Precision Cutter by Karim Rashid
Best Scratchboard Tool in My Arsenal
I am an avid scratchboard artist, and this has quickly become my favorite tool. Cuts clean and thin, extra sharp, and the ball tip means I can have all my needed supplies safely in my purse or pockets! I bought it as an experiment, and it paid off big time. I've never used it to cut paper, but for precision lines and ease of motion, it's fantastic! Here's a scratchboard of Matthew McCounaghey I did with just this tool and a prepared scratchboard.

This is actually my second time purchasing this product. Don't worryâ¿¿it didn't break or wear out or anything. I lost it and decided I didn't want to live without it.
It's convenient, useful, cute, and safer to have lying around than an exacto knife when you just need to cut paper. The cap is great and stays on better than my exacto knife's cap, too, for added safety.
I use it for craft projects, but it's also perfect for saving recipes or workouts from magazines before you recycle them, or for "clipping" coupons. Try it, I think you'll be pleased.

Great design, poor function
I got excited seeing this cutter blade thinking it could help me with my card making this year. However, the blade is quite dull and does not cut as straight, or as smoothly as a regular razor blade. It cannot cut "intricate shapes" as the description claims. The edges come out fuzzy and not smooth, so it looks like I tore it by hand rather than cut. I also used it to cut out a star and a small Christmas tree, but ended up using conventional scissors at the end because the edges were not straight. It's hard to hold because it's so thin and rolls around on my fingers. DO NOT RECOMMEND for true arts and crafts enthusiasts.

Scores and tears paper, but does not cut
I bought this for intricate paper cutting (snowflakes, etc.) and was very dissappointed in the performance. It does not cut through my paper. At best, it scores the design into the paper, and at worst, it tears it.
