Paper cuts hurt!  That is because paper can indeed slice through a lot of softer materials.  Don't believe me?  Just watch this video. Johnnyq90 demostrates how he makes a 3 layer paper disc to fit his Dremel drill. Then proceeds to cut through cardboard, acrylic, plastic and wood!

Sigh. I actually bought replacement cutting wheels for my Dremel. I should just use those for metal cutting and save some money and use paper instead for the soft materials, eh?

Update :  A reader's brother, a retired chemical engineer explains that "the glue makes it much stiffer. And good paper like this has a fair amount of titanium dioxide in it to make it bright white. TiO2 is very abrasive. And it is a lot like getting a paper cut." Figures!
