Default Am I the only one who did not know abt this?

I just stumbled across this thing which apparently seems to have launched in Jan....and I just never saw it from under my rock...

Do you all know there is a deckle tonic cutter??

In searching here as it happens @Alice in Md was asking for one last fall. I don't if she saw it...

https://www.tonic-studios.com/products/tim-holtz-deckle-torn-edge-trimmer-3561e

I am bemused by this. I still have my deckle metal ruler from years ago. That wanted me to spritz with water to get a good edge....

Is deckle still so popular? I don't feel like I see a lot of it in the gallery. I like it for some things and I do have 1 rectangle nesting die set (bc I stink with the ruler but I am too stubborn to give up) I feel like I am most likely to see with Christmas cards/Vintage looks?

It looks like a small edge-I think my dies cut a more dramatic one.

What do you guys think? (I am not thinking about getting one)

Yes, I remember when it came out, and I asked the same thing.  Are deckle edges really that popular?  I think it's outdated, but I guess some people find it useful.  I'm not sure how well it's selling, though.

ETA:  I think I still have my deckle-edged scissors, LOL!

I'm starting to see deckle layer dies and I am drawn to them! Everything old is new again -  still hoping eyelets make a comeback

I actually got mine a few days ago. I like using a deckle edge, especially on inserts, so was keen on this when I first saw it. It works fine, it's a sort of cross between a deckle edge and a torn edge. I do have a rotary cutter with interchangeable blades that I'd use for it, but it takes quite a bit of pressure to get good clean cuts, and I damaged my shoulder/ got a trapped nerve in my neck last time I did a lot with it, so this was a no brainer.

BTW, I understand it works on Yupo as well -  haven't tried that yet.  Although the deckle is not as intense as the die versions, the cutting is very easy. I often get straight cut layers placed not perfectly with varying margins, and I'm hoping the deckle will be more forgiving to the eye.

Eyelets will be popular again just as soon as I find a new home for mine!

I still have a pair of deckle scissors. They’re the only set of decorative scissors that I kept. I can’t even tell you why. I also have a small collection of eyelets... and brads... and staples - both colored regular staples and ones for the Fastenater. If it was a popular embellishment 10+ years ago, I probably have it or just recently donated it.

I like the deckle look on vintage-y designs and on some layers, just to change it up.  This cutter tempts me as the scissors method takes longer.

I saw the paper cutter. I'm not going to invest in it since I already have a set of deckle edge rulers by Fiskars, and deckle scissors that are 20 yrs old.

Ok well not surprising. I miss a lot under my rock. lol

Now that you mention it, I think I still have a whole set of various finish scissors. LOL. 

I still have a few eyelets and just got some brads which I much prefer. Start using them Lydia! If you do, people will follow!

I must be under the rock with you, wavejumper, as I never heard of or saw this item, either. I have seen the dies and contemplated buying them, but I still have a deckle-edge ruler so I probably don't need them. I regret giving away the scissors...

I don't think it hit the U.S. market until around the 1st of November, but Tim Holtz was previewing it last winter.

Simon Hurley did a pretty in depth review of it this morning. Although it's interesting, it doesn't really fit my style of crafting. Plus, I still have the old SU deckle edge ruler that I rarely take out anymore. (That baby was sharp!)

I had to look, out of curiosity. I still have some deckle scissors from ages ago, and I remember those rulers some of you have mentioned. I will say that the edge produced by this trimmer does actually look much more like a subtle, "authentic" deckle edge, as opposed to the effect of the various scissors, etc. I really like the way it looks, oddly enough (since deckle edges haven't even crossed my mind in a long time)!
If I had unlimited spending ability, space, and was in a shabby chic mood, I'd probably want it.

Looks like it is just being released now? 

Looking at that video, I don't like that the first inch is not the same as the rest of the cut. I think it is very noticeable. Otherwise it is a nice subtle edge.

Then just butt the cardstock against the lower edge; I do that half the time anyway.  Had Simon not drawn your attention to it, I doubt you would ever notice.

When Tim Holtz originally demo'ed the trimmer, I did not like that it was not a true torn edge look as you would get with torn watercolor paper, but I fell for it this month.  The convenience - and it is an ideal edge for all the watercolor paper I use now - and the ability to get quick and correct perpendicular cuts.  The discounted trimmer price is about the equivalent of a pricey nesting die set; so if you can find the space, go for it.

It's amusing to me that I saw this thread today!

My stamping friend gifted me with the two sets of Spellbinders deckle rectangle dies several weeks ago and I used one of them this past Sunday.  I cut a label for the envelope that I sent to my son for his upcoming birthday.

I like the deckle edge look, and will probably start using those dies more often.

I still use my eyelets from time to time. Once I got the Cropadile, years ago, it was so easy to use them that I just hung on to my eyelets.

I recently got a nested deckle edged rectangle set by Spellbinders on sale and plan to use it a lot. It's a fairly subtle edge, but gives that little bit of interest. I like to ink my edges, and the deckle gives a vintage look.
I still have my old deckle edged scissors by Creative Memories too...haha! So it looks like I'm all deckled-out and ready to roll.

I have a Cropadile, too! Maybe we should declare the first week of December as Eyelet Week?!

Absolutely!! After all, there's a day/week for almost every thing else, right? Get that Cropadile dusted off and ready.

Yes, that video was for Tim Holtz new deckle trimmer which was released two weeks ago.

I admit it when I first saw that trimmer I laughed so hard. I am easily amused by a lot of releases in our market. I own a lot of them too, lol.

I was on one of my artist forums. They were going crazy about the announcement. I guess a lot of professional artists like a nice deckle frame around their creations. They want to add a deckle edge on their watercolor paper, canvas, etc.... They want to add a deckle edge around their frames- matboard, etc...

Of course it is impossible to do that with those type of substrates using the current tools on the market. I stopped laughing and felt quite stupid after I read why those artists wanted that trimmer more than anything else in the world! I do think it will be a niche market. I hope it does cut those materials. If it does not there are going to be a niche that is really disappointed.

I adore eyelets. I bought a lot of eyelets this year. Eyelets will never go out of style for me. I keep my deco scissors next to me on my desk. I own thirty pairs and use them all the time.

Don't feel stupid. That would have never had occurred to me either. 

I don't think there is a full size (12 inch) deckle trimmer right? So the artists will be pretty limited in the sizes they can do it with. 

I have to say 99% of my eyelets I got for the purpose of running ribbon thru them. I am a brad kid.
