Welcome to MyBinding video. Let's take a look at the Ideal Kutrimmer 1135, MBM's 13 3/4-inch guillotine-style paper trimmer. This is an all-metal, solidly built trimmer. An excellent feature is the paper holder. It moves up and down with the movement of the arm and can be overridden here with this lever. It holds papers nice and secure so they don't slip around and your cuts are perfect every time. In addition to that, the blade is 13-3/4 inches long, allowing for a lot of cutting surface. It's incredibly safe and the paper holder also doubles as a great finger guard. There are plenty of measuring tools on the face of the machine both in English and metric as well as a movable fence that clamps down, assuring you consistency of cuts within a project. The fence is pretty long, accommodating most of the blade length. It's great for trimming paper, card stock, photos and laminated materials and can handle up to 25 sheets of 20-pound paper in a single trim. We tried it out, it worked with no hassle. And that's the Kutrimmer 1135 by MBM. For more demos, reviews and how-tos, check out mybinding.com.
MBM Kutrimmer 1135 Guillotine Paper Cutter Review
Guillotine paper cutters make it easy to perfectly trim your documents. If you're looking for a durable trimmer, you should check out the MBM Kutrimmer 1135. Here's all you need to know about it including what kind of grade it deserves.
The Kutrimmer 1135 has a pretty good cutting capacity. It can handle up to 25 sheets of paper at once so you'll be able to trim your documents in very little time.
You'll be able to cut documents of different sizes because this device has a 13.75-inch cutting length. Trimming letter-sized documents won't be a problem because they measure 8.5" x 11". However, cutting legal-sized paper (8.5" x 14") will be a bit more difficult unless you plan on trimming the short side of the document.
This cutter has a blade that's been fashioned out of Solingen steel. This is a very high-quality metal that will produce clean cuts every time you use the trimmer. The blade can even be removed so you can have it sharpened. This will help keep your trimmer in great shape.
If you're concerned about safety, you can rest easy because the Kutrimmer 1135 is extremely safe to use. It's equipped with a Lexan safety guard that will keep your hands away from the blade. (Lexan is a high-quality plastic.) The safety guard even has a cutting line so you'll know where exactly to trim your document.
The Kutrimmer 1135 has a paper clamp that has what MBM calls an "Easy Lift" lever. This lever makes removing your paper from the device very easy. Plus, there's an adjustable back gauge.
This device's extremely base is made out of metal and it has cutting guides printed on it. The unit even has side guides that have both metric and standard measurements. Plus, there are some rubber feet on the bottom of it to help the trimmer stay in place when you use it.
The Kutrimmer 1135 is pretty large because it measures 23" (depth) x 13.5" (width) x 12.75" (height). Due to this, it wouldn't be a good choice if you don't have a lot of free space in your work area.
This trimmer is pretty pricey so it might not be a wise purchase if you have a limited budget. It usually retails for around $300.00. However, this cutter is really well-made, so it's a very good investment.
Finally, this product has a limited one-year warranty.
Final grade: A-. The MBM Kutrimmer 1135 is one of the most durable guillotine paper cutters available so if you're looking for a device that's in it for the long haul, it would be a good choice. It's also ideal if safety is a top concern and if you need something that can cut a large amount of paper in one go. However, just be aware that it has a 13.75-inch cutting length so you won't be able to trim really big sheets of paper. If this sounds like the trimmer for you, be sure to look at it today.
