Nice Thread/Yarn Cutter

My friend called me the other day and wanted to see if I would go to A.C. Moore with her (I think it's an East Coast US thing). Anyway, it's a big craft store and now I finally (for lack of a LYS, or even a craft store in our area), get to go somewhere where I can see yarn live and in person! So I was checking out their website to get an idea of what they carry and I came across this yarn cutter that caught my eye. I think yarn cutters usually look like ugly jewelry or like those badges/bracelets people wear in case of emergencies that say "I have a heart condition" or "I am diabetic". Of course I can't attest to it's quality/sharpness etc. but it sure is pretty. Here's a link http://www.acmoore.com/p-44457-dymondwood-thread-cutter-1-12-diameter.aspx

That does look nice. Kinda reminds me of the Knit Picks Harmony needles.

Oh that is a nice one! I

Oh that is a nice one! I agree that most of the cutters out there look horrible. it looks like it has a double edged razor inside so it should be pretty sharp.

As for the ugly bracelets people wear to say they have a condition. aren't those ugly cutters saying "Addicted to knitting, in case of emergency apply two sticks and a ball of yarn"?

Ha! That's great. There could be a market for that idea.
