    Mastercut 18" Rotary Cutter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality that can be seen Right out of the box you can see that this is a quality machine. I tried it out and it is a pleasure to use. A note for buyers. The maximum cut of this 18 trimmer is indeed 18. If you are trimming 13 x 19 paper, you will need to trim the short end first to get it down to 18, then trim the long side. So this 18 trimmer is advertised accurately. For my needs this works perfectly, but if you need more space, get the next bigger size. I would also caution against getting the next smaller size unless you are 100% sure you will never cut 13 x 19 to 12 x 18 and then want to fine tune your trim.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product I needed a cutter to trim 10 mil laminated photographs made into bookmarks. No one reviewing seems to use it for trimming laminated items. This does the trim perfectly, without leaving hard or sharp edges. And the trims I've tried so far, basic and very fine all were exact and perfect. No slippage. No mis-cuts. Trims effortlessly. I'm so impressed with the sturdiness and the quality construction. This will probably be the only trimmer I need unless I ever need to trim larger prints. Thanks to the other reviewers for recommending the 18 over the 15. Gives room to expand sizes I trim in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the Best. I am a new teacher and was recently hired to teach darkroom photography at a public school in Virginia. I immediately noticed they did not have anything appropriate to trim photos for dry mounting. A guillotine paper cutter is not the same and will never provide the same accuracy as a Rotatrim. This machine is incredible and durable. The double metal bar provides for no-shake accuracy. Most importantly, the product is safe. My high school students have unparalleled accuracy for trimming their photos without the risk of the inaccurate guillotine paper cutters. We will love this product in our classroom forever. Thank you B & H and thank you Rotatrim.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Built Like A Tank But Awkward To Use The trimmer is very heavy duty and should last for years but is not easy to use. I had been using a much less expensive Bidex Rotary Trimmer which has it's cutting guide above the paper so it was easy to see where the blade would cut. This Rotatrim M18 trimmer has it's cutting guide under the paper so you can't see where the blade will cut. Rotatrim recommends making 45 cuts to expose the photos's corners and then align the exposed corners to the exposed cutting guide which is below the paper. This is time consuming and makes trimming prints with more then one image even more difficult. I made a guide that allows me to see above the paper where the cut will will take place so it's faster but this is not a perfect solution as it requires extra steps, so from time to time I still have to use my old trimmer. A good solution would be a laser light trimming guide like some wood saws use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one fine tooled machine I've put the purchase of this trimmer off for years, even considered cheaper comparisons. I finally pulled the trigger a few weeks ago during a huge portrait print job. This cutter is absolutely amazing. Smooth, clean, precise. The adjustable paper guide is perfect. I used to take so much time cutting on my old rotary, sweating a little with each cut, this RotaTrim makes cutting almost a pleasure and I start working so fast I have to watch myself. I highly recommend this product and although I've only had it a few weeks it seems extremely well built and I plan to be using it for years and years to come. One of the best 'office/lab' investments I've made in quite a while. Certainly one I don't regret at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank God I got one! I primarily use enhanced matte paper. In the past, I have used paper cutters that cut poorly and leave a white edges because it only takes off the top layer of the paper. I have also had guides slip or the paper slip as I am cutting. I have had none of those problems with this one. The only issue I have with this cutter is really just a user error. I have problems matching up where the edge of the photo is on the paper. So I have to try multiple times to get it right at the edge of the photo. This will get better with experience.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality I just got this and it has several issues. the cutting part wont go all the way up as there is a screw sticking out of the plastic guard. its a cheap wood screw and it wood screw in any deeper as its made poorly and the partial bard is already stripped out. All wood screws are just screwed into the partial board no metal screws in metal selves! and on top of that the movable guide is crooked and there is nothing I can do to fix eater one of these problems, I would not pay more the $90 for a product of this qualatey, sending back ASAP.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hello straight cuts! This cutter isn't messing around. I use it all the time to cut card stock down to size and it cuts perfectly straight! This is a big deal because I need to run the paper through my printer. If the cut's not right, then the print's not right and the client's not happy. It will trim the tiniest bit off without bending the paper too. Perfect for handling the details! Also like how I don't need to struggle to move the cutter, it can handle whatever I put in it. Love this cutter!!
