Can anyone recommend a paper cutter/guillotine for trimming cards

When I make cards I often cover the card front with paper and then trim the edges. My paper cutter has broken and I am looking for a new one - can anyone recommend one? I only need to cut straight lines, don't need one for fancy edges. Thanks.

    Sorry, I have a large Fiskars cutter that I use to cut down A3 card but I rarely use a paper trimmer, I much prefer using a scalpel and metal ruler....

    I have a small Fiskars paper trimmer. I think it was about £15. It is excellent. It wouldn't be suitable for heavy use, but if you just need to trim single sheets of paper/card it's fine.

    I've heard loads of good reports about the Fiskar's trimmers. Sometimes you can get a combined guillotine/rotary cutter at Lidl or Aldi for @£15.

    I've had an Avery compact one for donkey's years & wouldn't be without it. A really excellent piece of kit.
    The bigger the bargain, the better I feel.

    I should mention that there's only one of me, don't confuse me with others of the same name.
