    Cuttin it up! (24-Mar-12)

    I just got this so I am wondering if I should wait a few months to give a review?

    One con about this its kind of big which I am used to smaller trimmers.

    I was about to freak out when I did my fist cut and it didn't go all the way through. I thought I had a faulty blade or something but you really must use your whole hand/or apply pressure where it says press.

    Its super cool that it comes with 3 blades really the necessities and looks down on your paper and has a line guide that shows you where your cut will begin.

    Like it! (06-Jul-12)

    I actually like this paper trimmer. I like how it holds the paper in place, and I also like the different blade attachments. I'm giving it 4 stars because I'm still getting used to using it, but it works great so far!

    Mixed thoughts so far (01-Mar-12)

    I like this as a solid piece of equipment but it takes some getting used to where it will cut on your paper. Make sure you become familiar with it before cutting your project. Love having different blades.

    Not a fan. (07-Apr-12)

    This cutter is difficult to use-it's hard to get the pressure right so it makes a complete cut, and it's hard to see where it will cut the paper. Once you lock the arm down, if your paper is in the right place it isn't moving-the only pro I can see so far. I asked a friend to try it out to make sure I was giving it a fair chance before I wrote this review. She said the same thing and decided she wouldn't order it.

    Thinking of returning for a Fiskars (11-Dec-11)

    Good overall trimmer, very sturdy. I like that the arm locks your paper down to prevent paper from moving while cutting. Cuts straight with no waving. I don't like that you lose 1/16" when you measure past 6 inches. This is because of the extend arm. You also have 2 inches between the 6" & 8" mark that has no measurment at all. Doesn't sound like much but when making cards it's a big deal. The measurement markings are a little hard to see, I prefer bolder markings.

    cutting/scoring (01-Jun-14)

    This is a great idea for a cutter/scorer, however it does not cut an accurate measurement. It seems to be about a 1/16 short on the measurements. Mine may be defected, I will contact customer service to make my complaint, and ask for a replacement.
