    This paper cutter has successfully served my pretty busy schools for 25 years... I've used it for photocopied material (both plain-80g/m² paper and 160gr/m²)as well as photos, magazines and even for alluminum covered cardboard. It was my secretary's best friend until I broke it down last May trying to cut 5 160 gr/m² reports in one go. I hope my secretary lives longer than the new Falcons I bought her.
    To me It's a Cheap, durable if you respect its limitations (Don't cut more than 3 sheets of 160gr/m² paper in one pass), easy to use, productive and without a doubt an IRREPLACABLE paper cutter that every office MUST HAVE.
    I bought 4 Falcons. 2 for my schools and 2 to give to good friends of mine.
    Congratulations to its designers and Manufacturers.

    Decent but not for me

    I needed perfectly straight edges for my photographs and the glowing reviews on this item made me think I'd found something special. Not so. Cuts are well...meh. Returned it and bought a nice Fiskars bamboo based guillotine cutter. It did cost about 3 times the price but I couldn't be happier. From anecdotes and my own experience I am now of the opinion that guillotine cutters outperform these various sliding cutters by a fair margin.

          Comments about Falcon (Marshall) Personal-Size Paper Cutter:

          We have used one of these for at least eight years at our house. It cuts so clean which is great for photos. I've used it for laminated card pieces for games at school.
          My daughter wanted one just like mine, but couldn't find one locally. She bought several other brands to use and still wanted one like mine. I found this paper cutter by Falcon (Marshall) online at B&H and she is thrilled to have it!
          Now she uses it for her classroom games.
          Also, it uses a standard, easy to find razor blade for when it needs to be replaced.
          Love it!

                Comments about Falcon (Marshall) Personal-Size Paper Cutter:

                I bought my first Falcon/Marshall in the early 1990's for about $. My family and I have used it constantly for the last 25+ years. It is outstanding. It's a simple design, the blades are cheap so you don't use them to the very last drop, and the mechanics cannot be improved upon - unless you'd make it all metal in which case it would be prohibitively expensive. I bought a new one just because I wanted a back-up when my current one wears out - I'm so thrilled. And I love the new color - mine was originally white but is now that ulgy yellowed plastic color. The aged color, however, doesn't affect its performance, hence 5 stars especially given the new color. Yea.

                  This product is excellent for crafts. The cuts are clean and neat and I love the idea of being able to replace the blade. I was heart-broken when my last one broke after 20+ years of use so I was ecstatic to find they were still being sold.
                  Love this cutter!

                    Had to buy another one due to the old one got stolen. Does everything it says. One reviewer wrote "initially cutter movement felt a bit rough." I agree, but a real short blast of silicone spray on the two white rollers made the cutter movement glide like it was on ice. Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

                      I needed a paper cutter to cut apart pages of a newsletter prior to scanning. An earlier cutter worked fine, but the blade became dull & I could not locate a replacement for any reasonable price. I purchased the Marshall cutter primarily because it was (1) Inexpensive, and (2) Uses inexpensive razor blades. The unit itself is lightweight plastic and is not too stable when being used. However, the cutter bar DOES hold the paper in place during the actual cutting. It takes a little experimenting to determine exactly where the paper will be cut, but once determined the cutter seems very accurate. Initially the cutter movement felt a bit rough, but a little silicone spray made a big difference. Overall, I would recommend this item for light-duty use.

                          This is the best papercutter that has ever been designed. Since it uses disposable razor blades you are always able to have a clean sharp edge. The cutter has everything going for it: accurate cutting, light weight, inexpensive razor blades plus a small form factor that can be stored anywhere.

                          I've used the guillotine type cutter as well as a a'drag blade" type cutter. I had serious issues with both types. This razor blade cutter is simply the best so far. Unlike the others you can line up any line on your project, even if it don't come to the edges of the paper, and get a perfect cut every time.
                          The instructions say to hold down the paper with your hand, but I simply hold it firm by applying pressure to the end on the guide bar.
