For precision style cutting, the SO300 is the preferred choice since it is easier to cut on a straight line. It is much easier to use the CB100 when reaching across a wide web of paper or film. Either tool can be used when the web is narrow or cutting string or tape. If the film, paper, string or tape is under tension, the best and most efficient product to use is the CB100. All one needs to do is hook the end of this safety cutter on the edge of the film, paper or tape, or engage the string with the blade guard and easily pull across what is being cut. In cases where these items are not under tension, the best approach would be to use the SO300 safety scissor to do the job.
