotchkiss No 1 for $5, so it is always good to look around and you may just find one for really cheap.
I am looking for Staples for it, but thus far I haven't been successful.
