This 45mm Ergonomic Rotary Cutter from OLFA has many design features that make cutting jobs comfortable and safe. The handle is curved to make extensive jobs easier on the hand. Cut longer and safer with the squeeze-trigger that pulls the blade back into the cutter. The grooves are designed to prevent fingers from slipping. Blades can be changed efficiently with the quick-change blade feature. The Ergonomic Rotary Cutter is packaged with an OLFA RB45-1 Rotary Blade already loaded in it. Made from durable tungsten steel, the blade offers long-lasting sharpness for crisp and clean cuts.
This Rotary Cutter can be used to cut a multitude of materials, including wool, cotton, vinyl, leather, paper, and more. The blade is sharp enough to go through six layers of fabric or other material at the same time.
To use the Ergonomic Rotary Cutter, which is designed for both left and right-handed use, simply give the handle a squeeze for blade extension. Directing the blade away from the body, apply gentle pressure as the blade is rolled forward. When the squeeze handle is released the blade retracts. Use the safety lock to secure the blade in place when not in use or lock it open while working on a project.
For best results, use a ruler when straight cuts are needed. While one hand holds the cutter, one hand should be on the ruler. Always apply pressure equally on the cutter and ruler as the cutter runs the length of the ruler. Cut approximately six inches at a time. Reposition the blade if needed and continue until finished. For all your cutting jobs, use an OLFA Self-Healing Rotary Mat to protect work area surfaces and extend the usefulness of the blade. Change the blade as wear necessitates.
