Abstract: A new tape dispenser (4) is proposed, with a two-piece longitudinally split segmented housing (3), a holder for a roll of tape, a discharge opening (8), a guide applicator (10) fitted to the housing (3) in close vicinity to the discharge opening (8), by means of which the tape can be applied onto a substrate, and a blade (15) with a cutting edge situated downstream of the guide applicator (10). The housing (3) has an elongated anatomical form which can be kept in the enclosing hand and at least a shallow upper depression (34) in the housing is provided close to and adjacent to the guide applicator (10) in order to exert a pressure onto the guide applicator (10) by the index finger.
