Rotatrim Professional “M” Series Paper Trimmer Review

Rotatrim Professional M Series Rotary Paper TrimmerNot all paper cutters are created equal, especially when it comes to precision cutting. There are several reasons for this.  If you are a photographer, or require precision cutting, you may want to consider using a Rotatrim Professional “M” Series paper trimmer. These Trimmers used to be known as the Rotatrim Mastercut series.

Why choose Rotatrim and what is so nice about the Professional line of paper cutters? There are several reasons why Rotatrim is the king of rotary (roller) paper trimmers and cutters. I am going to break down this cutter and explain why you may want to consider using a Rotatrim.

  • Cutting Blade: The cutting blade is really big in this Rotatrim cutter. This allows the blade to easily cut through thick paper and card stock without stumbling. Smaller blades require more force to get the same job done.
  • Rails: The Rotatrim Professional series paper cutters use two round rails. This adds a lot of extra stability to the cutting blade. If you have ever used an alternate rotary trimmer, you may have noticed how much play there is in a single-bar system.
  • Clamping Mechanism: The Rotatrim Professional series paper cutter has a plastic clamping mechanism that keeps paper in place. The clamp is activated by the cutting head, which means the maximum amount of cutting pressure is being applied where the blade is cutting.
  • Base: Many rotary paper trimmers and cutters use a folded sheet metal base. Rotatrim uses a wood bade which is much heavier. Because the base is heavier, there is a lot less movement in the cutter on the surface of a table. This allows for straighter cuts.

Rotatrim paper cutters are no longer just being used by photographers. There is a growing movement in the scrapbooking world by scrapbook to start using Rotatrim cutters. Most realize Rotatrim costs more than a Fiskars or Purple Cow trimmer, but they also realize that the Rotatrim cutter will last a decade or more and the cutting quality is unsurpassed.

There are eight different sizes available. These are the M-12, M-15, M-18, M24, M-30, M-35, M-42 and M-54. The number is the length of the trimmer in inches.

I like to think that I am open minded when it comes to Rotary paper trimmers. I have used Carl, Dahle, Fiskars, Keencut, Foster and other cutters. I have to say that Rotatrim is the king of them all. You can find our Rotatrim Professional Series paper cutters here. Our entire line of rotary paper trimmer and cutters can be found here.
