I have been wanting this trimmer for so long and when I went to the Boys Store earlier this year I was pumped when I saw one on their shelves. What made it even better is that they have a 50% coupon this week. Needless to say its on my desk and I LOVE it!

Question for you about it. When I used mine there was some greasy residue on my paper that I was trimming. Did you experience the same thing. I keep meaning to just cut some scraps with it to see if the situation resolves its self but have not had a chance to yet.

I think this trimmer is on my wishlist. I'm just having difficulty buying one because of the cost AND because my other Fiskars trimmer works perfectly... maybe I need a little convincing... what makes this trimmer so much better than the others?

I am looking for a new trimmer also. Please post about this trimmer and let us know why it is worth the money.

Whooo yooo for you!!! How much was it? I want to compare to prices at Js.

I've been wanting one of these, too. I have one on my Amazon wish list. I've noticed that the prices have come down, but still want to comparison shop.

I got mine for $35 at J's on Black Friday because it was 50% off and I think J's had an additional 20% off your whole purchase coupon. It was SO worth even twice that price, though. Maybe more.

I've used it for 5 months as my primary trimmer and it still cuts straight. You never have to replace the blade. No jagged edges either. Love it so much.

Cons - the 6" mark is right where the trimmer folds. I think there's a YouTube video that shows you how to deal with this, but I haven't watched it yet. Also, it's huge, and when unfolded takes up a TON of space. I keep it folded up and can still use it, which is nice.

The trimmer is $120 at Joann's right now. I used the 50% off M's coupon there this week because my M's doesn't carry them.

Anandircl, you got a REALLY good deal. Good for you.

Amazon has it for $86.49. It was $119.99 so it has come down a bit.

I just bought new blades for my current Fiskers trimmer, but I might watch to see if there are any smokin' deals for Black Friday this year.

I wish that I could find it locally for a great price. I'll probably wait for a Black Friday deal this year.

Cons - the 6" mark is right where the trimmer folds.


It's actually near the edge of the white on the side that folds under - but it's actually cut off by a 16th of an inch (or something - I can't quite remember now). I solved this by using a piece of 1/4 inch washi tape and running it along the 6 1/4 inch mark. The edge of the washi will be your mark for 6 inches.

I have this trimmer and it does cut good when you are cutting towards yourself but if you try to cut upwards it leaves jagged edges. I hate this as I always leave it down after cutting and forget to move it back to top before cutting. Guess I will have to learn to bring blade back to top every time as it seems this is common on this cutter.

I bought this trimmer about 6 months ago. Thanks for the info on how to figure out the measurements on the fold....that's the only thing that I don't like about it.

I got it on Black Friday. It was 60% off and then there was a 25% off early bird coupon for regular and sale prices. I have been thrilled with mine, so glad I bought it.

Thanks for pointing out the jagged cutting thing too. I was having that issue as well.
