Easy to cut multiple layers of fabric with this thing.

Auto retract blade with locking button is a great safety feature...no more open blades lay in wating to give a nasty cut.

I have been using the Olfa Rotary cutters since they first became available to quilters. This one has an ergonomic to fit the hand well. It is easy to change the blade and the only problem I have with it is that it is not easy to change to left handed use. I would recommend the Omnigrid cutter for ambidexterous use which is important to me as I don't care to move the fabric around and there are times when it is awkward to move the matt.

As a quilter, the need for a rotary cutter is an absolute. This item is the best and can cut through many layers because it is 60mm. I have only used 45mm before this, so I am amazed at the amount of extra layers of fabric that can be cut with this size. Olfa is a great cutter and Amazon had the best price.

As a quilter, I've been using rotary cutters for years now. I have tried several brands. I prefer my Olfa cutter over the others. The handle is comfortable and the cutting action is very smooth. Olfa blades are sharp and very good quality. This is one of my most used tools in my sewing room.

This is my 2nd Olfa 45mm rotary cutter. I'd been wanting the ergonomic cutter for some time but was having a hard time justifying the purchase - why would I need 2 lifetime products? Well I read a tidbit that changed my mind... If you put a blade on both sides of the machine you'll get perfect bias strips cut in no time! Alas, I'd justified the rest of my reasons, I now have 2 cutters; that way when working on a project I can have 1 set up for paper and 1 for fabric, or 1 for pinking and so on... In addition, I'll now have a primary cutter w an ergonomic handle to assist my arthritic hands. Guilt solved.

Beyond all that, the ergonomic design is more comfortable than my older cutter - thus, ending hand fatigue and helping me sew/craft longer than normal. This newer design has the quick change design, so it's easier for me to change blades, actually, it's really a fast process. Last week I went back and forth from the cutter to the wave blade several times without much ado.

Size Name: 60mm
I bought this product 1 month ago (along with an Omnigrid cutting mat) and I love it. It took about 10 minutes to get used to working with it. I chose the model with the ergonomic handle because I like having a larger item to grip. The soft black pad on the handle prevents my hand from slipping when I have to apply pressure to cut through 6 layers of fabric at once. The retractable blade is wonderful. My main concern with a rotary cutting tool was cutting myself by accident. The retractable blade not only prevents self injury but it also protects the blade from unwanted contact with other items which could nick or dull the blade.

I'm so glad I bought this product! It has saved a ton of time and fabric when quilting. I just cut 3 yards of bias tape in about 10 minutes. I can't imagine going back to a fabric pen and scissors to make bias tape.

Size Name: 45mm
This cutter smoothly slices through upholstery fabric. Blade replacement is simple and intuitive and you can swap it to either the left or right side (I am left handed). I like the locking mechanism, it makes me feel a bit more safer with that satisfying click.

With a Fiskars 18"x24" Self Healing Cutting Mat, I am able to trace around some basic patterns, but for detail work, the smaller diameter blade might be nicer. A large mat could be idea depending on how much space you have. Fiskars has a folding mat, which appeals to me, but I haven't tried it.

I purchased this for less than the MRSP (yay!) and liked it enough that I obtained a pink one along with a pinking blade (fun!). Good luck with your research!

I didn't know this product existed until I took a few sewing classes (so fun, by the way). It's wonderful, nifty product! And here in Amazon, I found it at about a 1/3 the price it was in the store I took my class in. Way to go Amazon!!

Size Name: 45mm Verified Purchase
I purchased the Olfa 45mm cutter and I am very pleased with it. I like that it has a safety feature that locks the cutter in the closed position when you are not using it... other cutters have a cover that snaps over the blade but the safety feature on the cutter itself is such a nicer more convenient way to hide the blade. I bought the 45mm because I was under the impression that I was going to be curve cutting and it turns out the mat that I bought to cut on (Olfa Gridded Cutting Mat) left light slices in the surface so I will be using my scissors to cut curves instead, now I wish I would have bought the 60mm rotary cutters. But because that is a problem with the mat, and not the cutter, this product is still five stars; it is durable and slices through many layers of fabric with ease. I don't know why I didn't buy it soon.
