Best trimmer I have ever used Review by Venus Envy Paper
Overall Rating
I have used this for about 8 months now and feel it is time to write a review. I am a bookbinder and I specifically purchased this trimmer for that purpose. This isn't a quick cut tool. If you are looking for something where you can quickly put in a piece of paper, make a cut and go about your day, this isn't for you. If you're looking to make really accurate cuts from a pile of papers, this is definitely something you would be interested in.

First off, it is heavy and isn't like a normal crafting trimmer. I've spent a bit of time in craft stores and around scrapbookers, card makers and various paper crafters. They have folding plastic trimmers that they carry with them everywhere. This isn't one of those. This is heavy, well made and not easily transported. It has its own table in my studio I love and respect it that much.

Book board is difficult to cut by hand. I always have good intentions of using a metal ruler and a blade, but somehow I can't get straight cuts because my hand always slips. That is where this trimmer really earns its keep. I can make my original measurement with pencil marks onto the book board. Then I slide it under the bar and lock it into place. There is a magnet guide that is very useful. I simply slide that right up next to my book board and I never have to measure again for that particular cut. The trimmer slices right through paper, cardstock, chipboard and book board well.

It does take a little getting used to at first. I was very comfortable with my other trimmer (Carl 12200 Bidex Professional 10-Sheet Rotary Trimmer, Metal Base, 12 x 11) and this one took a little while to get to know. Once I did, I realized this is one of those tools that I will have for life.

It also comes with spare blades and a cutting mat. Book board tends to eat through the blades pretty fast, but I have found if I fold a large piece of aluminum foil 3 or 4 times and cut several strips, it sharpens my blade very well. (Posted on 6/15/2017)
