How Much Pressure?

How much pressure should you use when using your X-ACTO knife? Truth is, it’s probably less than you think. Too much pressure can break or chip the blade. If your blade is nice and sharp, you just need the right amount of steady pressure from your fingertip to go through your paper and nothing more. Practice a light steady touch to achieve the right amount of pressure.
