I love this punch for a few reason. I LOVE the fact that they can be pushed down and locked so that they stack. I got this one from my Secret Sis and fell in love right away. I am not sure if they did something to improve an already great product, but this one seems to punch the smoothest of all the EK Success ones I own. I love how easy it is to punch through thick card stock and the fact that it embosses as it punches. Defiantly a must have for punch lovers.
This punch I returned for a new one as I thought the first was broke. However, it just doesn't punch through thinner paper well. When it does work I really like the look. Mine doesn't emboss, but I didn't really want it to.
