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.

I love this product.. I can't believe how fast being in Canada that I received this item.. Thank you so much. .I have a 4 year old granddaughter and love the safety blade features and the fact that she was able to use it with supervision with me..
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.
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.
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.
