An Unanswered Letter to X-Acto

Dear X-Acto,

Your blades rule! But somehow I can’t help but think you’ve got an unfair competitive market advantage. I mean, how many other blade makers out there also make glue? If I make a mistake, chances are I’ll be reaching for the trusty bottle of Elmer’s!

The other day though I tore the sole of the bottom of my shoe and used Gorilla Glue to fix it. I don’t think in this case Elmer’s glue would have cut it.

I was looking over your website and have a new found need for your woodcarving set. I don’t do any woodcarving, but when I look at a set of knives like that I suddenly imagine I could! I think I’ll be picking up a set since they are so damn cool. I do want to get into linoleum block printing, and am pretty sure these would rock for that!

Anyway, I just want to thank you for making a great product, so…
