I have one of the old rotary blade Fiskar's cutters. It works well but it is huge and impossible to take out of the house for gatherings elsewhere. I then tried one of the small Fiskar's with the little square, orange blade. That thing does not cut a straight line. I tried a friend's Cutterpede and liked it. It is portable and cuts a straight line. Mine is a little bowed in the middle and flexes a bit so sometimes I have to cut more than once as the bowed section doesn't cut the first time. My friend's doesn't do that so I should have exchanged mine when I first bought it. It is very reasonably priced - under $20 at Hobby Lobby and of course I used a 40% off coupon! If you go to crafting events outside your home, be sure to consider portability. I also recommend that you buy a brand that you can readily buy replacement blades and cutting pad strips. Good luck. There are so many to choose from!
