I love my portable fiskar. I just chnage the blades when it starts to grab the paper

I have the same Fiskars trimmer that Glenda does, and I love it.

Fiskars makes several trimmers. I am not a fan of the guillotine cutter, and I've heard that their newest trimmer with the guidewire is having some issues. I love all of their other trimmers, though.

I have 2 Fiskars right now that I like....I LOVE the one I use for trimming photos (the 9" one).....as for the paper trimmer.....It's ok but I sometimes have slight problems so I am thinking of getting the rotary one by Creative Memories.

I have one by Cricut and HATE IT!!!

My first one was a creative memories slide trimmer and it worked good for a while(it was used) and then not so good....I tried the rotary one at a crop where there is a Creative memories consultant and I loved it but only got to use it once.


BTW, the ones I have, I got with 50% of coupons from Michaels.

I have two Fiskars trimmers. Like both of them, but the triple track one is my favorite of the two.

I haven't used it regularly yet, but my current favorite is also the fiskars 12" with guideline wire. I use my small Fiskars 9" cutter for photos and smaller stuff, and have used that style since I first started scrapbooking. I'm on my second one, and I do love it so

Do the titanium blades last longer? What are the benefits of them? I haven't heard or noticed anything about titanium blades.

I had the Fiskars with the guide wire and LOVED it until the wire frayed.

I now have the CutterPillar pro rotary trimmer at home, and absolutely love it, but it takes up a bit of 'real estate', so I carry an older, the blue fiskars to crops.

I love my old Creative Memories paper trimmer, now discontinued--don't know what I'll do when my last replacement blade is dull. I also love their little guillotine cutter and the big Purple Cow Combo with guillotine on one side and the changeable rotary blades on the other. I can't conceive of giving up any of them!

I have a ordinary A4 size guillotine, I've had it for a few years now and the blade is still sharp as ever and I just picked it up a K-Mart!

I've got the Fiskars 12" cutter. What I like about it is that there's not a cutting strip, like the cutterpedes which tended to get warped over time.

However, it doesn't do thicker material like chipboard well, at all. If I have a lot of photos to cut I usually bring out my smaller guillotine cutter. All the guillotine's I've tried are great cutting at the top of the blade, but get worse towards the bottom.

I have the Fiskars premium cutter that pp are talking about and it cuts well but my blade keeps popping out....
It's not that old either, only bought it a few months ago...

I bought a Swingline guillotine cutter in June at Office Depot, and it's been great. I had problems with every trimmer I ever had--they would tug and pull on my paper, making me very mad! One that I picked up Target was doing that stuff in its first week of use! My cutter was $30, but that is better than no-good $16-20 trimmers. I will never go back to trimmers.

I have a Kaisercutter (by Kaisercraft) and I'm very happy with it.

I have an old Fiskars cutter that doesn't cut straight lines anymore, so I relegated it to coupon clipping and got a Carl on clearance at Office Max a few years ago. I love my Carl! But Costco had a Purple Cows cutter in mid to late January that I was sooo drooling over!
