Great cutting support
Hones blade tip as you cut
Helpful grid and graduation for measuring and cutting on the fly
Questionable "self healing" properties, I'd call it psudo-self healing.
I've used this cutting mat for a few Pepakura projects since having purchased it, cutting shapes out of 100 lb card stock.
The mat works well for its intended purpose, providing great support for meticulous cutting with an xacto knife. The size is great for letter size paper projects, scrap booking or photos. I noticed it even hones the tip of the xacto after extended use. The grid and graduations on the mat are very clear and helpful for measuring and cutting on the fly.
The price is fair, and the Amazon price seems to be a dollar or two less than other retailers.
The only con, and the reason it lost a star, is because I questions its "self healing" claim. I expected the cutting surface to be made of some kind of silicon that bonds back together after being cut, i.e., self healing. The mat some what does this but not completely. There are no gaping gashes in the mat, but its apparent were cuts were made as pictured in the attached photo. However, this does not seem to hinder the functionality of the mat. Regardless, for the price, its a good buy!
So after looking around at the various cutting mats available, it came down to this one, an Alvin and a Dhale. I ruled out the Alvin because I really didn't want a green mat. The dahle mats look and seem very nice, and have great reviews (in fact I have a black one on the way as well), but only the black one seemed suitable for my needs; it has a black background and light gray guidelines. The blue Dahle is nice, but I don't feel there's enough contrast between the background and the guidelines. A shame really, because blue is my favorite color. As for the transparent Dahle, they really need to give that one an overhaul, as there is nearly no contrast between the background and guidelines. Blue guidelines would make the transparent Dahle much more desirable, and more importantly, useful and functional.
So after ruling out the Alvin, and blue and transparent Dahle mats, I ordered the X-Acto. Shipping was prompt, packaging was very sufficient for the item and the price was very good (ordered from shoplet). As for the cutting mat itself, it's absolutely fantastic. It's a nice light gray with light blue guidelines. The contrast is perfect. It's a 5 layer design, like most of the better brands. What really surprised me is the thickness. This cutting mat is twice that of my Fiskars.
I am completely satisfied with my purchase. If you need a good, thick, reliable cutting mat, give the X-Acto brand a good look. My Fiskars has served me well, and still has a place in my workspace, but it's taking the bench while the X-Acto becomes my front runner.
