1950s Photo Card Stock Paper Cutter Small Size Sharp Blade Crafting
The perfect size vintage paper, card stock, or photo cutter or trimmer that won't take up a ton of space in your work area. This 1950s paper cutter measures 10 1/2" in total length and can easily fit in a drawer when not in use. We have one similar to this a little older that we take out a few times a year and it is quite handy. The blade on this is sharp. We have included a video for you to view in our photo gallery.
The handle is the original nice wood with red paint. Across the top of the metal cutting surface is an attached ruler for you to slide your piece under and measure or get a straight cut. The maximum length across is 6". The video shows our model using it first with a piece of white computer paper which is triple folded and then with our heavy duty business card. It easily cuts through them both. The size is perfect and compact.
Any white spots you see on the black surface is remnants of our paper towels. The ruler is discolored from age but the markings can still easily be read. Other than that it is Very Good usable estate condition. We did not clean up the blade as we wanted you to see it as we found it, but you can get the blade cleaner with some fine steel wool if you choose to do so. Most of these had decals on the body for the maker and in this case no name or decal is seen (most likely worn off). Many of these small cutters were made by the big photo companies such as Zeiss as accessories for photographers back when we used develop our own film.
