    It is called a ‘surgical’ seam ripper because it is manufactured as a surgical blade not a ‘sergical’ as in serger! Very useful for seam ripping none the less.

    On the “regular seam ripper”, the little ball goes between the two layers of fabric.Then you push it through the entire length of the seam without having to cut every couple of stitches first.
