I love this cutter. It is very durable. I had my first one for two years and dropped it probubly a hundred times going to crop nights and then it broke. I replaced it shortly there after, And Im telling you, you do not know what you have till your without for a couple of weeks. Making measurements has never been easier, with its arm that folds for an easy six inch cut to the tiny 1/4 inch. Im sure you will love it.
