MBM Kutrimmer 1071 Guillotine Paper Cutter Review

MBM Kutrimmer 1071 Guillotine Paper CuttersGuillotine paper cutters are handy trimmers to have on hand for a wide variety of photography and paper cutting projects. Using the right paper cutter can mean the difference between complete frustration and absolute excitement. So which cutter should you use? One cutter I have had the chance to use on several occasions is the MBM Kutrimmer 1071 guillotine paper cutter (found here). This is my review.

The MBM Kutrimmer line of guillotine paper cutters is by far one of the most reputable around. There are over 8 different makes and models of Kutrimmer paper cutters available, with the biggest difference between models being the cutting length. These cutters are tough.

The Kutrimmer 1071 is an all-metal cutter, from the base to the handle. It has a cutting length of 28 ½”. For most people cutting photographs and letter-size paper / card stock, this length is more than enough. It has a 40 sheet cutting capacity. I have seen this cutter used to cut paper, photographs, card stock and laminated documents. There are few things this cutter can’t slice through.

The base of the cutter features a screen-printed guide of common cutting sizes. This makes it easy to line up photographs and other material for common cutting patterns.

The arm on this cutter is leveraged in such a way that cutting through 40 sheets of paper is really easy to do. It also helps that the blade is made from high quality metal and is razor sharp. Unlike many cutters out there, when the blade becomes dull it can be re-sharpened.

Unlike guillotine cutters of 10+ years ago, cuts on the 1071 are accurate and precise. This is due in part to the blade and in large part to the solid hand clamp. Are you cutting thin lightweight paper? No worries. The 1071 includes fold-away paper supports that keep delicate paper supported during the cutting process.

The Kutrimmer 1071 is also very safe to use. While the blade is extremely sharp, it is protected during the entire cutting process by a transparent Lexan safety guard.

This trimmer also features an adjustable back gauge, side guides (in inches & metric), a front gauge (rotary knob adjusted) and much more.

Simply put, the Kutrimmer 1071 is one of the best 28″ cutters on the market. It is solid, doesn’t move while cutting and creates straight cuts every time. I would personally recommend this cutter to family and friends.
