Folding knives vary in size, configuration, length, and recommended applications, but they all have one thing in common: the blade folds into the handle when the knife isnt in use. This prevents accidental lacerations and also makes the knife more portable, since the fold effectively shrinks the length of the tool by up to half. For this reason, folding knives are very popular as general-purpose tools, and have found an enthusiastic following in the EDC or Every Day Carry community, as well as with camping enthusiasts.

Seam rippers are tools designed to slide between sewn stitches and gently cut the thread without tearing at the surrounding fabric. They allow the user to cut, hook, and remove the thread from a seam, and they’re a life saver for tailors and seamstresses everywhere. Whether you’re altering a garment or fixing a mistake, these handy tools are just as critical in the world of sewing as an eraser is in the world of sketching.
The answer to the question: “What are seam rippers used for?”, however, is a bit different because, inevitably, once a tool is invented, humans find new uses for it. So this little gadget is more than just a sewing stitch remover. Seam ripper uses include detailed cutting and carving of soft media like clay, slipping into narrow cracks to cut tape or clean out a join, and cutting any material that needs to be hooked first, such as yarn that’s already been woven or knit into a fabric.
