I was a little nervous about buying a rotary cutter because I've had bad experiences with them before, but this one just sounded so good & it was on sale! I have been using it for a little while now & it lives up to the hype! Cuts are nice & straight, it is easy to line up the paper & the locking bale is great. It is a little heavy & way bigger than my old trimmer so I wouldn't travel with it, but I sure am looking forward to never having to buy replacement blades & consistently straight cuts!
Love it! As advertised the trimmer cuts accurate, straight even cuts. It is heavy duty and very durable. The blade is sharp and still cutting clean with no ragged edges. I make handmade cards that require a lot of cuts and I was spending a lot of money on replacement blades on my other inexpensive Fiskars trimmer. The measuring surface folds in half which is a great space saver on your work table if you are not cutting 12"x12" sheets of paper. A very good investment!
I just Love Love Love it! Other cutters tend to give you a not so true straight cut because there is a bit of a give in the platform. Not to mention the "fuzzies" you get once the blade begins to dull. This cutter will not give because of the way it is constructed. So the cut is always precise and sharp, not to mention that you NEVER HAVE TO REPLACE THE BLADE!!! It's simply Awesome, best money I have spent on a craft tool and well worth it!
I have a guillotine-type cutter, but the blade was constantly needing to be sharpened and the paper would slip out of place; this is a wonderful cutter, I have even cut chipboard with it (although probably that's not a good idea). But what sold me on it was the fact that the blade never needs replacing, according to the manufacturer; and the measurements are very easy to see for this elderly lady!
