I love my Coluzzle! You have to use the Coluzzle templates and the soft Coluzzle mat, but it works perfectly. I have had 4 different circle cutters and Coluzzle is the best. Easy to use and easy to store. The only gripe I have is the small size of the templates. They could make a few larger circles, squares and rectangles . . . even ovals. I'm wodering if the other interviewers here are using the templates and mat. I don't see how this product could not work perfectly.

Thank goodness I borrowed this contraption from my friend at a crop. I would never have thought of purchasing it for myself.
It took some getting used to, but after a few minutes practicing on scratch paper, I was ready for my good cardstock. I loved that it was so easy to maneuver around the curves in the giant oval I used.
Can't see how I lived without it. It is a fabulous tool for circles and ovals... highly recommended!

I looked all over for a circle cutting tool that worked well but was also inexpensive.. because I am a budget scrapper! But I also needed something that was easy for ME to use considering my disability! So I bought a Coluzzle Swivel Knife and a circle pattern and mat and I was EXACTLY what I wanted! Plus the knife is a great tool shape a small hand-made embellishment! I use it everytime I scrap!

I love my Coluzzle Swivel Knife for cutting around curves in my Coluzzle templates. I also use it for free-hand cutting. I found that it turns just where I want. It works best if I use it on thinner paper and if I don't press down too hard.

The first time I used a coluzzle was at a CTMH party to make tags. I wasn't so sure about it at first, and didn't use it again until a mini album workshop. Once I learned to use it correctly, I feel in love with it and hope to purchase more of the templates. At first it can seem difficult because of the blade swiveling and you have to make sure it's in the right direction. I would also suggest that you get the cutting foam pad so the knife flows around your template smoothly. Once you figure that out, its easy coluzzling...
My Coluzzle Swivel knife remains in a drawer, barely used. Though I liked the idea of having a knife that would go around curves easier, this was hard to use. The blade seemed to move around very easily.
The only good features, in my opinion, are the easy-to-grip handle and the fact that the cap stays on tight, unlike other (Xacto) knives.
Perhaps I wasn't using this properly, but be that the case, they should maybe have instructions on proper use listed on the packaging.
