A handy measuring tool with charm!

A very small, yet hefty measuring tape to stuff into your pocket or bag. I keep mine in my Medic Bag, just in case! Pulling the tape out was tricky at first, but once you've figured out the angle to pull it out at, it's a breeze. Looking forward to seeing how this one will age!

Quality control needs work

The tape is beautiful, that being said when it arrived it was covered wit black smudge almost black ink finger prints. With a scratch on it.
They give some weird bonus things like a cheap coffee beans and tea…. Almost deals like hotel junk.

Would loved it to be plain simple tape without those weird extra but nicely done

Also the text plate was put in the wrong side so when the text is straight leveled; the tape goes out upwards unlike the pictures on site.

Lastly, the tape hook is way too inside and so much difficult to take out as it is so recess I glued a brass part to help the hook to stay flush so I can get it easily

I feel that almost 70$ Canadian is a way too big price for something badly made.

Don’t get me wrong, love the product only really bad experience. It is good now after all cleaning it and adding the brass piece is a must. Still the text is not on the proper way but it works.

Brass Tape measure

Love it. This was a second brass tape measure. I liked it so much, I ordered another. Like that it’s both metric and imperial (inch). Handy.

Pretty heavy tool

This tape measure does what it's supposed to do, obviously. But that's not the point. It's a pretty, heavy little piece of stationary that just has to sit pretty on my desk...! I really love the look and feel of it.
