A Very "Nimble" Idea (Or How To Make Opening Things As Easy As Touching It With A Finger)
This is the first review I have ever done with the permission of the manufacturer of the item.  Please note - I have not been paid for it - all I did was inform the manufacturer that I was a blogger and asked if I could review it (that was the first time I evr plucked up the courage to do anything like that).

To say I like gadgets is a bit of an understatement.  The more unusual the better as far as I am concerned.

You cannot get much more unusual than "Nimble".


The "Business End" of a Nimble - it has a very small cutting surface which doesn't cut your skin - just paper, card and plastic.


A close up view of the working end of it.


A "Nimble" being used.

I must admit that when I saw the "Nimble" it looked like a thimble you would wear when sewing - just a bit chunkier.

It was actually the card on the stand which grabbed my interest more than the device itself.  The card suggested it was a "Kickstarter" (crowdfunding) project.  The card also told me the device would be more useful than the novelty "Christmas Cracker toy" it appeared to be.

It may just look like a bright yellow plastic thimble but it has a small blade protruding out of the top of it which will cut card, paper, and plastic (apparently it is useful for microwave meals).

My favourite thing about it is that - not only can you wear it on your finger (thereby saving you hunting for a pair of scissors) - it is portable without being bulky.  Also, you don't have to attempt "reverse Origami" like you would do for those foldup nail scissors you can by on keyrings.

If you want to help "Crowdfund" this brilliant gadget (and pre-order yourself one at the same time) please visit www.kickstarter.co.
