Reverse sewing machine (seam ripper)   Help... I'm In Search Of

Not on here much, but I sure could use some help on this one. My wife had her retreat and in the process one of her students sewed a whole row wrong. As this student was struggling my wife offered to take this row apart as she sewed  the next row. One of the other students came over to help my wife. As they were reverse sewing the student asked if she would like to try a ripper she was given a few years back as she didnt like it. My wife could not believe how this ripper sped up everything. Long story short, she was given this ripper as the student had two and didnt like them. When I seen it and used it a few minutes I went on line immediately to try to find them. Of course it is obsolete and as far as I can find out so is the company that made them. It was a promotional give away and the name on it is Delux check printers inc. The only thing I could find was on Ebay under a general search of seam rippers and on page twelve it was called a "Copit seam ripper 4" " At my age and computer skills Im at my limit and was wondering if any of you have seen or heard of them. If so does anyone know where a person could get another one. I know eBay, but I would like a new one. You all were great in getting me the info I needed for the twisted ribbon pattern, so Ill challenge you again.

Can you post a picture of it?

i don’t recognize it from the name, but maybe if I see it.

Was it somewhat like a surgical scalpel, with a VERY sharp blade?

This is a whiz-bang superb seam ripper but you have to be careful when you use it.

You need steady hands, good eyesight (bright lighting is a big help) and never ever use it when you are tired. Otherwise, I recommend it highly.

I was on eBay after posting my message, and the picture was gone. Did find some sterling silver ones from Tiffany for $750.00 NO THANK YOU. Accordingly those are made in germany.

Yes but in a holder that looks like two fingers.

Years ago we used to get gadgets like that at our medical office with a pharmaceutical company's name on it; they were used as very slick letter openers to slice open the tops of long envelopes.  That sharp point slid right into the corner of the envelope and  .... zippppp ... away you would go to slice open the envelope.

My Google-Fu failed to find this...maybe Misha will have better luck.

That is a very unique seam ripper.

Kind of like my favorite thimble... there is no place to get it anymore, sigh.
