As you know, Christine found herself in dire need of replacing her paper cutter this spring and started on a 2 day odyssey to find a new cutter.

After the X-ACTO Heavy Duty 12" Laser Trimmer went back to Office Max. Christine went back into research mode and decided to give the Tonic Studios Guillotine Paper Trimmer 12-Inch by 12-Inch a try. While she loves this product, she still was determined to find out if there was a replacement for the Fiskars blade.

Christine loves her Fiskars cutter, but she needed to replace the blade on her Fiskars 12 Inch Bypass Guillotine Paper Trimmer Cutter. While after calling Fiskars customer service number she found out that they do not sell the replacement blades. However, Fiskars stands behind their products and offered to replace the entire cutter FREE of charge including shipping.

We would like to acknowledge Fiskars for standing behind their product and replacing the broken cutter (it was almost 3 years old and the original blade had worn out from use). There are not many companies that still stand behind their products like Fiskars did! Bobbi was so impressed; she went out to Hobby Lobby and used her 40% off coupon to get her own cutter.


* Easy to assemble - all you have to do is pull it out of the box and attach the handle

* Accurate cutting

* Cuts multiple sheets of paper and cardstock. (The box says up to 10 sheets of paper, but for heavy cardstock, I limit it to 3-4.)

* Blade stays in place when not in use with a lock


* limitations on amount of paper it can (up to approx 6 sheets of paper and 3-4 sheets of cardstock depending on weight)

Overall, this cutter is fantastic!!! It cuts straight every time! The blade is sharp, but the cutter feels completely safe when using it. This cutter would definitely stand up to heavy duty use, is a great value for the price, and would be perfect for all types of users from the occasional user to the heavy duty users.

Out of 5 possible crabs, this one will earn 5 crabs!
