Here are just a few of the many fantastic reviews for this product from our Scrapbook.com customers:

"This desktop guillotine cutter makes perfect, sharp cuts, every time. It is so much better than a rotary cutter, which can often leave raggy edges. Once you try this type of cutter, you may never go back to any other kind." - KathieH

"This is the best, perfect size, easy to use paper trimmer. The cutter is extremely precise. Just put your paper in, hold the paper gently, the guard protects your fingers, the trimmer does the rest, perfect cut, accuracy is great. Thanks so much for this great product." - tundra10

"Love the compact size and how lightweight it is. Cuts beautifully, and it's perfect that it is also a self-sharpening blade. No more blade replacements needed. Perfect for compact work areas and taking to a crop." - KreatesKards    

WARNING: The stainless steel blade is sharp!  Be careful not to touch the bare blade with your fingers and always use the plastic paper guard to protect your fingertips when maneuvering the blade arm.

This wonderful tool is the perfect companion for the cardmaking crafter or creator of all things papercrafts!  The durability and versatility will continue to amaze you, project after project! Get crafting with this trimmer to make your next masterpiece a cut above the rest!

    Love it

    This is really a nice paper trimmer, love the fact that you can use it for 8-1/2 x 11 paper. Very sharp and cuts clean . I consider it a good buy.

    Tonic Studios 8.5" Trimmer

    LOVING this trimmer. The blade cuts cleanly, and it's great having a 6" measure (my 'old' trimmer only has a 5" measure) I'm also enjoying having 1/4" markings going down the full length of the platform.

    Amazing guillotine

    This desktop guillotine cutter makes perfect, sharp cuts, every time. It is so much better than a rotary cutter, which can often leave raggy edges. Once you try this type of cutter, you may never go back to any other kind.

    HUGE issue with this trimmer!

    And the fact that no else posted about this issue baffles me! If you are measuring exact then this trimmer works, but there is one HUGE problem. The edge of the paper guide is a 1/4 of an inch away from the blade! So if you need to trim off the white edge of a photo, you can't tell where the blade will fall. Tonic has never done this before on any of their trimmers, so why now? If you buy this...Be warned.

    Nice sharp cuts

    Tiring of regularly having to put blades in my SU trimmer/scorer, I decided to give this a try. I like the compact size, although it would be nice if it cut standard paper lengthwise. The blade is nice and sharp, but you do have to hold the paper down firmly, especially substantial cardstock, or it will slip and make an uneven cut.

    hard to work with

    The first two cuts were okay. I am cutting regular cardstock, nothing fancy. The baby line that I bought from here.
    Then, the blade would not go down. Would not budge, at the very top of the blade, by where it meets the metal. I looked at the screws, they are in tact. on both pieces. It is the metal strip that the cutting blade meets to cut the paper. I have to forcefully pull the blade away from that metal strip to make it do the cut.
    So, can you imagine how long this piece of cutting equipment is going to last? not long, I am afraid.
    I am NOT happy.

    not so good

    Pick this up Friday and returning it today, Monday. First try, the cutting has a hitch. Chopped the paper. I may have just gotten a lemon. but it does feel a bit.....flimsy.

    The cutting edge was not smooth

    I'm very disappointed as I have the "old style" Tonic cutter and I LOVE IT. The only thing wrong with it is it wasn't big enough. When you came out with this cutter that went to a full 6 in, I was ecstatic. Imagine my disappointment when I received it and the edge that rubs against the blade was not smooth, causing my first cuts to be ragged. I am returning to exchange for another.

    Are there any replacement parts needed?   By: User (04-Apr-16) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • No, it has a self sharpening blade. What I like about it is that it's six inches wide. So I can cut my photo to any size that I want. I love Tonic trimmers. I give it five stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ By: raeraesma (07-Apr-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • No additional parts needed. Cuts very well, blade is sharp and I recommend this paper cutter. By: elbonnelg (07-Apr-16) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

  • I just received my trimmer. Is the arm supposed to "lock" when pulled upright? Mine stays up until I pull it slightly to the right to make my cut. Is this the way it was designed or do I have a defective product?   By: dsa (07-Dec-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • I don't have this particular trimmer but I can tell you that at work we recently were required to replace all trimmers with newer models that have the safety feature you are describing. It's meant to keep the arm from slipping down and cutting when you are adjusting your paper. We hated it because it took a while to get used to. My own guillotine trimmers at home are years old and don't have that feature but I can see how it would be required on newer products. By: MoniL (09-Dec-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • I bought my trimmer a few months ago and that feature is not on it. It looks like this is a new safety feature that has been added to the newer models. By: SheilaDavis10 (11-Dec-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

  • I usually am cutting 12x12 paper, but this is only 8.5. would this still work for me?   By: waggityann (11-Aug-18) Helpful Question?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This question has been reported. Thank you!
    • There's a lip at the bottom so sadly no, 12x12 paper won't fit. By: jwarrenx2 (11-Sep-18) Helpful Answer?  Yes  |  No Thank you! Report Inappropriate This Answer has been reported. Thank you!

    • The 160e is designed for 8.5" x 11" paper. If you are cutting 12" x 12" I suggest that you purchase the #1980e trimmer. Here is the S.com link for that item - https://www.scrapbook.com/store/ton-1980e.html

      Let me know if you have an other questions.
