I actually Love it, but I needed to get used to pressing down and keeping my pressing hand out of the way of my cutting hand. I think less leaning would work. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. I honestly wouldn't change anything except making a cutout or carved finger marks in the handle for you to wrap fingers around the handle for more control. I like the fact that it doesn't have markings so I can use my marked rulers and consistency of cuts will be more uniform as the marked rulers don't get nicked up.
