Small Stitch Ripper with ball point and cover. The stitch ripper is a small tool used for unpicking stitches. It consists of a handle, shaft and head.
The head is forked, with one side of the fork flattening out and becoming a blade, and the other side forming a small ball point. In use the blade is inserted into the seam underneath the thread to be cut.
The thread is allowed to slip down into the fork and the tool is then lifted upwards allowing the blade to cut through the thread. Once the seam has been undone in this way, the loose ends can be removed.
