    Product Overview:

    Cutting photographs, card stock, laminated documents and other material down to size requires a precision paper cutter. With literally dozens of paper cutters out there, most photographers use what's known as a rotary paper cutter or trimmer. Of the rotary paper cutters out there, one is used by more professionals than any other. This is the Rotatrim Professional M paper cutter.

    Rotatrim cutters, made in England, feature a build quality unprecedented by any other manufacturer. While these cutters are more of an investment than your standard rotary cutter, they are known for literally holding up for years without issue. With many cutter manufacturers outsourcing their equipment manufacturing to unsupervised factories, resulting in cheap build quality, the British-made Rotatrim cutters continue to feature some of the best build quality in the industry.

    So why is the Rotatrim Professional M paper cutters so popular? For one, it features a solid baseboard that is covered in a laminated MDF gridded coating. This baseboard sits on rubber feet. This added weight, combined with non-skid feet, helps keep the Rotatrim Professional M in place during the cutting process. This also makes it easy to align photos and other material for cutting.

    Another huge selling point for this cutter is the dual rail system and the all-metal cutting head. A flat tungsten steel strip sits on the base of the cutter and a hand-finished tungsten steel round blade rolls against it. The rolling blade is encased in a metal cutting head, which sits on two rails. These two chrome-plated steel rails prevent play in the cutting head, ensuring straight cut every time. As the blade rolls next to the base metal strip, the blade is sharpened. This is often referred to as a self-sharpening blade.

    Rotatrim cutters also have a high-cutting capacity with most models having a 3mm thick cutting capability. The model M24 and higher even feature a patented overload protection system. This makes it impossible to load the M24 and higher with too much paper. This prevents jams and keeps cutting running smoothly.

    Is this cutter good for scrapbooking? The Professional 'M' Series from Rotatrim is considered to be the best, bar none. The only downside, especially for at-home scrappers, is the initial cost. Most scrapbookers, however, end up having these trimmers. A five year warranty just goes to show you how much confidence Rotatrim has in their products. Office Zone has been selling these cutters for over a decade and they rarely if ever come back with issues.

    This cutter is particularly popular with professional photographers and are found in dark rooms, schools, colleges, photo labs and much more. This is simply one of the most robust and powerful rotary cutters in the world. It fits on most desks and tables and is remarkably portable.

    Are there any cutters than compare? While the Roatrim line is one of the best, Dahle rotary cutters are considered to be a good alternative.
