  1. It’s a paper cutter – we used to call it the guillotine. The loop at the top is the handle by which you lifted the blade. You line the paper up and bring the bar with its blade down to cut the paper. Every school copy room and art room had one.
    Oh – and you never put your finger anywhere near the blade unless you didn’t need it any more!!
