    this was my first thought. rulers are meant to be used with rotary cutters, so the cutter shouldn't cause chips.

    No, it's Fon's & Porter 60 degree pyramid. Now that I think of it, I've never had this issue before. Maybe it's the ruler and not me!
    Just another reason to not buy Fons & Porter anything. Their stuff was good back when they were starting out, but then they got too big for their britches. Won't buy anything with their name on it.

    I would try to return it. I have had my rulers for at lease 100 years--maybe not quite that long, but do not have any chips in any of them. My problem is the markings are hard to see on my favorite ruler.

    I bought one of those same triangle rulers ...fons and porter...and the very first swipe I took with my cutter, it did the same thing. I thought it was me too. Actually I bought it off a friend and she still had the wrapper on it. She re-ordered another one and it was 5-6 months before she rec'd it!

    I'm always running my cutter into the ruler but it doesn't have any chips. I would try exchanging it if you can.

    I put clear packing tape on all my rulers. It keeps the markings from fading and the edges from chipping. It's a must for most small rulers with points.

    i would tell them. perhaps they would replace it since it's so new. can't hurt to ask.

    Update: Well, I brought it back to Joannes. Told the girl it chipped so easily - and she exchanged it for another one. And I didn't even have the receipt! I used the new one and so far it's good.
