I just bought a printer (Canon Pro-10) and now need a paper cutter. I'm thinking of getting the Dahle 550, which has great reviews. It will be used not too often (maybe couple times a week), and I will likely only be cutting 1 sheet at a time. Currently, it's about $130. My wife thinks this is way too expensive for a paper cutter. She says a pair of scissors is plenty sufficient. Any suggestions on how I can convince her otherwise? =P She says that if 10 people reply saying that using scissors is absurd before 1 person comments that scissors is sufficient, then she'll let me get the paper cutter. Also, are there any cheaper ones that are good? It needs to be able to cut at least 13" paper. I would rather spend $130 on a good one that'll last forever than to have to keep buying cheap ones.
