Fiskars Rotary Cutter

From time to time I will be giving a review of different products.  This is my personal opinion based on my experience.

I am going to start with the Fiskars Rotary Cutter.  This was one of my very first cutters.  It is an investment because it does not come cheap but I bought mine at Michael’s with a 40% coupon.  Although I do not use it on a regular basis for my scrapbooking I do not want to give it up.  This cutter works great for chipboard, felt, and multiple papers.  I use it for girl scouts projects, to cut chipboard strips and squares, and for large projects when a lot of cutting is required.  It gives a clean cut but you need to be sure to line up the paper with the measurements and not flush with the top or bottom.  You can purchase a variety of decorative blades which are easy to switch and can be stored in compartments built into the cutter.  I have had problems with the blade compartments staying closed (maybe because I store it upright under my desk) therefore I am unable to use these compartments to hold extra blades.  The cutter is large (but not heavy) and takes up a lot of space if you plan to use it day to day.  It has a rotary blade which has proven to be long-lasting.  There is a cutting mat that will also need to be replaced over time but can be rotated four different ways so this also is long-lasting.
