This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Guillotine cutters pack a lot of punch, but they can also be quite dangerous, as their sharp edges are exposed. Rolling trimmers solve this issue, providing a safe and seamless solution for all your cutting needs. Guarded inside a durable housing, the blades of these will never come near fingers. Meanwhile, each one has useful guides and measurements for creating that perfect line. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 07, 2018:

Rolling trimmers are tools that just about every professional and hobby lover can benefit from. That's why we rounded up a selection of models that are complex and rugged enough for commercial use, as well as those that are more basic and simple for classrooms and crafts projects. Blades that cut with ease and precision were important in each of our selections. We also aimed to add some heavy-duty choices that can tackle thick materials.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
