    The Trigger Action Stapler is one of a number of staplers patented by Edward Krantz. This is a very well-built machine weighing 2 pounds and measuring 7" L x 2.125" W x 5.5" H. While mechanically more complicated than most staplers, the unique trigger design means that regardless of the amount of force used to depress the trigger that force is converted to a specific amount of mechanical energy so that neither too much nor too little force is used when stapling.

    This stapler wasn't available for very long, perhaps for a few years after it was introduced in 1936.

    I think that its unique look paired with its utilitarian nature gives it a surprising and unexpected sculptural quality.
