I think it's:

"Cut right to the chase", or simply "Cut to the chase": get to the point without wasting time.

Because the picture is:

Cut. Right [to]. Chess.

    $\begingroup$ @Bass It might have come from here. Blame the user "Clker-Free-Vector-Images" on that site. Their icon is a fish. I don't think fish know how to play chess. $\endgroup$ – Engineer Toast Dec 22 '17 at 21:20

Possibly:

Split down the middle, meaning divide into equal parts.

Explanation:

Scissors are used to cut/divide/split things. The arrow is pointing at the middle of the chess board, which if cut would divide it into two equal halves.

Cut across the board, meaning cuts (e.g. in pay) across all levels of an organisation
