Default ProCision Trimmer

I have 5 paper trimmers and not particularly happy with any of them. I read somewhere about the new Fiskars ProCision trimmer and can't remember where. I have seen it advertised on sale and also at my local craft store.
Does anyone own it and have an opinion or review to share? TIA

Hi babe54,

I am looking for people's opinions on this cutter as well. Scrapbook.com has a special until tomorrow (Friday Sept 21) night. $50 off regular retail of $119.00. I have many trimmers, but like you, I have issues with all of them. I did find two reviews on line.
Newest “bladerunner” on the block » Judy Nolan
and
The Gentleman Crafter: Quick Post!

Does anyone here have one of these and be willing to share their opinion?

Hi Stampinspy,
It was The Gentleman Crafter. Joann's is carrying the trimmer but you cannot use a coupon. I hope there are more replies. I am tired of buying trimmers and this one would be in my budget.
Thanks for the reply.

I'm also curious about the ProCision trimmer. Are there any mat-cutting crafters out there? I'd so love to learn how to mat and frame some of my "art"- Currently looking at a Logan mat cutter vs. a ProCision trimmer.

Stampinspy, I just went to scrapbook.com and they don't have any in and no preorders, just click to be notified when this item is available. No discount. OH well, missed out again.

I saw a video demo of this cutter yesterday on the Scrap Mart site I think. It looks like a great cutter but my question is: Right now I have the basic Fiskars that SU used to sell. It also has a scoring blade on it. If I get this Procision, I guess I'll have to haul out my Scor Buddy after I cut cardstock for a card and is this going to be a bother? Is it worth it to upgrade to a better cutter if all I really do is cut single sheets of cardstock? I am not entirely happy with my cutter - even with a new blade it causes fuzz on the cut line of the thicker cardstock like Gina K and PTI. And you can't shave off very small increments. But it basically does the job.

I just got the email from scrappal about this trimmer and watched the video. it looks really good. Right now I have a regualar fiskers that I like and a carl cutter since I cut lots of chipboard and magnets. It would be a dream if this fiskars could cut all of that. Keeping 2 cutters and a scorpal on my workspace takes up too much room.

I had the making memories trimmer, but I did not like it at all, so it would be really interesting if someone could compare the two of them.

I was curious about this trimmer so did a Goggle search. It doesn't look like it is available yet but before you buy do your research. One place showed it as reg price $116 but ther price was going to be $42! Another place had set their price as $137.

I did watch the video and it seemed to be a sturdy trimmer with the convince of folding up so could be stored in a smaller space or taken to workshops. When unfolded it looked to be able to accommodate a 12 x 12 piece of paper. Nice that the blade will not have to be replaced. (Of course, you need to watch what you cut.)

It's quite expensive compared to all their other trimmers. Would like to see one and try it out. What I've read says it cuts light-weight chipboard. So you would still need something else for anything heavier.

I'm looking into getting a new trimmer too. I checked out the vids for the Procision trimmer and I'm wondering about the statement of never having to change the blade. I'm hooked on GinaK's 120 lb CS, so I go though blades quite often it seems.

For the previous posters, did you purchase and do you like?

My first thought was the guillotine type trimmer. But I'm not sure of that either. Thoughts?

I can't speak to the Procision, because I don't have it. I still have the old SU trimmer and I do go through blades a lot. I just keep spares handy.

But I would say this: I ordered the new SU trimmer, it didn't work for me. That's a long story, but short version is there was nothing wrong with it, I just have a particular lighting problem in my studio and the swing arm lamp above the trimmer reflected like a mirror in the trimmer platform. I ended up returning it and sort of reluctantly getting the guillotine trimmer. So now I have both kinds and I have to say I am glad I do. Each is good for different things and I use them both.

If you want to bevel Your cuts such as the framed area around your piece of art, then the procision will not work for you. I have a mat cutter and it has 2 blades. One for strait cuts and one for beveled. I don't recall what brand I have. I'm not at home right now, but I can look into it later for you if you want.

I'm saving up for a genesis, but I am seriously considering getting this instead. It would certainly be more affordable for me. Hope more reviews come out on this soon.

I had the Genesis 18" with the light. LOVED it, but had to sell due to space constraints in my new digs.

ordered the Fiskars procision and when it comes I will try it out and let you know how it compares to my beloved Genesis....

I'm looking forward to what you have to say. It will be nice hearing from someone who can compare this with a genesis.

I'm back on the fence, again. I was prepared to try the Cutterpillar Pro when my DH said why don't you just buy the Genesis. Then I thought well maybe I'll try the Procision since Joanns sells it. DH says again just buy the Genesis. That just put me back at square one all over again. For some reason I'm hesitant about it. He goes on to list all the reasons I should and I seem to list why I should not. I keep thinking shouldn't I buy something that cuts more than one piece. And something that can also cut chipboard.
In the meantime I'm stuck with 5 cutters that can't cut straight.
I wish he had just kept his mouth shut

Great that he has an opinion!

Can you use a coupon at J's?

It is good that he has an opinion, but not when it comes to certain things. I guess you could say he is the opposite of most husbands. I can walk into the craft store with him and say I want to spend $25. He'll say buy this and that. By the time I leave I have $75 worth of stuff. Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining about that as most people would love that. But, when you have so much stuff you're overwhelmed by it that's the last thing I need. By now I probably would have a cutter that I would be happy with. I still can't decide.
You can no longer use your coupons on dies or what they consider paper crafting machines.

Hello all! I have used the Genesis at a local stamp store and loved it. It cuts smoothly and with ease. I really looked into buying one back when they were in a big manufacturing backlog i decided about two months ago to try the Fiskars Procision trimmer. I used a coupon at Joann's, so the trimmer cost me about $72.00. Got it home and immediately fell in love with it. Unlike the Genesis, that has to stay in one spot because of it's size, weight and the cutting head, the Procision sits folded on a shelf above my head and as I need it I pull it down and use it on my table. Jennifer McGuire just had a blog post yesterday about her review. Check it out here...

Have you tried cutting grungeboard or chipboard with it?
I bought one around Christmas time, but returned it. It wouldn't even cut through 2 pieces of SU CS, let alone chipboard; but in the videos I have watched it works really well. So I am wondering if the one I bought was faulty.

Thanks for the info!

Stacey

my procision trimmer came today. comparison with Genesis 18th with edgelight

Procision pros:

smaller footprint and folds!
cuts more than one piece of cardstock at a time (I cut 3 -- actually I have no cardstock at the moment, but found an old thing I made with 3 pieces glued together)
cuts very cleanly
has a thing you press that holds the paper in place
considerably cheaper than the genesis (I paid $89 with free shipping) on amazon

Genesis: pros

the edgelight is really nice for cutting stripes or when you need to cut near a particular spot on cardstock and don't feel like measuring

the cut for a single piece is probably slightly sharper. not sure

not plastic, so I'm guessing it will last longer (not sure). mine was in perfect condition after many years.

So-- I think that the procision is a reasonable alternative to the genesis. I need to play with it much more to have a final opinion but so far a 2 thumbs up.

JoanB thanks for your review. I've always wanted a good trimmer like the Genesis however I can't seem to get over the price and I usually crop outside my home and so I need something portable.

I'm going to give the procision a try. Thanks again for your review!

Thanks for the review! I've always wanted a genesis and I'm sure they are worth every penny, just something I can't afford at this time. I really like the portability of the Procision so I think I'll go ahead and order it.

I ordered the Procision from Amazon and I got it for a pretty good price. I have a question for those of you who have one. When you cut something, does it sound like the blade is scraping a bit? Most of the cuts are clean, but I cut some heavyweight Gina K cardstock, just one piece, and the edge was a little ragged. I also cut 3 pieces of lighter weight and got the same result. Should I be worried? I wanted to buy it locally so if I had issues I could return it, but no one carried it. Shipping back to Amazon will be expensive.

I have done that, with the paper at the bottom and at the top, pulling the blade towards me and pushing it away. Same result. I took some photos of the paper and have contacted Fiskars. It's not that the edge is torn up, like it can be with the small single blade trimmers, but the edge is just...ragged, not as smooth as I would expect from a trimmer with a price tag like this one. The blade sounds like it's rubbing, but only in certain spots and the metal strip has some uneven spots in it, too. Maybe I just got a lemon.

Apparently it's not just me. I found a video from The Gentleman Crafter and he has the same issues, but his works better when he pulls the blade down rather than pushing it up. I did get slightly better results, but I'm still not pleased about it.

Here's the link to his video:

The grinding is from the blade sharpening itself each time you use it. It rubs along a metal edge just like using a sharpening steel for knives. All of my cuts have been clean, but I only cut downward since pushing up on the blade feels awkward to me. I used Gina K Base weight white and some Stampin Up cardstock the other day with no problem.

I couldn't help myself for the price I got and purchased one also. So far I haven't had a problem cutting up or down. I have some Gina K and Papertrey Ink paper that I have not used. I will give those a try tomorrow and see what happens.

Maybe your blade needs to be sharpened. I know it is supposed to be self sharpening and not replaced. Have you tried running the blade up and down without paper so the 2 metal ares make contact? There might be a rough area on the blade. This is a suggestion for other self sharpening blades. I don't have this cutter and this is only a suggestion.

Hope you get a response from Fiskars that corrects your problem.

You should not have ragged edges and not have to "pull" or "push" one way to get a clean cut. I had the ragged edge issue, contacted Fiskars, took a pic of my cutter and emailed it to them. I had a new cutter on my doorstep in a couple of weeks. The blade is self sharpening and I don't think mine makes any unusual noise. Contact Fiskars about that too.

I think you misunderstood my post. I do not get ragged edges, they are all clean. I can cut by pushing (tested today since others stated issues) and pulling. I just prefer pulling since I don't like the feel of pushing in general on anything. Mine does not make any unusual noises. The motion is smooth, but does have a specific "feel" to it created from the honing of the blade which is common among any self sharpening item. I did describe it as a grinding. Perhaps this is what caused the confusion.

I didn't see this posted: I noticed that HL had the ProCision in stock last week - 40% coupon does apply. It's regularly $120; that makes it in the $72 neighborhood before your local tax.

I absolutely agree - it should cut cleanly either way. I emailed them, too, and they asked me to send a photo, which I did, along with a closeup of the metal bar and a piece of card stock with the raggedy edge. They said they would send a new trimmer - their customer service is wonderful!
