I have been using Olfa rotary cutting supplies for years, including Olfa Rotary Cutters. Recently, two of my cats have been showing too much interest in one of my cutters and, for the first time,I nicked a fingertip on the blade. So, I decided to try the Olfa Deluxe Rotary Cutter, which offers several improvements, such as a button that locks the blade closed and a self-retracting blade. Of course, as with any sharp cutting device, one must always be careful with the Olfa Deluxe Rotary Cutter. But I find the improvements to be significant.
In addition the Olfa Deluxe Rotary can be used by those who are right handed and those who are left handed.
Very sharp and nice to have the guard when you release the handle. Cuts through many layers at a time...also fingers, keep them out of the way. Use this daily for quilting and cutting stabilizers for machine embroidery.
This cutter is very sharp and easy on arthritic hands.
makes cutting quilt pieces a breeze , anyone who sews should have one
Not as much pressure is needed when cutting as it is with my other rotary cutters. Love it!!
This is a basic rotary cutter. It is well made and lightweight. The blade is stable and secure. I bought this for a 12 year old that is learning to quilt.
The reason I love this cutter is that it is very easy to lock it. - it does it automatically.
Others had a level to pull back and because I have arthritis it was difficult sometimes.
I'll be lost without this great cutter when I work with fabrics, specially when doing quilts
Great little rotary cutter. Comfortable to hold, even for extended periods of cutting. Very happy with this purchase.
I have used this for about a week now, cutting all different kinds of material and it is great! I even purchased the pinking blade and the change out is easy! I will be buying couple more for Christmas presents this year.
This rotary cutter worked like a charm for making all the strips for my latest quilt.
I have several rotary cutters. Many of them are annoying to open and close each time. This Olfa Deluxe is really easy. You hold it, it open, you let go, it's closed. No annoying button or slide. There is a button to lick it closed and I'm okay with that. The size of the handle, in comparison to other handles, is larger and easier to hold for long projects.
The safety features (retracting and lockable blade) are a significant plus, and the ergonomic handle adds comfort - either for those who will use it extensively, or those with arthritis in their hands. I almost went for a less expensive cutter and am so glad I didn't. A quality item that will withstand years of use.
Using this cutting tool with the self-healing board has made me newly enthused with sewing something...anything...getting to use the tools. Sharp. Oh my. Watch your fingers. I did get the one that has self closing cover. Cuts through multiple layers of cloth like 'butter,' but I am noticing the more I use and cut pellon interfacings with the fusible sticky stuff that the wheel appears to be getting a wee tad dull. We'll see. I love it.
I really like this rotary cutter. My last one (another brand) would always go back in while I was cutting. I also like that you don't have to remember to close it after each cut.
Product meets or exceeds expectations.
