  • Not the best, but works fine

    The entire base wants to lift when you raise the blade, and the blade doesn't go up & down smoothly at all. I ended up going back to my old paper cutter. Too bad because I really wanted a guillotine paper cutter for better accuracy. This one is not it. I'm giving it to a friend that doesn't have a paper cutter. Only because it's better than nothing. Save your money for a cutter that works!

  • Excellent choice!!

    Have been looking for a product to use for scrapbooking as well as trimming photos for a reasonable amount of money and this is a great find!! Cuts precisely thru photo material as well as thinner material accurately. The plastic guard and holder is a great assett to keep fingers out of the way and hold the material securely. I researched well before ordering and I'm glad I did. For the money you can't go wrong!!

  • Cutter

    Was hesitant to buy a new cutter because I couldn't decide which one. And I hate the two I've already tried. However, a friend recommended this and it is wonderful. Much more substantial than I thought and you can't beat the cost.

  • Handy cutter for multiple cuttings.

    First time with a guillotine cutter and am getting used to the process. It cuts very well especially when holding down the clear plastic guide. Can do multiple pieces of card stock well. Would appreciate stronger contrast in the color of the numbers used for measuring on the orange strip, maybe black numbers against the orange background. Overall I am very happy with the product.

  • Straight, Clean Cutting !

    Finally - a cutter that actually cuts a straight, clean edge !! Easy to assemble - just remove the easy grip handle from the back of cutting board and insert. That's it - you're ready to cut card stock, chipboard, document paper, patterned paper, etc... Easy to use 12 inch measurement guide and grid lines including not just one ruler, but THREE rulers ! The top ruler is raised to allow your paper to align perfectly across the top ensuring an exact cut. One of the best features is the paper clamp bar designed to not only save your fingers, but hold the paper down to avoid movement during cutting. I've spent hundreds of dollars on other trimmers and this one beats them ALL - hands down !! Thank you Tonic Studios and - EXCELLENT purchase !! :-)

  • Love it!

    I use this for scrapbooking. Works great, and is easier and more accurate than the smaller trimmers with th pull out guide rulers. It is lightweight so you can travel with it. It doesn't have a locking mechanism to lock the cutting arm in place when traveling, which is the one negative about the product. It you don't travel with it, it isn't a problem! If you do a lot of cutting, I would highly recommend this product.

  • LOVE IT!!!!

    I have used several different papercutters over the years, and this one is by far THE BEST & most accurate one! I LOVE IT! I use a lot of heavy cardstock, and can easily cut through at least 2 sheets at a time, sometimes even 3...which is a HUGE time saver. It is very lightweight also, which makes it easily portable, and I LOVE the grips that keep the paper in place as I am cutting- A very well thought out product!Though I do love this cutter, there are few MINOR negatives about the product...I do not like the fact that there is no real safety to keep the blade closed- I have 2 toddlers and another on the way so I have to make sure it's locked up where the kids can't reach it...The rubber grip handle is detachable & I have had a few occasions where it has come off as I am cutting paper...the measurement guide is marked in 1/2 inch sections, so making 1/4 inch cuts isn't as easy, but still doable :)Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase, I have only had it for about 2 weeks and have used it just about every day since receiving it. I highly recommend to anyone serching for a high quality paper cutter!!

  • Guillotine 12-in Trimmer

    Loved this product! This replaced an old Fiskars that won't cut straight. And boy, did this make a difference! I did my research for sometime and this was a great investment!

  • Tonic

    Since working at a scrapbook store, tonic has become one of my favorite brands to use. Most of their products are ergonomic and easy to use. Yes, the guillotine may seem a bit pricey, but it is well worth the money. Unlike many guillotines it is made so that your paper doesn't shift when you cut it. You can also cleany cut about 3 sheets of mid-weight cardstock at a time.
