StevenG17........a 12" steel rule, an older fashioned Stanley knife and a kitchen Teflon cutting board + a sharp HB pencil


If you are right-handed, apply pressure via thumb & fingers of the left hand  over the ruler & slowly score the first pencil line & check [left-handed just reverse]


When confirmed as OK continue slowly cutting until the cut is made :-))


You can apply more pressure with the larger body of the old style Stanley knife, over the smaller body and so less wobble or possibility of snapping the segmented blade
