Product Description

The Pilot Pen Olfa RTY-2/DX rotary cutter with a 45 mm blade is a deluxe rotary cutter designed for accurately and efficiently cutting fabric into shapes and strips. Its sharp blade easily slices through thin and thick pieces of fabric, making it ideal for multi-layer and gentle curve cutting as well as sewing, quilting and craft. The cutter incorporates an ergonomic handle, which helps to reduce hand and wrist fatigue when performing lengthy tasks, and features a dual-action safety mechanism. It is designed to accommodate both right and left-handed users.The design of the Pilot Pen Olfa RTY-2/DX rotary cutter with a 45 mm blade stems from the invention of the world’s first snap-off blade cutter by Yoshio Okada in 1956. Okada, the founder of Olfa Corporation, was inspired to create this incredibly useful tool after breaking off segments of chocolate bars and analysing the sharp edges of broken glass. The snap-off blade cutter has since become a bestseller across the world and is commonly referred to as an “Olfa cutter”. The length, width and angle of the blade, established by Okada, have also become the worldwide standard for the snap-off blade.Olfa’s carefully selected materials, superior engineering techniques, vast knowledge and experimental know-how about knives and blades, and strictly controlled manufacturing processes, enable it to manufacture the highest quality products in the world.

This is a really good tool when used for the RIGHT JOB i.e. for cutting precise fabric pieces such as patchwork. It has a very sharp cutting edge and will cut 4 layers of fabric at a time. If you try to use it for more layers, you will blunt the blade very quickly.
The downside of this is that while it will cut straight lines perfectly, it is not easy to manipulate around strong curves or more intricate dress designs. I would not recommend it for cutting out dressmaking patterns - stick to good quallity scissors! The blade does blunt fairly quickly so I would recommend buying a spare. The cutter comes with only its working blade. Had it come with a spare, I would have given it 5 stars.

I use this cutting wheel in my sewing workshop and it has reduced cutting time by half and sometimes more without moving the fabric. I've got a blade for paper and another blade for fabric. I can cut through up to 6 layers of lining fabric in one go. Up to 4 layers of cotton. I stick to one or two layers of silk as the fabric can move a little. It makes paper pattern cutting easier. The blades don't last very long for me - one blade has cut out 14 dresses and now cuts paper. Compared with the cost of time saved the blades are relatively cheap.

Bought this cutter in order to use with fabrics, yet I find myself using it for anything requiring precision cuts ..... most of all paper and cardboard. I do like to print my own Birthday, Christmas and other cards and this little tool makes life so much easier.

I have yet to come across a better rotary cutter!!

Ideally the cutter should be used on a "self healing" mat as the blade is very sharp, yet I have used this cutter on hard surfaces and the blade is still going strong!!

I really cannot recommend the Olfa Deluxe Rotary Cutter highly enough! Great buy!

Exactly met my requirements and have used it a lot already. Easy to use and less strain on my fingers than a pair of scissors

I really like this rotary cutter - it has that curved handle and squeeze operation for cutting. Easy replace blades and I believe if you take care of your hobby tools, they last a long time :-)

I am so impressed with this rotary cutter. I have never used one before but as I am having problems with my thumb I thought it might help. It came enclosed in plastic and card which I was reasonably easy to get into. I am surprised and delighted at how easy it was to use. I used it to cut out a dress and it took me only a fraction of the time it would have taken me with scissors and was kind on my thumb. The blade is very, very sharp and I was glad I had paid a little extra and got the safer version. I was concerned that I would find the grip uncomfortable and thought I might have to lock it in the cutting position but it was fine to use in the safer position so the blade was only engaged when the trigger was squeezed.
As I had never used a rotary cutter before I thought it might be difficult at first but it was very easy to use and I found it cut very cleanly as I was using a material that frayed very easily this was a bonus. I am so please with the cutter.

As someone new to rotary cutters and left handed so used to struggling with many scissors etc, this was a nice surprise. Having only used a cheap and rather blunt rotary cutter in the past, this was worth the investment.
The handle fits comfortably in your hand - no blisters after cutting out endless quilting squares. It has a nice weight to it, doesn't feel flimsy, without being awkard or overly heavy. The safety feature is simple but very effective. With children in the house, and being rather naturally clumsy myself this is a real finger saver for all the family. The combination of the squeeze handle to lower the blade and the red push to lock button is simple but very effective.

The blade arrived sharp and is still going well, despite having been put through it's paces with lots of use including thick cotton batting, heavy duty felt and 2 fullsize quilts. Would definitely recommend this cutter and hope to use it for many future projects.
