I'm going to have to give this all the stars because my brother asked for this SPECIFIC cutting mat for his birthday and my brother does NOTHING average. He's that guy. That guy that decides to be interested in something and then becomes an *actual* expert at it and only does things if he can do them excellently. I'm not that cool. But, he is. If he's into something, he goes 100% and does TONS of research before knowing exactly what he needs. This was exactly what he needed for whatever magic he does. He must cut things on it. I don't know. He must cut many, magical things. But the bottom line is: if my brother approves it, then it's the best one out there. I don't even know if it's a great deal or not. But I can tell you that if you want the best one, this is most likely it. You will not be disappointed.
