http://www.cutterpillar.com/

That's the website. It is a little much for me to pay for without seeing it....

No cutter cuts straight.

CM, Fiskars (except big one), cutterpede, I have tried most and end up moving on to another. Thank goodness my LSS Mom's Memories has yardsales where I can resell my rejects, but others seem happy to have.

PLEASE HELP.... or another cutter if you have a good one... I do a lot of my cropping at crops outside my home.
Thanks

You might want to read this thread at 2peas. There are some issues with it.
After I read this thread I decided not to get it.

I have one, just got it. Here are my thoughts..

Pros, cuts like butter, sharpens its own blade, and is sturdy.

Cons, won't cut anything but paper, can't cut more than 2 or 3 sheets less you damage your blade (instructions straight from the box!), storage tray stinks! Not worth the $90+ I paid.

I have this cutter and LOVE IT!!! But because of all the oooing and ahhhing over the cutterpillar I HAD to have one. It's going back tomorrow! BigGrin

I have a Cutterpillar and couldn't craft without it! I love mine and have no complaints. I've gone through many different paper trimmers over time, but none were exactly what I wanted. I have a Fiskars that I use when I travel to classes. But at home, my Cutterpillar is the star. My favorite two features that I can't live without are:

1. the light strip! I can see where I am cutting. I love it. This is SO valuable when trimming photos or patterned paper, or those other times where you need to see exactly where you're going to cut. The light isn't quite as handy on dark paper though, but that's to be expected.

2. the fact that I can cut the thinnest sliver from the paper successfully without mangling the paper. I can hardly do that with scissors. Since I make a lot of mistakes in crafting (I'm clutsy and impatient, but also a perfectionist), I have to do a lot of fixing. I LOVE this paper cutter for this. It makes me look good.

I also like the weight of it. It's sturdy and doesn't move around when I'm using it, but unlike my big old wood paper cutter that I've had for 30+ years, it doesn't require assistance to move it around.

I don't use the storage drawer underneath the Cutterpillar (mostly because I forget that it's there), so I don't find that to be an important feature for me. This is my "go to" paper trimmer now.

Last year at Scrapbook Expo in Ontario CA, I met part of the family who invented this product (and sells it). They were so lovely and I enjoyed hearing their story about creating this product and the road that they traveled to get to today. I'm glad that my money is going to support such a nice family business. As I was telling them the things that I liked about the paper cutter, a bunch of women were standing around listening and almost all of them bought one on the spot. Wow!
