Need replacement blades? You can get them here!
I have had the Fiskars brand trimmers for years. I have purchased several and thought this one would be a nice change from the usual orange one I have which no longer worked due to a broken wire.
First of all, the arm on this is very flimsy compared to the other similar style Fiskars trimmers. It doesn't stay open. Also, it is lighter weight overall and I fear it won't last long. The cuts are okay, but because it is so lightweight, it shifts more easily than other trimmers.
Look elsewhere - the gold doesn't make up for the design flaws.
I love the size and look of my trimmer. It has very handy sizes already displayed (of which I have yet to use). The trimmer is VERY shark, cutting through all card stock weights with ease. I just wish scrapbook.com sold replacement WHITE trimmers (not that I need them yet).
As soon as I received it in the mail, I used it. It was smooth cutting and I have used it about everyday. I really like it and would recommend it to anyone who does a lot of cutting.
