If you already have a pair of good fabric scissors and a straight edge, I would advise you to think twice before investing $40 that you may regret - Cutter $13, self-healing mat $12 and 5-blade cutter pack $15. The scissors that I have used for 30 years will not fail to cut up all of these quilt pieces.
Update: I tried this again after getting the titanium blades [2 for $9]. I simply cannot cut as straight with the scissors as I can with this rotary cutter. I treat the blade with great care so I do not accidentally ding it and make it dull as quickly as the first one. I would give 5 stars if the original blade had not proved to be so disappointing.
I gave this cutter 4 stars because it did everything I expected as well as I expected and nothing more. (If I gave this 5 stars then what would I give to something that wowed me?)
I got this product because of the great reviews, I had very high expectations of this product, bordering unreasonable I guess. I expected this product to cut through a thick towel, it did cut through in some places, but others it did not. It works really well on thinner materials, but apparently not super thick DKNY towels. My bad. I'm still going to use it a ton, and I still think it deserves 4 stars, but if it cut through that towel, it would have amazed me and deserved the 5 stars. Shipping as usual was fast and the product arrived safely without any defect.
The 45 milimeter blade that comes with the cutter is very sharp, and cuts through fabrics like butter. I’ve tried it on spandex and even tougher materials like 20 gauge vinyl and cotton canvas, all without any problems. The blade extender is on the top of the unit, where your thumb naturally rests when holding the cutter, and locks into the extended cutter position with a sturdy click. The blade comes configured for a right-handed user, but if you’re a lefty, it’s easy to unscrew the blade and put it on the other side of the cutter.
The blade retracter is the only thing about this cutter that’s not so ambidextrous – if you’re a righty, it feels very natural to press it with your thumb. But if you hold the cutter in your left hand, your thumb has to cross over to hit the retract button, which feels kind of awkward.
If you’re right-handed (like most of us), this is definitely a good rotary cutter to start with, but if you’re left-handed, you may want to spend some more time searching for a more lefty-friendly design.
