You've probably tried hiding your private information when throwing away mail or personal documents. And we have things like a shredder or just cutting up everything in little pieces but what if I told you there is a product that can help you.

4. Uni Propus Window Highlighter - Light Colors

What makes this highlighter super special is the transparent window on its tip which allows you to see what part of the text you are highlighting! These highlighters are double-sided and include a fine tip suitable for underling and writing.
5. KOKUYO Saxa Poche Compact Scissors
Carrying around scissors in your pencil case can be a bit annoying and sometimes a bit unsafe. If only we had a compact and functional option.... Well, yes, this one is for you!
What is unique about these cute compact scissors by Kokuyo is that the scissors are without a cap. The blades are designed specifically to come out from the case by sliding the button on the side. The special 3D mechanism prevents the blends from getting sticky when used to cut the tape.

Write, erase, re-write with no damage to the paper! The erasable Frixion 3 in 1 is a unique gel pen that contains 3 colors of thermo-sensitive gel ink. The heat generated by friction when rubbing the paper with the special tip turns the ink invisible.
9. KOKUYO Kadokeshi 28 Corner Eraser
I'm sure we all use up the corners of an eraser first, it gives us that precision that we are looking for to erase exactly where we need. Which is probably why this eraser was created.
This brilliant and quirky Japanese eraser has 28 corners. Its unique shape means that it has a greater number of corners than a conventional eraser, whilst using no extra space. (I mean it even won a designer award, that's a plus)
10. Uni Kuru Toga Roulette Mechanical Pencil
This one is one of my personal favorites! The downside of using a pencil, mechanical or wooden, is the way the lead starts to decrease on one side so it's less sharp. And we automatically have created this hand motion of rotating the pencil and using the more sharp side. Uni's fabulous Kuru Toga solves that problem.
Kuru Toga rotates the pencil lead as you write using only the kinetic energy created by your pencil strokes. The rotating lead results in a uniformly sharp point instead of the chisel tip which means neater lines and a stronger lead. Kuru Toga has been a sensation all over the world because of its innovativeness and archival quality.
That's all we have for you today but don't worry, there are many more items yet to come so keep an eye out for a part 2!
We hope we enjoyed it!
