Well, you don’t seem to be sure. As we all know most paper is made of wood pulp, which implies that sharpened paper would be like sharpened wood. But, again the question is what type of wood can be sliced by a paper blade? Is it Balsa as it appears to be enough weak? This could change the whole rock-paper-scissors equation if it can cut through wood.

All of us are familiar with the fact that paper has some remarkable capabilities if it is folded. However, is the edge of a single sheet capable of working like a saw on a rotary motor?

We are able enough to create anything out of anything, but it does not imply that it is going to work accurately. It does not appear that paper is something that would take well to high RPMs. In addition to being pliable, it is also brittle.
