I recently saw an ad for the Gyro-Cut, a paper cutting tool designed for collaging, scrap booking, anything where you’re cutting out a lot of complex, irregular shapes. I decided to buy one.
Meh. It’s not terrible, and you definitely get better with time, but I was not all that impressed with it.
My reactions comport with a number of YouTube reviews, including this one. At the end of the day, I don’t cut out that many paper shapes that I can’t handle with small paper scissors. But your mileage may vary.
