I saw some people using this on youtube, and since I had a nice discount coupon (even though it isn't that expensive anyway) so if I didn't like it it didn't hurt my pocket at all. What I like about it is that I don't cut my clumsy self on it, and if I drop it it's still all good. I also like that I can use different pressure to get the result that I want, and I think one of the reasons why there are so many sections of blades is because there are a lot of paper fuzz that comes with using a distressing tool. It's almost like thick paper "dust" in a way. If I inked the edges of my paper, and then use it, it doesn't take all of the color off (the way that I use it) and I'm able to put a lighter color of ink over the part that I used the distress tool.
What I don't like is how messy it is. There is little to no way of containing the paper mess that results from it.If I use it basically inside a garbage bag I still get paper on my floor. To get the particles of paper off of the tool itself I gently bang the side of it and blow gently to get most of the paper off, which is fine by me. Also, there are particles of paper still on your project that you can shake or gently pat it until most of it is off, but as I finish the rest of the project particle of paper still get everywhere. If I am re-inking the edges with foam (I use the foam that comes with the Tim Holtz distressing ink tool) and I get little bits of paper in my foam and into my stamping ink. It all goes away eventually but I liken it to having an animal shedding in the summer. It does settle down eventually as you work on your project.

So I love the tool, I like the results it gives, but it's a real mess to use.

I've used the Paper Distresser COUNTLESS times - ever since I took a workshop with Tim Holtz. It distresses perfectly, you can even make some edges look more "worn away" than others, creating countless possibilities. From the handy hanging loop (I hand mine from a hook on my worktable) to the seemingly ever-sharp blades ---- this is a 5 star tool.

For all craters who like the shabby look. This little tool is remarkable. I have one of the Binders distress machines and find myself by passing the Zunt unit to distress my paper with the Rangers distress tool.

Little tool, low in cost and I purchased two, glad I did.

You will not be unhappy with this low cost little tool.

This is a great product. I was going to buy from 'Close To My Heart', but this was cheaper. I all ready used it. Twice. And every time I was very happy with the outcome. Will buy more of Tim Holtz products.

I thought I would use this more than I actually do. You can achieve the same effect by running your scissors down the paper, but this tool does make that a little bit easier. Now that I am more into paper crafting and mini album making, I don't 'always' distress the edges of my paper. If I'm looking for 'shabby chic' then I'll use it, but generally it sits in the drawer.

Works well for distressing paper edges, though not as well as the deckled edge folding/wetting/tearing. Still, it adds some texture to smoothly cut edges. I found it easier to use on sturdier watercolor paper and cardstock than on regular printer paper. The bit of distressing this tool gives is enough to make distressing ink (applied with pad or dabber) much darker than the rest of the page. The more you rub the distresser on the edge, the rougher it gets, so you can vary the degree of the effect. I found it did a better job than distressing by rubbing scissors over the edge, and was safer and easier to use.

This product is ok but if you are into serious distressing I found the Zutter Distress it All to be much more effective and easier to use but it does cost quite a bit more. Since I purchased my Distress it All, I never use my Tonic one, but it might be handy for taking along to crops since its small and very portable. You can use it to get mild distressing along the edge of a single piece of cardstock but I wouldn't recommend it for use with chipboard, water color paper etc.

Amazing little gizmo! I purchased both the much more expensive Zutter distrezz-it-all tool,
which i also like very much, (it's electric and pretty powerful for distressing thicker stock among
other things), so I was amazed to get something as inexpensive is this Holz paper distresser and
find it works so well.
