MBM Kutrimmer 1038 Paper Cutter Review

MBM Kutrimmer 1038 Guillotine Paper TrimmerAre you in need of a versatile, multi-purpose paper cutter that can be used to cut photographs, paper, laminated material and more? Guillotine paper trimmers are great multip-purpose cutters and the Kutrimmer 1038 (found here) may be a model you should consider using. I have used this paper cutter and this is my review.

You may remember the good ol’ days of the wooden base guillotine trimmers. They were rickety, often dull and seemed to always cut paper crooked. Gone are those days. The MBM Kutrimmer 1038 uses a similar method for cutting paper, but is improved 10 fold.

The MBM Kutrimmer 1038 by Ideal is made entirely of metal. The base is metal, the arm is metal and the cutting blade is made from a high quality alloy. The build quality is top notch and it is extremely stable. Gone are the days of crooked arm cutters.

The MBM Kutrimmer 1038 is capable of cutting up to 50 sheets of paper. This isn’t difficult to do. Many “dull” cutters require a lot of force to cut the paper. The 1038 requires little effort and the razor-sharp blade easily cuts through the paper.

Don’t be concerned about the razor-sharp blade. The Kutrimmer 1038 features a plexiglass guard that prevents bodily injury. You can see this guard in the photograph.

One of the biggest improvements in the Kutrimmer 1038 versus other cutters is the clamping mechanism. One of the reasons cuts on this machine are so straight and accurate (other than the sharp blade) is that the clamping mechanism keeps the paper still and in place.

The Kutrimmer 1038 also includes an easy-to-use sliding guide that makes it easy to adjust the cutter for measured cutting. The base includes a lined guide for common paper sizes. A catch tray on the side of the cutter keeps cut pieces of trimmed paper in place for easy cleanup.

Mobility with the Kutrimmer 1038 is pretty easy. It weighs in at 29 pounds, which means it’s very easy to move around and can be used on almost any surface.

Overall I consider this to be a pretty nice cutter and highly recommend it. You can find the MBM Kutrimmer 1038 here. You can find our entire selection of guillotine paper trimmers here.
