This video compares Fiskars Basic Paper Trimmer vs. Fiskars Surecut Deluxe Paper Trimmer, which is one of my favorite tools for papercrafting and assembling my family photo album. The Deluxe Fiskars Trimmer has a wide measuring surface and wire that shows you exactly where the blade will cut. The added features are well worth the additional $10 over the basic model. I only cut one sheet at a time, and maybe this is the reason I never have had any issues with the blade or the wire, even with over a year of daily use.
Comparison of the Basic Fiskars Paper Cutter and the larger Deluxe version with wire guide. I’ve used this Fiskars’ Deluxe Surecut Paper Trimmer for over a year and have never had any problems with the wire fraying. It’s my favorite paper trimmer of all time, and I’ve tried quite a few! It’s got a nice large 6″ x 12″ deck which is big enough to not have to pull out the extension arm very often, but compact enough for easy storage.
