Business/Commerce (general) / petit matériel de bureau
French term or phrase: ôte agrafes
C'est un mot courant en français, et je crois même que c'est le nom d'une marque.
Petit instrument à 4 dents qui enlève les agrafes d'un document, pour le photocopier, ou pour séparer les pages. C'est l'indispensable accessoire des secrétaires.

Merci !
