This cutter was recommended by a friend as a great beginners cutter.

There are several features that have been very helpful.
1) I have a very small hand, and the cutter fits well. I'm right handed, but it flips 100% (and it feels good in my hand both ways), so it is great for left or right handers. And, the 45 mm size is a nice fit for my needs.
2) I especially appreciate the "rough" edges along the top edge where I rest my thumb, since it permits me to firmly press down on the fabric.
3) It is made of tungsten steel, meaning it has a long life (I've cut 2 quilts using this blade.
4) The blade cover is nice. I must admit I've tried to cut fabric with it in place, trust me, you have to move it back or the blade won't cut.
5) While I have not yet replaced the blade, I did check it out to make sure it is easy to replace - all you do is unscrew it from the back (hand screw - no tools needed) and put the new one on.

Since I had never used a rotary cutter, it took a bit of learning to use it correctly. If this is your first, practice on some scrap fabric before you begin on your expensive stuff.

I have not used any of the more expensive cutters, but am completely satisfied with this one for my personal cutting needs, cotton and polyester blend fabrics for quilting.

When looking into purchasing a rotary cutter, all the reviews read "life-changing". I was like calm down, it's just a rotary cutter. However when I finally bought one, I flipped out. It really is life-changing!

I'm an artist, and I frequently need to cut fabric and paper for my pieces. I've never been able to cut a straight line in fabric with scissors. This tools is great for that. It saved me time and headache with a recent project involving fabric. I've started using it for everything. I hardly pull out my X-acto blades anymore. I just started a bookmaking course, and foresee using this bad boy quite a bit.

Even though the description does not mention the automatic blade guard on this rotary cutter and the reviews don't seem to mention it either, the photo shows this newer model, so when I purchased mine, I assumed that was the style. However, the Olfa rotary cutter I received was the original style. It works fine, but if you want the automatic blade guard, make sure you buy one that mentions it in the description, don't rely on the photo.

I bought this to keep with my portable quilting kit. It's the same as the one I've been using for the past six years to cut width-of-fabric or even small piece work. The blade protector is second nature to use but it's not as safe as some others because the blade protector doesn't lock, but i don't have kids around, and I am very confident with how i use it. I prefer this handle to the "ergonomic" designs as a personal preference because I am not comfortable with my index finger on top of the handle. For the way I grip the handle when cutting, this design fits my hand perfectly. The 60mm blade lasts longer than the smaller blades, and is easily sharpened with a special tool from the notions department, and easy to replace when worn out.

How awesome this price was on this wonderful tool! All it took was one google search to see this was an outstanding bargain! I bought one b/c I am starting the hobby of quilting. This thing really does cut through some fabric. I have been cutting through 5/6 layers of cotton--it does better with around 4 layers, but darn, this blade is sharp! Excellent product at an excellent price! :D

This past spring, I attended two quilting bees where the quilts made are donated to hospitals. This was my first time ever quilting. I wanted to work on a quilt at home, but didn't have the right tools, so I went to a fabric store and bought this rotary cutter as well as the measuring board (not sure of its proper name) to use as a base. Having been a sewer my whole life, I had only used scissors to cut fabric, so finding out there was such a thing as a rotary cutter was a very happy surprise--WOW, it makes cutting fabric so much easier, especially for someone who has arthritis in their hands!

As a leftie (left-handed person), I am used to having to "make do" with tools created for the right-handed majority, but this tool can be used in either hand--another nice surprise! It has a quick and simple blade cover that can be slid into place with a touch of the thumb when you are done cutting.

The cutter also has a ridged finger guard (on both sides) to keep your finger from slipping while cutting. Unfortunately, it was not quite enough for a newbie like myself. Yesterday, while cutting out pieces for a quilt panel, my index finger slid too far forward on the handle and met the blade while it was rotating. Luckily, I immediately realized what I'd done and stopped before I did too much damage, so it was only a small cut.

In summary, the OLFA rotary cutter is a great tool for quilting or sewing. I just wish that the finger guard was a bit larger or the indentation more pronounced so that there was little to no chance of one's finger sliding forward onto the blade. Keep in mind that you will need a measuring board or other protective surface under the fabric to use this tool as it features a very fine and sharp cutting surface.
