I've had two of these cutters for a good 6 or 7 years now. Both are in excellent condition and are used weekly. I have other cutters and dislike them immensely. This Carl Cutter, in my opinion, is the best paper cutter out there for card makers and scrappers. I have recommended this product to all scrapbookers I know.

I bought this exclusively to cut photos. It cuts, and it cuts straight, but poorly. Of course I am used to using "real" rotary trimmers (in the $200+ range). The problem with all of these economy trimmers is the use of a mat to cut against. As the paper is sheared by the blade, it is crushed into the mat causing frayed/tathered edges. This will do OK for very casual use, but for high quality clean professional results look for a true professional trimmer (Rotatrim to name one). Bottom line: I'll keep it and use ocassionally as a good trimmer is currently out of my price range, but honestly for a cleaner cut in this price range, you are better off with a conventional (lever arm) paper cutter.

    Comments about Carl® 12" Professional Rotary Paper Trimmer, 15 Sheet Capacity, Gray/Blue:

    I have never liked the cutters with the long arms. Purchased a small cutter that had the rotary cutter and liked it, except for the size. This one is just perfect - large enough to control the paper and uses a rotary cutter. The graph-like surface is a big help. Price was quite reasonable. I am very pleased with this purchase.

          I cannot find this item's cutting mats anymore from this website.
          It's wasting money because I have to buy other trimmer.

          Comments about Carl® 12" Professional Rotary Paper Trimmer, 15 Sheet Capacity, Gray/Blue:

          I did buy this paper cutter with the idea that if it lasted a year , I would be happy with it at the low price. But , to my pleasant surprise - it has lasted me 3 + years ! And not even any parts were/have been replaced .Buy one - you won't get any surprises on your purchase .I use it a couple of times a week , mostly for trimming my home printed photos + business invoices too .I had first bought a " cheapie " unit at that "freight place" - that lasted me one month - on low volume cutting + trimming . 5 Stars here !

            My husband bought this for me 4 years ago, and it is still working as smoothly as the first day. I have changed out the blade and strip once, and we use it mostly for school projects and scrapbooking. My mother wanted a paper cutter, I shopped around, and the only ones at this price seemed to be plastic and of questionable long term quality. They didn't have this one at the store any longer, but I was happy to find it online!

                Easy to use, but it is difficult to tell when you have cut through an enitre stack of paper. I use it only for cutting paper and it works well other than what was noted above.
