I fail to see how using a separate blade to cut the tape can be
either quicker than using the built-in device, or better than the
built in device, providing the built-in device is sharp and correctly
aligned. If the blade is not working properly, it can be replaced:
Blades DO go blunt eventually. When they do, you buy a new one and
get perfectly trimmed edges.
A full range of CIR spares is available, and they're ever so easy
