    Amazing! (07-Oct-08)

    I think I have tried most the of circle cutters on the market. This is simply the best circle cutter there is. I don't have the 13"x13" glass mat. I have a smaller one, but this works great. HINT: If you have a problem with your paper slipping on the glass mat, keep a roll of blue painters tape handy and tape your paper down. Voila, no slipping and beautiful circles. I needed a huge circle once and ended up drawing around the outside edge of the template and cutting that out. I can't wait to get the oval and the rectangle templates that go with this cutter! The blades last quite awhile, but keep a supply on hand, there's nothing like a fresh, sharp blade!

    Great cutter...save time! (03-Sep-08)

    I bought the oval template and didn't realize that I needed this lil bugger. Great investment though. The swivel handle makes it easy for you to keep your hand on the cutter and never have to reposition your hand. Only suggestions I have are (1) buy a glass mat as other mats will make cutting much more difficult. (2) keep the plastic protective blade cover so you can replace it when you are not using your cutter. The handle opens for storage so there's no excuses that you lost it!

    smooth cutter (13-Feb-11)

    I have played with this on thick cardstock to thinner patterned paper, and I absolutely LOVE IT! The blade is very sharp to handle any kind of paper. The track is also an essential part. It is very smooth and allows the blade to do its job. I also cut on the glass mat, which allows the blade to glide through the paper as well. Ek Success has made an awesome product once again!

    Rate it as a 10!!! (08-Mar-08)

    This cutter is amazing. Absolutly love mine. I have the circles, squares, ovals and the curvy cutter to go with. I find I use the circles the most. It's very easy to use, just make sure to tack your paper done before cutting. I use painters mask. For a glass board I use the back side of my glass cutting board. This tool is well worth spending the money.

    Best circle cutter! (01-Jun-08)

    I got this cutter as a gift, and I absolutely love love it! It cuts precise shapes without tearing your paper or pictures. I love how the handle can open up and store extra blades. I also like how the blade cuts in both directions, so it is not too hard on your wrists when turning. I would totally recommend getting a glass or cutting mat for this tool!

    Wonderful Tool (27-Jun-08)

    I enjoy using this tool. I glides easily around the papaer without tearing the edges like other round cutters I have used. You must use the glass cuttting mat for the best results though. I highly recommmend this cutter.

    EK Success knows their stuff! (01-Nov-07)

    I use this with the circle template and it always gives the smoothest cuts. I love that the handle stores extra blades and the blades themselves are very sharp. I would definately recommend this to anyone.

    fantastic cutter (09-Aug-07)

    I've had the Fiskars cutting system and this is far superior IMO. Super smooth cut and the whole thing is really easy to use. I reccomend using it with a glass mat for a super sharp cut.

    Fantastic tool! (12-Mar-09)

    I got this as a birthday gift last year and love it, love it, love it! It works best with a glass cutting board, but I managed without for a while (just don't use a self-healing mat.) I'm still learning to use it, which shows in the LOs I've done with it so far, but I'm thrilled with it. No more painstaking work tracing circles from coffee cans, just easy circles whenever I want them.

    Rough Start (07-Nov-09)

    I would consider myself tool savvy but I had a rough start with this one. I had to actually watch the how to video online because the few times I had tried to use it perviously it cut like crap and wasn't very neat. But now that I know how to use it, I think it works just fine.

    Cits circles and more...maybe? (03-Apr-08)

    This is a nice product to cut circles, however you have to have qhite a bit of space and the stencils take a little bit of getting use to. I was a little bummed that you couldn't do smaller circles.

  • Love This TOOL!! (10-Aug-07)

    This tool is amazing it is easy to hold and cuts so smooth you wouldn't believe it! I purchased it about 3 months ago with the circle templates to match and I can't wait to get the ovals and squares!. Before this product I had Creative Memories circle cutters and I always had a hard time with the amount of pressure you have to put on them, the curvy cutter just glides you don't have to put any pressure on it at all! Love This Tool!!

  • Great product! (25-May-08)

    This cutting system is so great! I debated before buying it because there are so many cutting systems out there. I am so glad that I decided on this one. It cuts smoothly everytime! I bought the glass cutting mat with it and it works like a charm! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a reliable cutting system!

    Finally found a tool I can use! (05-Apr-08)

    After two attemps with Fiskars, I read about this cutter in the forums. I decided to give it a try so I bought the cutter and the set of oval templates. It worked perfectly! Shapes came out with smooth edges. Easy to use too! No complaints here.

  • Works great but.... (14-Jan-09)

    This does work great, amazing really. But it needs so much. You have to buy the tracks that it runs on and a glass matt to cut it on. It just seems like a lot. I didn't know, which was my own fault for not reading, that you had to buy this and the tracks and the glass matt; if I would've known I wouldn't have got this. But I doesn't work well just know you need the whole thing.
