"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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
