Kutsuwa Hi Line 30cm Paper Cutting Ruler Zoom Kutsuwa Hi Line 30cm Paper Cutting Ruler

A lovely quality 30cm aluminium ruler that can also neatly 'cut' paper by tearing it along a crisp edge - takes seconds, and gives a neater edge than other rulers!

These are a bit difficult to sell online, because they have a special trick that's not easy to explain; but we knew we wanted them when we saw them demonstrated. Allow us to try to explain...

Firstly, it's a really nice ruler. Aluminium, with a choice of a black or silver coating, that gives it a nicely simple and professional look. If that was all, it would be a very nice ruler, and well worth having just for that, but there's more.

The lower edge, opposite the measuring scale, is cut diagonally, so it meets the paper with a sharper edge than most rulers. This means it's perfectly suited for that trick of tearing paper along the edge. It's a common enough thing to do, and can work well for people who have the knack. For the rest of us, though, the success rate can be a bit lower. This ruler makes it work much better, much more reliably, and gives a cleaner edge.

Hold the ruler down firmly along the line you want to cut, pull the paper up and slightly back, following the arrow marked on the ruler, and you have a fairly tidy 'cut'. It's not quite as neat as you'd get by cutting with a craft knife, or with scissors (if you're careful!), but it takes seconds, and looks much neater than tearing by any other method.

We should also admit that it's quite fun to do. We may have ended up getting quite competitive, all trying to get the quickest and neatest cut. Meetings may have taken a bit longer than they should, and ended with a lot of small pieces of paper scattered around. We may have blamed Herbie, the Cult Pens spaniel, for the mess.

30cm ruler with special cutting edge and guide markings. Because of the strong material and angled edge, extra care should be taken with this ruler, especially if it's to be handled by children - best kept away from younger children.

(No spaniels were harmed in the testing of this product, except, perhaps, by reputation.)
