"It's a reasonable product but not quite as good as I expected.
I found the cutting blade already inserted, whilst it did cut, failed to cut cleanly and a second and third pass had to be made, leaving a ragged edge, thus the blade needed to be replaced immediately. It cuts 80gsm paper well enough and will just about cope with card up to 160gsm., over that and the length of blade exposed, even when pressing quite hard (or making multiple passes), is just not sufficient to cut cleanly which left me needing to use a scalpel to cut through the remainder of the thickness.
Would I recommend it? Overall I suppose yes, if you're planning on primarily cutting paper, but for cardstock or thicker card, then I'd say buy with caution."

"This EK circle pro is fantastic. I watched it being used on C & C It looked easy. I have to say it is. The best circle cutter on the market and I have tried a few. I think I will be using this a lot so will stack up on spare blades. I have an X Cut glass mat and an old glass shelf from a fridge. As long as the surface is smooth glass you cannot go wrong. Love it."

"Easy to use, perfect circle every time. Quality in design and build. This was bought for my mother (80 years young) who took to it straight away. She's tried many "easy" circle cutters all without success until this one. It is just brilliant!"

"Where has this been all of my life I have struggled cutting circles with scissors but always found that they were shall we say not quite circular but more oval. I now have perfect circles and have had to hide it when my daughters call around as they have taken a liking to it. Just hope it comes back in stock for Christmas as that is what they will be getting to keep mine safe lol."

"This is an amazing piece of equipment. No crafter should be without tool. It makes cutting out circles easy and you can make some great shaped cards. It is a pleasure to use and your work looks professional every time. Would highly recommend this to anyone who makes handmade cards. Thank you create and craft for bringing this tool to us crafters."

Best Circle Cutter Ever
from Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, UK
onJuly 28, 2013
"I've tried a number of circle cutters which claim to be "easy to use" but have never been able to use any of them properly. I ordered this one after watching the demos and thought I'd need a bit of practice before I would be able to use it, but no - I cut a perfect circle first time! I dont have a great deal of strength but you really dont need any to use this cutter which is another bonus. My scrapbook pages can now have perfect Olympic Rings and my cards can have circular mats and layers of any size. Anyone wondering about this cutter, I'd say go for it. I'm happy I did."
