To use, you need to simply insert one of the supplied plastic sheets into the cutter and press down (Like a stapler) and a perfectly formed plectrum will be cut.  Alternatively, why not use any old plastic cards or similar plastic materials (Upto a thickness of 1mm) to make unusual and unique plectrums.

Once cut, you can keep your plectrums in the supplied plectrum carry keyring pouch.  The keyring pouch is made from PU leather.

I found although easy to use, the plectrum’s can sometimes be cut with sharp edges and requires a little light edge sanding with fine sandpaper to remove the rough edges.

Maybe a file would also be a great addition to the contents.

Conclusion.

I really like how you get to make your own custom plectrum’s with this cutter.  The only real drawback is the rough sharp edges that sometimes happen with this cutter.  As I’ve said above a little file would be a great addition to this kit.

Overall though this is a great cutter and an ideal gift for the musician.
