How to Cut
To begin cutting, slide the safety lock back to expose the blade. When cutting, apply gentle, even pressure to roll the cutter forward, away from the body. When cutting is complete, push the slide forward to safely cover the blade when not in use.
Use a ruler as a guide for straight cuts. Always keep equal pressure on both the cutter and the ruler from beginning to end of each cut. With fingers in a comfortable position, apply gentle downward pressure to the ruler. Continue to move fingers up the ruler with the cut. To ensure accuracy and safety, only cut the distance of one hand-length at a time and reposition as needed.
Always use a Self-Healing Rotary Mat when cutting to protect your work surface and prolong the life of the blade.
