Fiskars makes a variety of bladed implements, some for outdoor use and many for indoor crafting purposes. The paper cutters that Fiskars makes also come with removable and replaceable blades for when the one you are using goes dull. If you need to change the blade on your sliding or rotary paper cutter, it is a relatively quick and simple process. Depending on the type of paper cutter you are using, the process varies slightly.

    Rotary Paper Cutter

    Slide the carriage button to the "open" position. Open the carriage.
