exacto knife 
a short, sharp blade mounted on a pen-like aluminum body, used for crafting and hobbies, such as modelmaking. Before the availability of digital image and text processing tools, preparing camera-ready art for use in printing (literal cut and paste or paste up) depended heavily on the use of knives like the X-Acto for trimming and manipulating slips of paper.
В докомпьютерную эпоху сам принимал участие в подготовке бумажного макета для типографии с помощью ножниц и клея. Такого клёвого ножа у нас не было.
