This is very lightweight and easy to use.
Peggy Spencer
I don't need it for formidable projects so it's just great for me and I would highly recommend it for light duty.

For what it's worth, unlike the Amazon picture, the board is dark gray with a greenish handle. It's nearly all-plastic (feels cheap but it looks okay from a distance) with the exception of the blade itself which appears to be thin steel and a the bolts that keep it together. The only assembly needed is attaching the handle (just push it) onto the blade assembly.

The trimmer features:

- inch and metric rulers
- a protective guard rail
- a blade latch hook
- a largely meaningless 10-year limited warranty (you pay for shipping, does not seem to cover the blade)

Putting it to the test, I found that it does cut photo paper well. The cut is straight and the blade cuts through the paper with no difficulty. Because of the guard rail, I doubt that you can squeeze more than a few sheets at a time but that's not a big issue for me because I will be cutting photos and I doubt that I will ever stack more than 2 or 3 sheets at the most.

Inside the box there's a note that says that Swingline is GBC's new name.

One (almost) good comment on the seller. Shipping was quick and the item came in perfect condition but the packaging wasn't exactly state of the art.

Six months update:

Still cuts well so that self-sharpening claim on the blade may hold some truth. On the other hand, I only cut a couple hundred sheets so I can say it's great for casual use and it COULD be good for heavier cutting activities.

I bought this paper cutter to help with making my wedding invitations. It worked perfectly and the blade is still sharp even after cutting over 100 sheets of cardstock and vellum! I can't wait to use it again for my scrapping and thank you cards. This cutter saved me so much time! I highly recommend this product for home use.

My wife is a coupon queen and I was watching her print coupons on the computer and then manually cut them out with a scissors. I was thinking that there has to be a better way! I saw this shredder as a Black Friday deal and purchased it immediately. Now she can take several pages of coupons and have them all cut out in under a minute vs. doing it by hand which takes forever and tends to come out crooked. It's a real time saver!

The appearance and color of the paper cutter very closely resembles the photo on Amazon. Some of the other reviewers claim theirs was a somewhat different color. That really doesn't matter to me because its not like I need to match my furniture or carpet to the thing.

This particular paper cutter is for smaller work, but larger cutters are available. We typically use it for 8.5 by 11 pages so the larger models would simply take up more space. The unit seems to be sturdy enough for our occasional usage. It should last for years to come. Plus, you get a straight line every time!

Any parent with kids in school has stayed up way past their bedtime working on projects the little darling "forgot" to tell you about until the night before it was due. I've had blisters on my fingers from cutting and cutting by hand, so I decided to buy one of these paper cutters for the next time. I bought mine at Walmart, for about $26.

I was a little put off by the all-plastic base and unit's overall light weight, but with 100 little squares to cut out for the latest school project I was willing to give it a try. I'm very happy with the way it works, although it takes a little practice to cut exactly where you want it to. The blade is SUPER sharp (my bleeding knuckle assures you) and the cutter should only be used by adults. It cuts up to 10 regular pages (about 5 pages of construction paper) with ease. In fact, it works better with 2 or more pages than with one.

One hint I learned is that you need to hold the paper very securely with your left hand, so it can't be pulled crooked as you lower the blade with your right hand. Also, as you lower the cutting bar to cut, use a slight inward pressure on the handle, to keep the blade slicing right up against the guide.

This is a great little paper cutter and I'm "looking forward" to all those late nights when we'll be chopping and pasting.
