Maybe your scissors suck because mine work perfectly. They are a big set that I scooped from my gf, for sewing or something. Key is to hold it straight as possible and cut with one cut.

KwikCut SS100 Stainless Steel Tube Cutter - Black

Found the same ones at Rona, in the Plumbing section for 7.99$. Works great, clean cuts every time.

Sharp utility knife, blade fully extended, with a low-pressure, sawing motion. Flex the tube slightly to expand the cut and let the knife do the cutting.

Quality garden scissors work better then dedicated tube cutter.

I've always used a set of pruning shears. When my wife & I bought our house, we must have got a half dozen pairs as house warming gifts. Clearly, our friends are inspired gift givers.

Hrm never thought of using pruning shears...

I've been using a pair of tin snips though they aren't quite big enough so I don't get a totally perfect cut. Compressions hide it though

I use wire cutters because i seem to always have them laying around and they like to cut through a lot of different types of materials.
