I mentioned to my dad that I could do with one for cutting stencils & he's bought me this one

I had a go at using it yesterday & the blade won't do what I want it to...HELP!

hmmm, me neither. I thought the swivel blade would make cutting swirly bits easier but am not so sure now confused

We bought something similar for DT at school. The deputy head checked how sharp they were.... by swivel the blade with her finger. Ouch! shock
