A tape dispenser with IHADA finish, a crude casting surface of solid brass.
It is so heavy thus stable that one can cut the tape with only one hand.
The space under the bar bridging the two pillars is provided so one can insert his/her hand to carry it around (see the 2nd slide).
The blade for cutting the tape is polished out from the solid brass, not an attachment.
The rotor is also made of solid brass.
