This paper trimmer is so easy to use - with the clear surface for durability, the black on white marking, the thin wire to mark exactly were the cut is going to be makes cutting a joy, not a chore. I can accurately place the paper so the place that I need to score is over the "cutting ditch" and use my bone folder to do the very accurate scoring.
I know its one drawback before I got it - it only can cut up to 9" paper. I still use my old black hard to read one to do the few cuts I need to do on 12x12 paper.
I have a large Fiskars paper trimmer but it was a nuisance to take with me to card making clubs and classes. I purchased the 9 inch specifically for travel. I love the way it fits very conveniently into my "go" bag and does not take up too much room at a crowded craft table. It is a good product for what I needed.
I have been testing a variety of smaller portable paper cutters and found this one to be by far my favorite. The cutting line is very well defined and accurate. The blade does not hang up on the paper being cut. I am very happy with this product and am so glad that I ordered it.
I use this for scrapbooking and card making. It cuts very well through cardstock, paper, photo paper, ect. I love that I can tell EXACTLY where I'm cutting. Lightweight and doesn't take up much room.
