If you need a durable paper trimmer with a high cutting capacity, one device you should know about is the MBM Kutrimmer 1046. Let's take a look at this device's strengths and weaknesses to see how it stacks up.
The 1046 has a terrific cutting capacity that makes it ideal for medium-sized jobs. It can cut as many as 30 sheets of 20 lb. bond paper at a time. This will make it easy for you to get all of your paper cut quickly.
This trimmer can cut paper that's up to 18 inches long. You'll be able to easily cut letter-sized sheets (8.5" x 11") as well as larger ones.
One of the best things about this cutter is that its blade is incredibly durable. For example, Solingen steel was used to make the blade, and it's one of the finest metals available. The blade will get dull after a while, but it can be removed and resharpened so you can continue using it.
The 1046 is safe to use thanks to a safety guard that's made out of Lexan, a high-quality plastic. This guard is fan-shaped and is designed to keep your hands as safe as possible. It's also transparent so you'll have an unobstructed view of what you're doing. There's also a cutting line to make things easier.
The base of the 1046 has cutting guides printed on it. These guides indicate some of the most common paper sizes so you'll be able to easily trim your materials. The base is made out of metal so it's very durable.
This trimmer has a automatic paper clamp to keep sheets in place when you cut them. When you're done, the "Easy Lift" lever will make it a snap to remove your paper.
Although this device has a pretty impressive cutting length, it can't be used to trim really big pieces of paper. To do that, you'll need a large-format trimmer.
The 1046 has a gray and red color scheme that may be a eyesore for some people. This trimmer is really meant for use in more industrial-like environments (i.e. print shops) and may not blend in well with office surroundings. Also, this cutter is large because it measures 27.5" (depth) x 15.5" (width) x 15" (height). It's going to take up a lot of room and it cannot be mounted on a wall.
The 1046 comes with a 1-year limited warranty, which is a good thing. However, wearables are excluded from this coverage.
