Staplers rule, especially the old chunky heavy ones. Seriously, what is your desk without one? It's like the shoes of your desk outfit. Not only do they look cool, but how great does it feel to just feel that axe swing down and bind some paper together!? I'm kinda freaking out about The Zenith Plier Stapler now offered at Plastica ($40). This is the original design by Zenith, put on the market in 1948. It can be used in 1 hand and sitting on a desk, and can staple up to 30 sheets at once. Raw. Power. For more on old staplers check out the blog Stapler of the Week, yes it's real.
