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.
