In 1979 Yoshio Okada, the founder of OLFA, invented the world’s first rotary cutter. It revolutionized fabric cutting and now OLFA rotary cutters are used by makers around the world. OLFA celebrates this achievement with the release of the 45mm Limited Edition Ruby Rotary Cutter.
The most popular size available, this Straight Handle Cutter features a durable body with a blade cover for safety. The rolling razor blade cuts materials into shapes, strips, and pieces for sewing, quilting, and craft projects. Integrated grooves in the handle help prevent finger slippage for safe cutting.
Pre-loaded with OLFA RB45-1 Rotary Blade. The high-quality tungsten carbide tool steel blade offers unparalleled sharpness and superior edge retention. Use the Straight Handle Cutter on cotton, wool, paper, vinyl, leather, and more.
Designed for both right- and left-handed use.
To begin cutting, slide the safety lock back to expose the blade. When cutting, apply gentle, even pressure to roll the cutter forward, away from the body. When cutting is complete, push the slide forward to safely cover the blade when not in use.
Use a ruler as a guide for straight cuts. Always keep equal pressure on both the cutter and the ruler from beginning to end of each cut. With fingers in a comfortable position, apply gentle downward pressure to the ruler. Continue to move fingers up the ruler with the cut. To ensure accuracy and safety, only cut the distance of one hand-length at a time and reposition as needed.
Always use a Self-Healing Rotary Mat when cutting to protect your work surface and prolong the life of the blade.
