This little tool performs exactly as advertised. When I first saw the offer to get this nifty little gadget for free with any order in my email I was pretty skeptical. However, I watched the video demonstration for it and was intrigued. I have always had trouble maneuvering any kind of craft knife just like other reviewers who posted. I figured since it was free what could it hurt to try it? When my order was delivered I couldn't wait to open up this little tool and give it a spin. It is amazing how great this thing works!! I not only cut around chipboard letters that I adhered to a sheet of Christmas paper, but the blade is so precise that I was even able to use the negative as a stencil by placing a solid cardstock beneath. Unbelievable control and no learning curve as it really is just like using a pencil!! If you use a craft knife for any of your projects you've gotta try this -you will love it! Thanks sb.com for the freebie that became an instant fav in my tool inventory.
Ok, so I admit it. I am terrible at using those craft knives. I cut the paper everywhere but where I want the cut to go. I just can't guide them well. Then I found this little tool. I was skeptical, but it was pretty cheap and I decided to give it a shot. I LOVE IT. It gives me so much control. It doesn't slide out of my hands like the regular craft knife. It doesn't twist when I don't want it to twist. I just put the orange handle around my finger and use the tip of my finger against the metal area to guide it, sort of like a pencil. It cuts really well and accurately. It takes a bit of getting used to when you have this hard plastic band around your finger, but it's not uncomfy. It's just different. I'd recommend this to anyone else who is craft-knife challenged like me!
I have bought probably a dozen craft knives over the years, all of them went to the trash can. I have never been able to coordinate/control/use a craft knife. When this came up, I thought, what the heck this is different I'll try once more. This thing is amazingly easy. It took me only 3 attempts to get the hang of how to use it properly. I am merrily slapping paper on chipboard and trimming around it now, making a mini book for my DD's 1st anniversary!!! No more trying to cut the paper on the paper trimmer to fit the pages, I just put the paper on and trim with this little craft knife. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!! AWESOME!
