This cutting knife was designed by the husband of a woman who told him she couldn't find a cutting knife that worked. He did the research and figured out how to make a tool that not only made his wife happy, but thousands of scrapbookers worldwide too.
My first attempt at using this new swivel cutting knife was intimidating but I was successful. It’s a new way of thinking and it isn’t like the other swivel knives out there. The instructions show how to use it and there are easy to follow instructions on the Memories and Treasures website (just Google "EZ Cutter" and scroll down to the entry that mentions the Memories and Treasures Home Page). A DVD comes with the kit (in the Superstore) that makes it's easy to follow too. You can use it with stencils you currently own (that used to take you forever to cut-out by hand) or cut free-hand designs. Keep in mind that your shape will be a little bit smaller than the template. That's because the blade doesn't touch the template, the side of the pen barrel does so you won’t ruin your template. I couldn't be any happier with this product.

I bought this at a LSS and even had them give me a demo (after I bought it and found out they have a no return policy so I was stuck with it) and I'm still struggling. Maybe it's just me, but I just can't get the hang of it. I did go to their website...(.which is NOT listed on the ezcutter knife package,but on the template set I bought to go with it) and they have some instructions. I haven't had time to go through them yet, but hopefully they'll help. IT really shouldn't be that hard!!
