LOVE this tool! I didn't realize there were so many options to this tool. From traditional distressing, where you distress the edge of your matts or photos (with the side of the tool) to sanding (replacing my sandpaper file) for the perfect edge and finally the bottom of the tool exposes yet ANOTHER type of distressing tool, a wire brush! Finally, it comes with another, heavier interchangable head in order to get a deeper distress. Overall, great tool!!!

I have only used it once but I am in love with this all-on-one distressing tool! This is perfect for any kind of distressing you want to do to your paper or pictures because of all the different distressing tools to chose from. I particularly like the rough grit and paper edge distressing tools to get that perfect worn look on my papers.

This is the best distressing tool I've owned. I have a battery operated distressor and an electrical distressor, both of which work well, but this Prima distressor is handy to grab, easy to use and very effective. It gets into all cracks and crevices of a project. I was skeptical at first, not needing another distressing tool, but bought it at a sale price on scrapbook.com and have loved it.
When I ordered this, I wasn't sure how much I would use it. Now I don't know how I lived without it. It is the easiest distressing tool I have ever used. I used to use the Tim Holtz distressing tool, but this one is much more ergonomic. I've found that I also enjoy using the metal brush on photos. I am so satisfied with my purchase!
I do TONS of altered composition books and other chipboard items which require TONS of sanding. I have used other products and 100s of emery boards. This is BY FAR the best tool I have used for sanding the edges of all my projects.
I did 45 altered composition books and this little tool made my work quick and easy.
If you do projects like this...you NEED this gadget !!
I have several distressing tools, and this little beauty is the best by far. I have a tiny distressing tool with a blade on it and it kills my hands to use it for a long period of time. This tool has the same type of blade with a nice handle, plus sanding, grating and scratching texturizers. I LOVE this tool.
This is my very first review and I had to write about this tool. I have always loved the look of distressing but could never get it right. First time I used the Ingvild Bolme distressing tool, I was able to distress perfectly. The metal brush gives a vintage look to photos. One word....WOW!

I love this tool! It's sturdy, very portable, fits my hand well and easy to use. Other items for distressing have proved to be cumbersome to use but this one is easy and light.

This tool is easy to use. I love the handle which allows you to use the tool with ease when distressing. I also really like the multiple functions this tool has to distress my projects. I highly recommend this distressing tool.
This thing is awsome !!! I used to distress my edges with a knife (I know, how cavewoman of me) but that's all I had - until this !! It's a piece of cake to use and it does a great job sanding, distressing the works !!!
Wow I don't know how I ever lived without this distressing tool! There are different ways to use it, giving different effects and it is very simple to use. This tool should be a necessity for every scrapbooker!
I love it! I have the zutters electric distress machine that I use a lot, but this little tool is great for places that I need to distress, that the zutters can't get into buy this tool, you won't regret it
I used to use a We R Memories distressing kit but it has been replaced by this versatile tool which has most of components that the other kit has but is more compact with everything on one piece of equipment,

I love this tool, it is so perfect for ruffling up edges and and scraping paper and other embellishments. I've seen it used in videos and I am so happy I invested in one for myself.
This is one tool that I have been waiting for! I can't belive how many things it does! Just like the video promised. I plan on buying one as a gift for my sister.
I cannot say I have much experience with distressing, but from the tools I know, this is my favorite one because it has many different distressing options.
I really debated on buying this, but I am glad I did. I was using my scissors which worked, but not near as good as this little gadget!

So, the distressing part of this tool is perfect for card making. The sanding edges are a bit rough for cardstock . . . even on the micro side. Don't think I'll have much use for the wire brush attachment. All in all, not bad for a 3 in one tool.
If you've never used a tool such as this one, you'll be amazed at how useful it is. It sits well in the hand, it durable and strong and likely to be a go-to tool for may years to come.
Is made very well and it does work. I just got it so haven't used it that much but so far it's great! It might be over priced a bit by time I paid the shipping and taxes.
