    Thanks, everyone, for the suggestions.

    The straight-edge with a deckle pattern may be the way to go. I'm also thinking I could take a "blank" straight-edge and grind the exact deckle pattern I have on some vintage photos. That shouldn't be too hard.

    And if that doesn't give me the look I'm after, I'll reconsider the Fiskar shears, or the rotary cutters from the craft stores.

    On mine both the blade and the straight edge are contour cut. After looking at the pictures carefully I think I can safely say, it is identical to the one pictured.

    This includes the splayed out corner mounts, mine is mounted onto a piece of timber.

    One thing I have never noticed before, my moving blade is also in an arc, once again, identical looking as the picture.

    Probably made by the same company and badged to whomever is re-selling, as one did back then and today as well.

    Mick.

    I would prefer the lever/guillotine type, instead of the rotary cutter, as I've heard it gives a cleaner edge. However, I would appreciate any and all comments.

    Gee, I was thinking it was something a mohel uses...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Deckle originate from the german word Deckel wich means cover or lid.

    Seemingly in early papermaking the frame that held the paper pulp on the web was called Deckel too.
    As paper pulp leaked under that frame, the uneven thin edge was called deckle edge.

    From this a on-purpose sharp cut wavy edge got the name deckle edge too.

    I saw a replacement deckle wheel for a paper cutter in my local Staples store. It was on the discontinued items table.

    If you remember seeing photos from back in the 50's, I'm sure you've seen a perfectly cut deckle edge. Nice and sharp, with no fraying or torn edges (at least on a new photo!). I'm guessing that most labs in that era had some type of guillotine cutter to make that deckle edge. But I've searched and searched online, and so far I can't find anything like it.

    I'm still open for suggestions!
    Still have a few boxes of Kodak Azo with deckle edges on the paper. It came that way in the box. The old papers were made that way and it was a decorative selling point in some places.
