I bought this as a Self-Healing mat and it is not. I have had self-healing mats that you can make a cut on and neither see nor feel any evidence of the cut. When using this mat, you can see and feel the cut. When the blade hits a previous cut at a small angle, it tends to veer away from your intended cut. Also, this mat is stiff and doesn't lay completely flat. If you want a true self-healing mat, this isn't it.

Definitely a wise purchase and useful for so many applications beyond typical crafting and machine quilting!. I purchased the rotary cutter and replacement blades as well and have used both numerous times. Just yesterday I wanted to trim the decorative braid off the front edges of a vest I am constructing. I decided the braid was too ornate for the garment and rather than having to use a seam ripper to remove the stitching - I was able to cut a clean 3/8 inch from the edge of the garment. So buy both sized mats and quality cutters - a very wise purchase. I would also advise storing the self-healing mats on a flat surface.

WARNING: The Fiskars Mat contains chemicals that caused severe eye irritation and smelled like a skunk. When we called Fiskars to find out what causing the problem they told me to put it out in the garage for 6 months. When I told them it was causing my eye to swell shut they transferred me immediately to the legal department. This is my last Fiskars product purchase.

i purchased this mat because i needed a good all purpose self healing mat. this one seemed affordable so i grabbed it without doing much research. after a few uses, i'm looking to purchase a new one. i like the size but it's kind of flimsy. the edges are curling up so it doesn't lie flat at all and the holes at the top and sides take away from the cutting surface and are useless to me. next time, i'll go for one that has a sturdier backing.

Have had it for about a year and it is completely rounded at the edges. Cannot get it to lay flat anymore. Have tried counter-rolling it, putting heavy things on it, etc. Try a different manufacturer because this one will NOT hold up.

Bought for husband. Kind of thin, not really flexible, unlike others I have come across. Will be looking for another.

It is just the right size, and doesn't take up too much space. I love it with all the measurements and such.

Though I did not buy this on Amazon, it's a great mat. One side is self healing and the other is not. Both sides will stain. It's better to stain your mat rather than ruining your furniture or counter-tops. Keep in mind, deeper cuts from too much pressure will not heal. Perfect for card making, scrapbooking and cutting foam for cling rubber stamps. I sometimes use this mat over my the EK Success glass mat or the Bazzill easy clean up mat.
