X-Acto Designer Series Craft Swivel Knife- Review

     Do you like to Craft? Do you get tired of having to use scissors for itty-bitty cutting jobs? I normally use scissors. Even those don’t always get the job done! They are sometimes bulky for the project and I might accidently cut the wrong thing. That’s a bummer…  When I craft, there are times when I need a better way to cut objects from cradstocks, paper, and sometimes, even cardboard. When I clip coupons, I do just that. Clip… well lots of clips, which I suppose is technically called clipping. How I loath that word. I clip for hours sometimes… Well, not anymore! I was so happy to review an assortment of Elmer’s and X-Acto products, among them was the
 X-Acto Designer Series Craft Swivel Knife!

     This bad-boy is a great tool. I’ve used it on multiple projects and just can’t get enough of it! I have another X-Acto Knife and sometimes I can’t get it to cut just right (my fault, not the products ;D) I really like the Swivel Knife. If I need to cut one way then the other, I don’t have to pick up the knife and reposition it. Its really user friendly and rotates 360 degrees. Now I can cut circles and curves with no problem at all. The blade is made from carbon steel, for reliability. The X-Acto Craft Swivel Knife also come with a safety cap which I love since I’m a but clumsy and don’t always pay attention to what I’m grabbing from my supplies. I haven’t cut myself yet!

     When I needed to cut my coupons last week, I used the X-Acto Designer Series Craft Swivel Knife, and it cut my clipping time (no pun intended) by almost 40 minutes. (Pardon my use of a newspaper as a cutting board, I have one now but didn’t then ;D) And just look how precise the cut is! This is a double coupon page and it went right through both with no problem! Where has this tool been my whole adult life?
Bottom line?
I really like this tool, it’s saved me alot of time, and hassle I can put towards other Mommy Duties in need of my attention (yes, hassle is involved.) I would recommend this product to anyone who likes to be precise in their crafting, or clipping coupons! It’s really sharp, so be sure you don’t go out and buy this for a child!
That wouldn’t be a good idea. I’m sure it would work great for Scrapbookers and for those who love to work with pictures or cardmaking. I haven’t used it on fabric, though I will now that I have a cutting mat! I also used this tool to make greeting cards and that worked out great for the smaller items I needed to make!
More on that… to come!
While I was povided an assortment of X-Acto and Elmer’s products to review, that in no way influenced my opinion.

However, I liked the product enough to write a positive review and share my experiance with you all.
