The 9" Bypass Paper Trimmer by Fiskars is just what you need to crop your family photos or trim your paper for your traditional layouts. Cut up to 5 sheets of paper with no fanning, shredding or fingerprints.
This trimmer is lightweight and about 11 ½” long. It has rubber slip-proof feet so it won't slip or slide. It comes with a clear plastic film to protect the grid, which consists of measurements in increments as small as 1/16th of an inch and has a "finger guard" to hold photos and paper in place without risking fingerprints.
I have had my trimmer for 1.5 years now, and I have used it EVERYDAY.. over 500 Layouts and 60 cards, as well as pics and the blade is just now starting to get dull! This trimmer is light weight so it is portable, it is easy to use and very easy to store in small spaces. I would definitely recommend this trimmer for anyone with a low budget, small scrap space or for people who travel with their supplies alot.
I love this trimmer! After years of frustration with other trimmers' uneven cuts and dull blades, I've found this. If you use the finger guard correctly, it always cuts straight (don't skip the finger guard or it cuts really, really crooked). The blade is self-sharpening. I wish I'd found this sooner.
I have been having the best time with this little gem, triming photos and smaller pieces of background paper.
I have a larger Frisker's trimmer that is good for 12" paper but this little trimmer is indispensable for my scrapping.
About this bypass trimmer. I already had a large 12 x 12 trimmer, so I thought I'd pick this one up for my smaller jobs, and I can honestly say it is one of the BEST scrapbooking purchases I have made to date.
One great thing about this trimmer is its size. It can be slipped into a bag and taken to crops, you can carry it to the living room and use it on the coffee table....it can go pretty much anywhere. And because of its size, it is great for those small jobs you need a precise blade for.
Something else I love is the sharpness of the blade. I have cut more than 2,000 pieces of paper with mine and the blade is still as sharp as the day I bought it.
I have found few tools as useful as this trimmer...it's worth having two!
I'm quite new to scrapbooking and before now, only had a cheap little paper cutter. The size of this trimmer is very handy. And the quality of the trimmer is very high. This is to be expected from the Fiskars brand.
