Precision Cutter by Karim Rashid
Some people have complained it doesn't cut well, but I don't know if they are using it correctly? If you zoom in on the photo, you will see the cutting tip is VERY small. You have to be holding it at the correct angle (not too much straight up and down, more tilted back) Also, you still need to use a solid pressure. If you don't do any pushing, it won't cut.
I found it cuts great, even curves and small details. I bought several for my elementary classroom, because now my students (3rd/4th graders) can use them without the danger of an exacto blade cutting a finger off.
True, it's no exacto or box cutter, but I think the key draw for this is the safe for skin tip, and the ceramic blade that won't get dull.

Not as sharp as I thought
I thought the tip was a blade but it's actually sharp plastic. It cuts only if I use it in certain angle. Because of that I can't really cut curves and shapes easily. Also, because it's a plastic, it can't really cut unless the paper is really thin.

I use this little cutter to help cut out things for my scrapbooking. I found that it works quite good for the letters and shapes that I am cutting. I haven't tried anything really intricate but I like it for my projects. Feels good in my hand but maybe the blade could be a little bit sharper.

Scores and tears paper, but does not cut
I bought this for intricate paper cutting (snowflakes, etc.) and was very dissappointed in the performance. It does not cut through my paper. At best, it scores the design into the paper, and at worst, it tears it.
