Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Tool for Patchwork Cutting 28 Mar 2010
By Freespirit TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for cutting fabric 29 Aug 2012
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.

I find this cutter very easy to use. I have arthritis in both hands and don't have much grip, but this cutter is a joy to use. Would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars like the best pizza cutter ever 19 April 2012
Verified Purchase
Made cutting strips for rag-rugs positively fun. Husband and son literally quarrelling over who got to do it when previously took serious bribery. Am impressed. Very very sharp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Crafting made easy
Nothing else comes near to this for sharp sliced cutting of fabric in one swift action, equal only to a guillotine. You would never get these results from cutting with scissors. Read more

I have seen this in adds and it seems to wizz through but I don't feel the blade is that sharp I feel the blade seems blunt

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the safety angle
Cuts beautifully and the grip safety feature is ideal for me as the blade is retracted as soon as I let go.

This is excellent. Goes through layers of fabric like a hot knife through butter. I find it useful for trimming along seams to give a flatter, neater finish as well. Read more
