I've basically found the Fiskars useless. The wheel kept
falling off. Too much maintenance required.
The C&H is a great mat cutter. I've owned two of them for over
25 years. When I purchased my wall mounted Speed Mat (scroll down for a
picture) about six years ago I sold the older one and kept this one for
trimming the mats to size.
The Falcon paper cutter (scroll down for the close up
pictures) is my favorite for cutting all kinds of paper, including ink
jet and photographic prints. It uses regular safety blades and can do a
great job in no time at all. I originally purchased one about 15 years
ago and wore it out. It took two years to find it again so I immediately
bought two, one for the basement framing room and one for my computer
You can now purchase it from B&H Photo.
The Premier trimmer is about 30 years old. It's the old style that's
made out of solid wood and has never warped. It's real handy for sizing
under 20 inch mat board without having to pull the C&H out from the
shelf under the table.
The Rototrim is the best
for trimming photographic paper. I use a 15 inch Rototrim for trimming the
photographs I get printed at Costco on 12x18 paper. I never have to cut
the 18 inch length and the 15 inch trimmer fits better on my work table.
