Paper cutter

What do you use for a paper cutter? I have an old Fiskars one like this one, but the markings are getting quite scratched up with all the use it's received lately, and I think a new one is in order (Especially seeing as I got a coupon for an extra 25% off any purchase Saturday morning when I was at Michael's yesterday).

My local Michael's has the cutter to the right in stock, which looks pretty decent. And, since all Fiskars products are 30% off this week, combined with the 25% coupon, it'd be pretty close to 50% off.
Thoughts? Suggestions?

I have an Exacto Guillotine one that I use most often, and a Fiskars rotary one. I prefer the chopper one, it doesn't take as much pressure as I find the rotary one does.

A Fiskars paper cutter should be more than sufficient for use in the craft cave. I would also recommend a guillotine-style cutter, like Emily said.

This is my all time favourite trimmer (fiskars). Morgan, Kudra, Sam and I think quite a few other calgary ladies have it as well and love it.

I personally do not like the guillotine style cutter/trimmers. I have had one before and I do not like how it cuts. I also find the paper has more of a chance to shift then this one. It's pricey, but well worth it.
