Fiskars Paper Trimmers
Safe paper trimmer
It is simply impossible to make a genuine straight, right-angle cut on paper using scissors, or even a razor blade and straight edge. The old guillotine paper cutter could deliver a clean cut, but at the risk of taking your fingers away. Fiskars, the scissors makers, invented a cutter with a tiny blade mounted on a hinged holder that zips through paper without any possible harm, even to the youngest children. It’s fast, accurate, and crisp.
