Using the Dahle 508 A3 paper trimmer

As quoted by Dahle in their press release of this amazing A3 paper trimmer;

Dahle has responded to consumer demand for a high quality, accurate rolling trimmer at an affordable price. Dahle’s Personal Trimmer sets the standards for the cutting industry by featuring an ergonomic design, sturdy metal base and a self-sharpening blade.

Did you know the Dahle 508 trimmer is SELF SHARPENING?

One of the main problems with other brands of paper cutters and trimmers is due to the quality of the actual blade. if the blade is of poor quality no matter how good the machine looks it won’t be long before the trimmer is of no use whatsoever. you can’t use a paper trimmer that won’t cut.

Dahle have designed a blade that keeps a nice clean sharp edge, so with every pass of the blade during a cut it is constantly working on keeping itself nice and sharp. This is also why Dahle trimmers produce the perfect cut every time. Even on the slightest of trims.
