The Heavy-Weight Tape Dispenser by Black+Blum is a beauty. They were tired of using tape dispensers that didn’t work, so they designed their own. The body is made from aluminium, but has an inner cast iron core and it weighs an astonishing 1 kg (2.2lbs). It also has a forged stainless steel blade that cuts tape perfectly.

  1. Tina! Did you notice how they tripled down on the craziness of the name?

    It’s in “quotes”

    It has a needless-hyphen

    And it’s in italics for no good reason

    Gotta love that.

  2. We have one in our office and love it. When you pull the tape out, the base doesn’t slide forward (like a lighter version would)…. also the cutting edge is crazy sharp. Good for tape, bad for knuckles.

  3. i have cut my knuckles and fingers quite a few times on the couple we have in our studio

  4. @sethgodin Yup. They sure have a good sense of humor! #waving
