I have bought so many trimmers. I bought this one because you can trim and score. I am such a slow learner. I wasn't really expecting much, since I have bought so many of these things looking for the perfect cutter, but...Well, like all the Fiskars that I have bought ranging from $16 -$50+, this trimmer blade runs on a plastic track. YOU CAN NOT get a straight cut if the blade is wiggling around on such a track. I DO like that the scoring board is measured in 1/8 inch increments, and use it for scoring more than I do my Score-Pal. If you are looking for a tool that you don't have to switch between a scorer and a cutter, it's not bad. It's just not great either.
This is an excellent trimmer that has all the features I wanted. It is a full 12 inches so you can trim the little white strip off paper, it has the scoring feature as well as cutting and it is very easy to see where the cut will go as there is a permanent groovein the plastic. Folds in half, so easy to take to crops, too!
Great product, reasonable price since you are essentially getting 2 prducts in one, trim and scoring boards. Love the Scrapbooks.com video with ideas on how to use it as well!
I love the size and the ease of figuring out measurements. My only complaint is that there is a small spring on the bottom that gets caught on my clothing sometimes when I am moving it around or using it on my lap. Otherwise, its very well made

While this trimmer is good for cutting, and it's nice to have the score board as well, I find that this trimmer is always cutting my paper slightly off square. The cut edge always seems to be slanted or bowed.
Not sure if it's the trimmer or the person using it, but for the time being, while I research a better trimmer, this one does the trick.
There is much wrong with this cutter/scorer. If I could give it zero stars I would! I purchased this because I thought it would be a great combination tool. What a terrible disappointment. First of all, the blade is so dull it tears the paper - this is right out of the box! Second, when I try to score or cut, everything comes out skewed and not square despite my best efforts to keep everything tight to the paper stop. The magnets on the blade holder do hold the blade holder down but it does not hold the paper even slightly - It just slides around. Bad job WRMK! I have been papercrafting for 20+ years now and this is probably the worst tool I have purchased. If I had not already thrown out the packaging I would take it back. I have many other WRMK tools and have found them to generally work well. I am VERY disappointed with this one. I looked on the WRMK website to leave a review but could not find any way to do so. This product needs to be redesigned. For people considering purchasing this - don't waste your money.
