For the longest time I have been baffled by the art of paper cutting. I have never had very much success (read: accuracy) with an X-acto knife. Until tonight. I picked up this little retractable knife on a whim at Target, of all places. The price was right, so I took a chance without high hopes.
I finally gained some fluency and joy getting in the nooks and crannies that often elude scissors. I can tell there is still a learning curve for gaining mastery, but at last it is a pleasure. Lots depends on paper weight (and good light!) but I found pieces I’d cut falling away effortlessly. I’m very pleased with this new tool. And it comes with four replacement blades so even if I can’t find them in the future the disposable life has been greatly extended.
