Great product for the price

Comments about X-Acto Heavy-Duty Square Trimmer:
This is a great little trimmer, and a vast improvement over the rotary-style cutter we were using previously. The self-sharpening blade is terrific and makes a very clean cut. The blade lock is also very nice to have.Cons:-I could NOT cut more than one sheet of card stock at a time without the top sheet sliding (even when trying to hold it down firmly), which was disappointing, but it will cut a stack of regular-weight paper. Due to the ease of cutting, I was still able to cut 250 separate sheets fairly quickly.-The measurements are not as precise as I would like, so I had to make some adjustments to my document to compensate.-The top edge does not seem perfectly parallel to the horizontal measurement lines, so it's easy to end up with a stack of cards that aren't exactly the same size. It's not a very noticeable difference, though, and didn't affect our project.All in all, given our budget, we're very happy with this product.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works very well. The blade moves quite smoothly, and I was able to get very thin, clean cuts from it. I only wish it had a guard near the blade's edge, but that is easy to work around. Great product!
recommend this trimmer!

I had only used old paper cutters before, they weren't always that smooth, and the blades might be a little dull. This one is awesome! The blade is very sharp and slides very smoothly. I mainly use mine to cut cardstock and it works great! I would definitely recommend this, the base is very smooth and sturdy, and the grids on it to measure are very easy to read.
A must have tool that I use over and over.

Precise cutting...No more crooked cuts using scissors. Fast and self sharpening. A great tool but keep your fingers away from the blade :)

X-Acto Heavy-Duty Square Trimmer
from Northern Wisconsin
I have purchased at least 4 or 5 other brands of trimmers (quillotines) and I am very, very pleased with the X-Acto. I make greeting cards and cut a great deal of cardstock. I like the edges of my cards to have a clean cut and this trimmer is doing a great job. When I return to Arizona, I am sure I will purchase another one for my home there.
I'm Loving my new Paper Cutter
By Art Teacher
from Findlay, OH
I just opened an art studio where I offer art classes. This paper cutter is not only excellent to use, it also is beautiful. It cuts straight, and several sheets at once. It is also square, which is important for books and mats. I plan to be using it for years and years.
Great Service. Awesome product.

We use the product to trim many types of projects in the office. It cuts through card stock easily. The cuts are straight and smooth every time.

It's so nice when you find products that make your job easier! I've had a few other trimmers, and they haven't been precise and were a little flimsy. I thought I could trust X-Acto, and I was right! Very high quality. A solid value for something I plan on keeping forever.
