Diagonal wire cutters work the best. I buy Craftsman because of the lifetime replacement warranty but I really don't know if those are sold internationally. If not, I'm sure another manufacturer has a comparable warranty or a real decent one.

Also - A Guitool or RoadieRench is a hand thing to have but the built-in string-cutter gets dull very quickly which tends to be more difficult in cutting the lighter strings at that point.
