There is no way to lock the blade down and there is a hidden spring inside always trying to push it back up.

I bought this at a local art supply store. It produces very nice results but is physically taxing to use. My thumb is still numb as I'm writing this review. The blade of this cutter swings down when you push the indent in the black plastic with your thumb. There is no way to lock the blade down and there is a hidden spring inside always trying to push it back up. At first I used a reasonable amount of pressure and, even though I didn't feel the blade swinging up, apparently the blade kept swinging up just enough to not cut through sections of the mat board. So I have to really jam down hard with my thumb to make sure it doesn't miss any sections, and thus I ended up with a numb thumb after only a couple of mats. I'm cutting 1.25mm thick matboard that's like thick cardstock.

The other option is to adjust the blade depth so you're cutting deeper into the sacrificial mat below the one you actually want to cut. That way if the blade pushes up a bit it might not matter. But then you're cutting through more material and the tool becomes harder to push. Either way, you're exerting a lot of pressure and it's taxing on fingers and wrists.

So I went to the hardware store and found some #3 machine screws that fit the two pre-drilled holes to either side of the cutting blade. I added small washers and wrapped some thick fishing line I had laying around once under the washer, tightened it down, then ran the line around the black plastic such that pulling it tight pulled the blade down. Screwing the line down on the other side keeps the blade pulled down and the cutter is much easier to use. I still wouldn't say it's like butter as another reviewer said, but it doesn't hurt my thumb.

This product is a must-have for anyone considering making their own mats. I'd advice getting the Logan cutting board too, as the tool is a but difficult to use on its own. However, if you have a good ruler and a steady hand it works great without! Very pleased!

I've used one other type of matte cutter and my corners always turned out horrible. This cutter is amazing!!! The cut-outs I made look like they were done by a machine! It works amazingly with the Logan 24inch ruler. There is a line opposite of the blade so you know when to stop so the corners come out perfectly. Using the cutter with the ruler makes it almost idiot proof as well. I always get confused which way I need to have the cutter facing to make the bevel the right direction, but with the ruler and guide line (on the cutter, opposite the blade) it's so much easier- if the guide line won't match up with the lines you've drawn on the matte, then you've got it going in the wrong direction and your bevel will be wrong. I've cut 4-5 large picture frames worth (with about 5-6 cut-outs each) and the blade is still super sharp. It also comes with one extra blade. It's amazing how sharp the blades are! Cuts through matte like a hot knife through butter!! Excellent product!
