CLEAVE sewing needle / Needle

CLEAVE sewing needle

The CLEAVE needle is a heavy duty sewing needle.
It combines the functionalities of a needle, scissors, and stitch remover to make a total sewing experience more affordable, hassle-free, and portable, using just a small modification to a conventional needle.
This change does not obstruct the general usage of the needle in any manner.

The slit in the eye of the needle helps to slot the thread in easily
There is another eye in the body of the needle, with a sharp edge inside, which can be used to cut thread.
The slit on this eye can also be used to remove stitches, acting like a hook
