Great Tool for Patchwork Cutting
on 28 March 2010
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.
