Hello, this is Ten, the manager.
Today's series is a comparison of similar stationery from 100 yen shops.
These are the two I compared this time!
|Product name||Masking tape cutter (clip type)||Calcut clip type|
|price||110 yen (2 pieces)||
10-15mm type 396 yen
20-25mm type 418 yen
Compare blade materials
The material of the blade is stainless steel for Kokuyo and plastic for Daiso.
Daiso is made of the same material as the main body, so you don't have to worry about it breaking even if you touch it.
KOKUYO has stainless steel teeth, but the specially processed blade is designed to prevent injury. The blade cannot be replaced.
To be honest, Daiso's masking tape cutter is not very sharp...When cutting, you have to grip the main body firmly to prevent the masking tape from slipping off, and don't cut with force, so it's quite difficult.
There are two types of cuts, straight and jagged, but there is no big difference in sharpness between them.
The problem is that if you don't apply enough pressure, it may end up being cut diagonally or crumpled.
It was very convenient to be able to make two types of cuts with one cutter, so I wish the sharpness would be improved.
KOKUYO cuts straight and quickly without using any force, so the sharpness is the best! Even when cutting, the masking tape and cutter fit together without shifting, so the cut ends rarely get bent or crumpled.
Compare compatible tape widths
The compatible tape width is 30mm for Daiso, and 2 sizes for KOKUYO, 10-15mm and 20-25mm.
Daiso is a convenient item for people who use a variety of masking tapes, as it can handle many types of tape. In particular, 26-30mm is a size that cannot be accommodated even with KOKUYO's Calcut clip, so it seems to be useful.
KOKUYO seems to be a bit more time-consuming because you have to prepare and use them according to size, but since the clips are shaped to fit the size, it seems that small adjustments lead to a good fit and sharpness.
masking tape cutter
Personally, I think that ease of cutting and clean cuts are important, so I think I will continue to use KOKUYO's Calcut Clip.
