I Made A Thing
Tried out one of those Slice blades to make square/rectangular holes in some upcoming punch card-themed works. Not exactly the miracle tool I thought it was; when I first saw this thing, it looked like its point was a needle, and you could hold and use it like a pencil, effectively cutting (or at least scoring) anything you drew. Turns out it is simply a blade, although smaller and made from ceramic. The result of this is that the blade doesn't really bend, it never dulls, and cuts fairly deep but not so deep it gets stuck. Still, it didn't make particularly clean cuts in either the notebook page or the cardstock of the tag.
