    Darn near perfect (04-Aug-10)

    Finally, a paper cutter that will cut at very nearly a perfect right-angle when paper is lined up with the top paper guide. I've purchased many other paper cutters over the years of all prices and styles and this is the first that has come this close. The wire is a great aid for lining up pre-measured and marked paper. The increments marked on the face of the cutter and running the length of the cutting bed facilitate cutting to the closest 1/4" while the rulers at the top and bottom will enable 1/16" measurements. The blade tracks well without the blade guides distorting under pressure. The 8-1/2" x 12-1/2" cutting bed is just right for cutting 12" scrapbook paper yet the overall 8-1/2" x 14-1/2" size of the cutter makes it small enough to travel with ease. A well-thought-out tool. Two thumbs up for this priced-right cutter.

    Fiskars 12 inch premium Cut-line Portable trimmer (28-Mar-13)

    I luv the cutter and the size sketches on the front where they can not be smeared. I got extra blades which is I for the cutter but it has a a score attachment also which Scrapbook.com does not carry at all. I had to call the company from the number on package and get them. They come in one blade and score in a pack. Since Scrapbook.com doesn't carry alot of stuff that is advertised I have changed ordering sites. This place will get it in stock for u really fast and are very good about helping u out with problems in merchandise u really want. Fiskars was totally amazed they did not carry the score blade that goes with the machine. I have already received them from Fiskars fast shipment.

    Best paper trimmer EVER! (08-Feb-11)

    i purchased this trimmer a few weeks ago, i love it! i've a few other trimmer, including some other fiskars, and they just dont compare to me! the wire shows you exactly where its going to cut. the grid and ruler on the board are under the plastic and wont rub off. the extended arm locks into place when measuring larger pieces of paper. the trimmer itself has a lock so it makes it easy to travel with and store. it has rubber corners which keep the trimmer in place when cutting, i've really come to appreciate that. all around a really great trimmer and wish i had it when i started!

    Excellent Paper Cutter (21-Oct-11)

    OK, first a confession: I haven't actually cut anything with it yet, that's for this weekend.... BUT, I've always loved Fiskars paper cutters -- I've always had excellent luck and this one has the wider cutting base for easier cutting for A2 cards (5.5 without extending the arm) AND scrapbooking -- how often does one ever cute more than 6"? NEVER, because 6 is half of the 12x12 paper so if you want to cut 8 you can cut 4. SO, I'm thinking I'll never have to worry about pulling out the arm for cutting again in my whole life. I bought one for my BFF too!

    Card Making Fast and Professional!!! (23-Dec-13)

    I debated on whether to purchase this so late in my crazed card making season. I'm soooo glad that I did. It made my last mad rushes sooo incredibly easy. Love the fact that you can see exactly where you are cutting, that it lets you cut a 12 x 12 sheet. The cuts are very precise and one sweep cuts it! It folds and is very compact. I can put it in a drawer without fear that something will be broken. Fiskars is a trusted product!!! This will be a staple in my card making tool kit!!!

    fiskers trimmer (15-Apr-10)

    IF YOU ARE A SCRAPBOOKER OR CARD MAKER, THIS IS WITHOUT A DOUBT THE BEST TRIMMER I HAVE EVER USED. AND I HAVE TRIED MANY AND END UP GIVING THEM AWAY. IT IS EASY, NO MISTAKES ON PAPER BEING CUT CROOKED, THE FINE WIRE GUIDE LINE IS UNBELIEVABLE. CHANGING THE BLADE, WELL, IT IS SO EASY. I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH "GOOD THING" ABOUT IT. I WOULD GIVE IT A 10 IF THEY HAD THAT MANY STARS.

    Awesome Trimmer! (20-Dec-10)

    I really love working with this trimmer. It's easy to use with all the sizes printed on it. The increments are easy to read and I love that there is a wire guide right where the cut is going to be so I know exactly where I'm going to be cutting. I wish it came with a scoring slide as well so I could score my cardstock after cutting it. Wonderful product from Fiskars though!

    Fiskars never fails to deliver! (26-Apr-12)

    Kept waiting to take the plunge to upgrade from my portable 9" trimmer to this 1' and am super pleased!! Cuts through paper seamlessly, has some sort of non-stick coating that prevents your paper from slipping, which has been the bane of my existence with my old one!

    The only gripe I have with this product is...I wish I knew about it sooner!

    I've gone to heaven! (15-Aug-10)

    Is there a 10 start category??? This is the BEST paper trimmer I have ever used! I've been scrapbooking for over 11 years now and this one beats them all! I hope the blades hold up, that's my only worry, but that guide line for cutting, and the handles, and the grid markings, and the stability on the table - awesome product!

    Best trimmer EVER!!!! (26-Feb-12)

    I love this paper cutter!!!! I have bought many different kinds in the past but this one is the best one I have EVER owned!!! My favorite feature is the lock on it so your paper doesn't shift while you are trying to cut it!!! Another nice feature is the wire that you can see exactly where it will cut.

    Don't normally use trimmers (16-Jul-13)

    I have refrained from using a trimmer in the past because, for some reason, whether operator error or product error, the edges still came out ragged. I don't have that problem with this trimmer, even when I use the larger 12x12 paper. Now I'm waiting to get the scoring attachment for the trimmer as well.

    12 Inch Premium Cut-Line Portable Trimmer (14-Apr-10)

    I love this! More work room with the larger base, the trim line is something that has been needed for a long time. The ability to see where the blade will be cutting is priceless! No more missed cut lines, which can throw off the entire project. Thank you Fiskars for this product!

    The Best Paper Trimmer Around (04-Jan-11)

    I have a number of trimmers, but this one is the best by far. Not only does the guide make it easier to cut, but it's the first trimmer who's 'arm' actually gives you an accurate cut. I was the first in my scrap group to pick one up. Now all my scrap buddies have purchased one.

    GREAT TOOL (26-Jul-10)

    This is my second Fiskars Paper Trimmer and couldn't be more happier with it. Large working area, precise cutting and what is the best - measurement lines will not wear of like on my previous trimmer because they are printed beneath. Love it and highly recommend it.

    Double duty Trimmer (23-Dec-13)

    I'm very happy with this purchase as trimmer can do double duty, cutting and scoring (purchased scoring blade separately from fiskars), changing blades is quick and easy. Quality product and must-have tool for paper crafting.

    An excellent tool for scrapping and card making (10-Apr-14)

    I've used other trimmers - rotary and track-style - and this is, by far the best. It really *does* cut exactly on the wire line. No guesswork and it's easy to see.

    I only wish I'd purchased one a long while ago.

    Great Cutter (04-Feb-13)


    I truly love this paper cutter. All the features are exactly what I need. However, after 2 years of use, the wire guide has started to fray and the blade no longer slides smoothly. In other words, I have worn it out! Am in the process of contacting Fiskars to see if a new wire guide is available. I would purchase this cutter again if I can't just replace the wire guide.

    Fiskars - 12 Inch Premium Cut-Line Portable Trimmer - Blade Style I (27-Jul-12)

    I really like the wire to help you see exactly where you will be cutting - this is most useful for block cutting or even cutting coupons too. I have the LED Fiskars that also has the same design on it & I like this one much better - due to the blade and more precise accuracy.

    Great Buy! (12-Dec-10)

    the 6inch width makes this great for trimming paper for your cricut. Cuts are sharp and smooth and the wire is invaluable. The swing-arm can be a little stubborn, but still so much better than any other I've used. Very glad I made the switch to this trimmer!!

  • Great Trimmer (14-May-10)

    I just got the Fiskars Premium Cut-Line trimmer a week ago and so far I'm really loving it - especially because of the wire that shows you EXACTLY where the blade will cut (which is perfect for cutting between journaling strips - absolutely love that). I also love the wider base of 6-1/4" as opposed to my other Fiskars trimmer which is only about 3". So I don't have to swing the side arm out just to crop or mat photos meaning that it actually takes up LESS space on my scrapbooking table than my other 3" wide Fiskars trimmer. Plus it has markings that are underneath the acrylic in 1/2" increments for lining up your paper perfectly and for standard photo sizes & even one for a standard size A2 card that won't ever rub off and an extension that swings out from the side that gives you a total of 15-1/4". Plus it takes the same exact blade refills as my other trimmer which I already have a couple refill packs for from when they were on sale. And just like my other Fiskars trimmer, I love this one also because you can cut thinner strips of paper. I guess with some other trimmers you can't do that?? And the paper guard/blade locks down, which is nice.

    BEST PAPER TRIMMER EVER! (18-Jan-11)

    I have 6 different paper trimmers sitting in my studio. Everything from Provo Craft to Xacto and yes, even Fiskars. And none of them compare to this trimmer! It is without a doubt the most accurate trimmer I have ever used. The extra wide cutting surface and swing out ruler are both a time and headache saver. I LOVE this product! So much so, that I will be ordering a new one as soon as they are available again. And the blades ... oh the blades! They last forever and I use mine daily. I have probably made 400 cuts since I got the trimmer a few weeks ago (I make hand made wedding invitations). Believe me, it gets a work out. Nice clean, accurate cuts EVERYTIME! Highly recommend this product.

  • This Is a Gr8 portable trimmer (19-Sep-10)

    I am new to scrap booking. I am so glad I decided to start making scrap booking projects. I have so many memorable photos just laying in boxes and drawers. It was little challenging at first, because I was not familiar with any of the crafting supplies. Once, I did a little homework and took the plunge, scrap booking is really fun. The Fiskars 12 inch trimmer is definitely a must have. This is my first trimmer, so I can not compare it to others, but I have not made a mistake in matting my photos or cutting on any of my paper projects. I really love this 12 x 12 trimmer.

    Simply the Best Cutter Around (11-Dec-11)

    I had an earlier version of a Fiskars cutter and I really liked it but it didn't have the movable arm to let you messure a 12 by 12 piece of paper and it never seemed to cut exactly the way I wanted, kind of went off sides a little bit. I got this cutter mostly because of the messurements on the cutter itself. I like to make tags and this was perfect since the cutting lines were marked out for me. It cut awesome! Perfecty straight and no slipping or slidind around. Its my new favorite thing in my art area. I highly recommend this product.

    SO Happy!!! (14-Feb-11)

    I am VERY pleased with this trimmer! I bought another Fiskars trimmer when I first began crafting in 2009 but I didn't like the way it cut. Sometimes the papers ended up uneven and it left me frustrated (and wasting paper!). Well, I know that Fiskars is a good brand so I decided to give them another try. I am SO HAPPY I did!! I love this trimmer!! The cuts are even and the wire guide makes it easy to know exactly where you are cutting. I would definitely recommend this one!!

    Finally broke down and bought this! (12-May-12)

    I'm new to scrapbooking but not new to paper crafting and finally decided it was time for a quality paper trimmer to get started on my first album. After scouring tons of "best paper trimmer" threads on this site, I purchased this trimmer today. I was still nervous about my purchase at first, given all of the recommended trimmers out there, but I now have no regrets! I used it for about three hours today and the cuts are smooth and precise. This is an excellent choice!

    Best paper trimmer/cutter EVER! (23-May-13)

    I love this paper cutter/trimmer so much, I am thinking about purchasing another one just to have in case they ever become discontinued! I love the versatility of this trimmer. It goes all the way up to 12" and folds down to 6 1/2 " to use for smaller cuts. The blades cut so finely and the measuring is dead on accurate. It has measurements from 1/8" all the up.
    You could ask for a better trimmer/cutter!

  • Cant Scrap without it (10-Mar-10)

    I do not know how I scrapped so many years without this cutter. I get a straight line every time and if I make a mark where I want to cut with the built in guide I can cut directly on that mark every time. this cutter is great and I would recommend it to anyone who has problems with any other trimmer

    The best paper trimmer ever!!!! (08-Jan-11)

    I have been scrapbooking for as long as I can remember. I have had so many trimmers over the years. I was just so tired of them not being good ones and having various problems. I ordered this for myself and it is so awesome. Oh I wish I had this years ago!

  • the BEST! (22-Jan-11)

    This is BY FAR the best trimmer I have ever owned, would not trade it for any other! The wire guide is the best in precision cutting, and the arm is very stable, no wiggling and crooked cuts any more! Would go higher than 5 stars if able!

    easy to use (01-May-10)

    I bought this trimmer because my previous one wouldn't cut straight. This is very easy to use. It is smooth, light weight and the feet hold it to the table well. I would buy another.

    I love this trimmer, it packs up well and always provides a straight clean cut. The blades are easy to change and I even love the scoring blade option!

  • Someone got it right! (15-Oct-12)

    Very happy with this product and the solid feel it has. The cuts have been great and the wire gives a great line to show where it is going to cut.

  • Best trimmer around (26-Feb-11)

    This trimmer is so easy to use. Jennifer McGuire recommended it on her blog and I am so glad I got it. Scrapbook.com had the best price anywhere.

  • Surprised me in a good way (15-Feb-14)

    I bought this after not being happy with the Fiskars rotary style blade. The small blade cuts much better than I expected. It also cuts square. The whole unit is much sturdier than the picture looks. The blades are readily available. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 is because a few of the thicker cardstocks did have a little "fuzz" left on the line where it didn't cut cleanly.

    So Far.... (06-Feb-11)

    Just got the trimmer and really haven't had the opportunity to "take it for a test drive" when I got this survey. Just from my initial hands on I think it is going to be great.

  • Trimmer Blades (18-Aug-13)

    The blade has become blunt after only a short time and little use. Spare blades were out of stock

  • Fiskars (06-Feb-14)

    This is the 4th Fiskars product we've purchased. I guess I thought it was "just me" after the first 3 purchases, but the product quality is disappointing. Blades, guide wires are reasons why I will look for another product. Can't believe that we're the only customer with less than 100% product satisfaction. Really?
