            The only inconvenience is that the 12'' is the smallest model they make, otherwise it is durable and it cuts perfectly.

            Comments about Rotatrim 12" Mastercut Professional Rotary Cutter:

            The Professional Rototrim Rotary Cutter is very accurate.
            I use the Rototrim to cut folded card stock to make photography note cards. This cutter can cut many layers of cardstock at once, although it does reqiure more pushing/pulling efford to get through the layers.
            The plastic strip that holds the paper snug, is a bit tight for many layers of cardstock, so I find cutting one folded card at a time is easier in the long run for cutting hundreds of cards in a sitting.
            The only thing the company claimed about this cutter is "silent glide action", but not silent paper cutting! I do appreciate that it does not make a screaching sound like the previous rotary paper cutter I used before having the Rotatrim.
            The cutter must not be carried by the glide bars or the Rotatrim will be damaged.

            Comments about Rotatrim 12" Mastercut Professional Rotary Cutter:

            I am a photographer that does sports cards and laminated bookmarks (reason I got the cutter). I was using 2 cutters - one swinging arm and one razor slider. You get what you pay for - my only disappointment is that I did not purchase this cutter YEARS ago - AND - after seeing how absolutely accurate this is I wish I had ordered the 18" version instead. I will likely order it too for 'fine tuning' posters - if the printer leaves a white 'hair' down one edge - NO PROBLEM - this cutter can cut 1/2 of a hair CLEANLY. AWESOME product - don't look any further - get the Rotatrim... but make sure you get one large enough for your needs. Like I said - I'm not even disappointed - I'm just going to end up with 2 Rotatrims! :)

              Good rotary cutter. I have another rotary cutter from a different supplier and this Rotatrim is superior.
              Only problem is adjusting a photo for cutting with the rotary trimmer on the top. The cutter extends past the top of the cutting area and hides the top corner from view.

                    Comments about Rotatrim 12" Mastercut Professional Rotary Cutter:

                    Without a doubt, this is the best rotary trimmer I have owned. After many years of using both personal and professional Dahle trimmers and not being completely satisfied with their accuracy, I chose to make the switch and am so glad that I did. This trimmer is extremely accurate, built solid, and is perfect for trimming photos and paper up to 12x12. The rotary blade glides smoothly along the rails and the paper guide is attached firmly in place, making placement a breeze. Thanks RotaTrim for making such a quality product. Wish I had purchased you sooner.

                    I have used many cutters over the years and this is, withouta doubt, the best I have used. Accurate cuts...if you youmiss by a hair, it will allow you the shave off a hair'swidth. I use this model to cut photo business cards.Extremely well designed and built. Extremely sharp but safeto use. This is not the least expensive model one couldbuy, but it is well worth its price.
