Olfa vs. Fiskar 45 cm Rotary Cutters,
This review is from: Fiskars 45mm Contour Rotary Cutter (195210-1001) (Kitchen)
I had the opportunity to try the Olfa and the Fiskar rotary cutters from a friend who had both. After trying them for about 15 minutes, I decided I preferred the Fiskar cutter. The Olfa was okay and worked well, but the Fiskar cutter felt better ergonomically. The Fiskar handle was curved, sturdier with a better grip. I don't care for the straight cutters. Another friend also preferred the Fiskar cutter. We all decided Fiskar cutter was the best ergonomically, but will probably buy the Olfa blades. I hope this helps for those who may be on the border between the two. I rate it 4 stars because the blade is better on the Olfa.

Thank you for this review, and especially the comparison between the two cutters. And it's great to know that the blades are interchangeable between the two products.

Were you comparing this Fiskars cutter to the standard Olfa or to the ergonomic Olfa? It sounds like maybe the former... I was curious how the two ergonomic models compare. I've used the standard straight Olfa quite a bit and it can be quite tough on the wrist and tiring - I'm definitely looking forward to upgrading to an ergonomic model, just need to decide which!

Would Olfa blades fit on these properly?
