Westcott Multi-Purpose Guillotine Trimmer, 12", Black (16559) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive quality Guillotine style trimmer! This is the best guillotine trimmer I have used to date. I have had experience with different types and sizes, but always found some small problem areas with them s.a. not cutting complete straight towards the bottom, not being able to cut straight through several pages at the same time or the cutting line not matching up with the edge. This is the first trimmer that I have encountered that doesn't have any of these issues. I was also able to cut through on uneven number of pages (a stapled brochure) at the same time without it affecting the straightness of the cut. Looking at the sturdiness of the cutting blade, I think I will be able to use this trimmer for a long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It will cut! Decent paper cutter. I cut a lot paper for my art students so we put it through the paces. Time will tell how it holds up though. Just some initial thoughts: Handle is built really close to the shearing edge which is nice. Very minimal gap and the paper doesn't slip while cutting. The finger guard is a little to low for cutting 10 sheets of paper. I comfortably cut 6-8 with ease. Very light weight with decent structural plastic underneath for strength.The centimeter/inch ruler about 5 inches from the top doesn't really make sense though, I wish there was a ruler at the top and the bottom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest Trimmer I've EVER used! When I first picked up this trimmer I was very surprised. It is very light-weight. I was anxious to see if it would cut the way I needed it too. I was not disappointed. My paper were straight and the blade cut very easily. If you want a trimmer that is easy to move and will cut pictures, paper, etc. easily I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for at home or in the classroom! The guillotine trimmer is lightweight which is great if you need to move it from room to room or travel with it. I used it at home to trim some scrapbook paper. The 12 inch size fit the paper perfectly. It sliced nice and clean. The safety lock is very secure so the blade did not move or slip when moving it around or removing it from the box. It also has a finger guard which limits the amount of paper you can slice, but your fingertips are protected. The handle on the blade is a good length and easy to grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! This is a great size for a desktop guillotine. It handles a standard paper size, yet it's not so huge that it takes up the entire workspace. There are rubber feet so it doesn't slip, and it sits solidly - no wobbling. The blade is super sharp, and there is a convenient well at the top of the guillotine to hold paper clips. Very satisfied with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality for plastic It was a nice surprise ti find the quality to be right up there on an item that is light weight and plastic. I was expecting the weight to be a negative and it isn't, in fact it's a positive and was able to cut through about 10 sheets of paper without any of the sheets wandering or the trimmer wanting to fly off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sharp! This took me back to grade school when these were in every classroom. The blade is very sharp and cuts with ease.I was slightly disappointed in the base it is lightweight plastic, make sure you are on a solid area before cutting because it's lightweight makes it move. Overall it has great cutting ability
