It is quite a long and ostentatious title for a tool that basically does one thing-- it burns thread. However, it does it so exceptionally well... I, for one, cannot live with out it. Whether you are a seasoned beadweaver, or you have just learned your very first stitch, I'm sure you have come across the annoying fact that no matter how sharp a scissor, that tail of thread that you just severed is never cut close enough to your gorgeous finished piece. Unsightly! The precision of the Thread Zap II is such that you will never again have ugly little thread tails poking out, mocking you. Watch our handy-dandy video on this cool tool, and I'm sure you will agree that this is a must-have.
