The cutting stick certainly should not be redwood or any soft wood. They
generally were a hard maple which serves well, but doesn't dent as
easily as a soft wood. Now most paper cutters are built to use a thin
plastic strip which can be easily removed and replaced.
If there is a dent in the stick, it is time to replace it. I generally
make my own sticks, but most printing supply houses and some paper
companies can provide one to suit your cutter.
