X-ACTO knives can make precise cuts through a variety of different craft materials:

  • All grades of paper

  • Delicate fabrics
  • Sheet metal

  • And more

The original X-ACTO knife has been praised for more than 50 years as the standard for precision. Attaining this level of precision, accuracy and reliability starts with supreme quality craftsmanship. All X-ACTO knives are built with a carbon steel blade for a reliable cut every time. Additionally, they are crafted with a sleek design that fits comfortably in the hand, allowing you to continue making the precision cuts needed to finish the job, no matter how long it takes.

Getting a Clean Straight Cut

Your X-ACTO craft knife is invaluable when making clean cuts in paper, but when you need to make straight cut lines, it is best to have a couple of other tools to work in tandom with your knife. A self-healing mat of course adds the perfect surface allowing you to apply to correct amount of pressure when cutting without harming your work area. Along with a good self-healing mat, a straight-edged stainless steel ruler is essential. The ruler allows you to use the hard edge as a guide without nicking the ruler as you cut along your straight line. You should have a firm grip on our knife, without squeezing too tightly. One hand should be steady on the straight edge, and the other guiding the knife to perform a perfect straight cut every time.
