We think these are the most beautiful stitch rippers you will find! Made to an exclusive design for Beyond Measure, they have a turned wooden handle, an antique style brass fitting and removable/replaceable blade. There is no plastic involved at all!

The handles are turned individually in the UK so will vary slightly, but the wooden part measure about 3 inches (7.5 cm) long, so nestles nicely in your hand. The blades can be removed easily for storage or to be replaced when blunt.  

Each seam ripper comes with one blade, a storage bag and blade storage tin which is also handy for needles and other bits. Spare blades also available. 

Total length with blade is about 5 inches (12.5 cm).

Wood options:

Yew is a very silky wood to the touch and is a varying warm honey colour. It sometimes has a slightly swirly grain or knots.  

Oak is a slightly darker wood which mellows beautifully. It has a distinctive grain and slight texture to the surface.

Cherry is a smooth wood with a warm mid colour and a variegated grain that sometimes contains darker tones.

Walnut is a dark rich wood with a tight grain. 

Holly a lighter wood with a close grain and cooler tone and modern look

Apple is a smooth pale tone, close-grain wood, sometimes with tiny pits or knots.

Wood is a natural material so each handle will be unique and will be slightly different to those pictured.

Handle made in the UK, blade is from Japan.

Great quality

I bought this after breaking a standard plastic one within a day of buying it. This is a robust and beautifully made steam ripper which will last for years I'm sure.

It’s so sharp!

I bought this stitch ripper at The Knitting and Stitching Show because of the beautiful wooden handle. The first time I used it I couldn’t believe how sharp it is, and how easy it is to cut stitches with it - it’s a thing of beauty and practical too. It’s beyond comparison with the old plastic ripper that I’ve had for longer than I care to think about, and definitely a good investment.


Super. Very sharp and comfortable to use.

Helena Hurst
A dream tool for every sewer.

I couldn’t love this stitch picker more. The oak handle is not only stunning but is so comfortable to hold and the right length for unpicking all my mistakes! I love the fact that extra blades are available should I need them. Highly recommend!

Gorgeous little thing

I’ve purchased so many of the plastic stitch rippers in my life and have none to show for them. This is honestly the best stitch ripper I’ve ever used and it sits pride of place near to my sewing machine. There it shall remain until it is passed down to one of my daughters.
