One of my jobs while interning at SOM SF was cutting and folding a number of booklets going out for client presentations. During this time I became close friends with the straight edge, and it was then that I discovered the Pacific Arc.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Rolls Royce of straight edges: I've never encountered an straight edge with such heft. Cutting with this is a dream since it weighs enough that it wont slip around on your paper when you're applying a lot of pressure to the xacto. After SOM I tried to find one in Providence but there were none to be found-- not even online. Imagine my joy, then, when I found one at the Cambridge Utrecht!
