I love Kory's post, because it seems so true, I see this topic on the forums a lot. I had the Cutterpede, which I love, but occasionally doesn't cut completely straight. It is rotary, and does offer decorative blade wheels. Then after a long search I decided on the Making Memories Rotary, but as someone else said, it's almost too big to pack for a crop. Plus you can't just line it up with the edge on the cutter, you have to use the printed lines, which means sometimes it's not a perfect cut. And you can't tell the EXACT place it's going to cut. So now I'm consider a 12x12 fiskars with the wire.
