I’m often asked about the differences between the various Klic-N-Kut die cutters and between the software packages we support. So I created a few comparison charts that show important features.

Klic-N-Kut Comparisons

The first comparison is for all KNKs currently sold new. If you would like to see additional information, along with available accessories, please use this link.

I also have a table comparing all models, including our discontinued ones. This table is useful for those buying a used KNK or considering an upgrade. Please contact me at with your questions regarding the differences or if you need more information.
