I just went downstairs to grab a few of my crafting supplies, and I started to laugh at all of the Fiskars tools that I have sitting on my craft table. It makes me laugh when I see how much of their products that I have and use.
My favorite is the old standby paper trimmer. I also have the rotary trimmer with all the cool shape blades, but my favorite, and the one that I reach for time and time again is their simple trimmer. I like that I can see where the blade hits the paper so that I can slice out just what I need for my project.
My second favorite tool is the Titanium Nitride Mighty Snip. I use it to snip one of the spokes on the roll of adhesive as I pop it into my ATG gun. It really has made loading the gun a simple process ( if I could just remember each time which direction the take up reel needs to go! Ugh!).
My third, or perhaps Very first tool would be the 12 x 18 self healing mat. It's always right there, beneath my project, protecting my table top. I don't use it to cut on, I usually throw a glass mat on top of it when I'm using an exacto, but I do use it for gluing and painting and everything else that gets dirty. I've found that it comes as clean as I need it to when I'm finished, and it does a fantastic job protecting my table top.
