Normally a sharp lever arm (cutting blade) with a proper holder, pivoting on the base, where one can lift up and then push down with ease to slice through the stack of paper. Paper is place on top of the flat surface of the sturdy metal base, aligned and then cut. Just below the cutting blade, attached to the metal base, is the other piece of metal that provide the shearing action of cutting the paper. There are no sharp edges.
On the metal base itself, usually rectangular, are alignment grid for precision positioning, commonly using a dual scale system of metric and imperial measurements, to assist with measuring and accurate cuts. In some cases, the stack of paper is held down by a so called Compressor bar before the actual cutting action. There is also a paper guide bar, usually magnetic, for use with more accurate placement of the paper. The heavy metal base is usually attached with rubber studs to provide non-slip operation.
