Okay. I can't resist jumping in here. While I'm tempted to do a little needling, I'll get right to the point.
First of all, let me clear. I have absolutely no intention of purchasing one. Not because they can be had for less, but because I wouldn't stick a blunted titantium needle in my mouth or anywhere near it. I'm also not going to speak to the safety issues others have mentioned. Others have already chewed over these topics durng the past drop and they may have grown long in the tooth as a result.
While I do not join them, I respect that there are others who might want this. My curiosity about the popularity of a previous drop of this item helped me understand that there are many other uses for such a tool. For example, spearing a club-sandwich for the individual who has everything.
It could be used as a hair-pin and/or to pick locks. Also for knitting really, really small sweaters or for nit picking (literally).
I've since learned that they can be used for other things, as well: cleaning out any hard to reach crevices not on the human anatomy, pressing awkwardly placed reset buttons, sewing, self-defense (or so I read somewhere online). If I dig more deeply I'm sure I could tease out other uses , but you get the idea. Personally, I'd rather use a wooden toothpick for my teeth and a paperclip (or regular needle) for the other things.
Yes, these can be had for substantially less from Amazon. That's not the target demo for these. These particularly short pointy things, made by this artisan, generally sell for substantially more than the price of this drop.
Enough people requested this item be dropped again and a fair number have already committed to join.
I'm certainly not one to throw stones or poke holes.
While I take responsibility for the poor jokes in this post, it is not intended as punishment for anyone. Rather, I presume that the readers of these discussions are mature. Groan ups only. (And please don't throw tomatos - they hurt my beak.)
Periodically edited for typos, grammar, clarity and to add additional jokes in equally poor taste. Such additions will not be marked as such (I have a rep to protect.) In all sincerity, this post is intended to offend only those with a decent sense of humor and no one else.
