I bought my 7th paper trimmer about 2 weeks ago. I haven't used it yet. It is a Fiskars triple track. It was on clearance for $14.99 was $34.99.

I kinda liked my other Fiskars that is similar to this one, but it cut crooked. Maybe, this one won't.

I loved my Xacto 8" guillotine, but the blade dulled and wasn't cutting paper good anymore.

I do have my 12x12 Fiskars guillotine cutter, but it is too big most times, and I do not want to walk over to it every time I want to cut a piece of paper.

Well, let's hope this one cuts straight or straight enough that I don't notice it's not. LOL Flapper

I have been using the Green Cricut Paper trimmer. It was great for the first 12 months but I think the extendable arm is on it's way out. I've noticed some of my projects aren't that straight.

I may keep my eye out for a Fiskars Smile

I started out with one of those green ones as well. Loved it! But then it got hard to find the blades in town. Then I started just buying a new green trimmer every time my blade dulled. I have about 5 of them now, or did. And I have like a gazillion score blades for them now as well. But no cutting blades. Glare

I already passed on 2 of my trimmers to my kids. Still have 5 sitting on a shelf under my desk.

I have several of the higher end trimmers, but find myself grabbing that little green one all the time. It's a handy little puppy.

I love my one fiskars I have.. and it has a lifetime warranty which I noticed after my first one had something break (wire) and bought a 2nd one. I thought I'd call the company to find out and they are sending the replacement part for that one. I just had to send them a picture of what part was broken. Was great customer service. So I know it is definitely lifetime warrantied if you got one of the ones that says that. :) File that info away in case you need to use it.

If anyone is looking for a paper trimmer recommendation I have the Martha Stewart one. I've had it quite awhile now and it cuts great!

I love Fiskars paper cutters! I started with a small one and then got a bigger one and now have the folding 12x12 one. The bigger ones cut much more accurately than the smaller ones did.

I am still using my original Cricut cutter, but I can't tell you how many blades I've been through! LOL! I've decided to try the CP Pro v3! I'm expecting this to be the last cutter I'll have to buy! LOL! The blade is self-sharpening - so I should NEVER need a new blade. I'll be sure to post back here to let you all know how it works.

Fiskars trimmers are wonderful. I bought the ProCision one(with a coupon) and LOVE it!

Okay... so I just played with my new paper trimmer and I think I might like it. I cut down some of my recent paper scraps to put into my scrap box and it did shred a couple of pieces, but once I switched the blade out to the Titanium coated blade I got on Sunday, it cut the same pieces perfectly!! So, I guess I'm going to save the blade that came with it for when my other blades no longer cut well.

I'm even liking that I do not have to really use the swing out arm to cut something at 5 inches!! My other Fiskars trimmer was only a 4.5" deck and the 5" was hard to find on the swing out arm because it was right in the crease of the swing out. Glare

Thanks to everyone for the comments. BigGrin

I have ordered this cutter too and I can not wait to get it. I love my Fiskar's cutter but I hate how fast the blades dull and lets face it these blades are not all that cheap when you are replacing them weekly.

Hi!
So I used a 50% off coupon from JoAnn's and picked up the Fiskars Procision Paper Trimmer. So far it's very nice, I did a few sample cuts and no ripping or tearing. I love that when it's folded it does 5-1/2", no more guessing

I have a fiskars paper trimmer and an old antique one (I never use) but I still love my craft knife and straight edge. my familly laughs at me all the time for having this tool I never use. My daughter loves it. I don't love it. I go through blades like crazy for my craft knife but heck it makes me happy.

Last November I treated myself to the Genesis paper trimmer. I love it for paper and thin materials. For chipboard, etc, I still use my Tonic guillotine trimmer.

I looked into the Tonic and Genesis cutters before I purchased the one I have now, but I wanted a semi portable trimmer that I can keep on my shelf below my desk for easy access when I do not feel like walking over to my guillotine. Which is quite often that I do not want to get up. LOL Actually it is because my guillotine is on the desk below the TV, and hubby is usually watching TV or playing a game when I'm crafting. Blink
