Choose your weapons
Rotary cutters. There are so many varieties available now. There are big ones, and small ones. There are cutters with straight blades and some with wavy blades. They come in an ergonomic design, or just plain ;-) The list could probably boggle the mind.
So, what is your weapon of choice?
I had problems with this large blade rotary. The lock would not stay in the locked position when I would use it. I wrote to the company and they sent this replacement, no questions asked -
But my favorite baby is this one
She was my first rotary and I still love to use her when I am cutting fabric. I also find that my blades don't dull as easily when I use her sister mat.
I have several mats, and I find that the Olfa mat seems softer then some other brands. I don't know if that is what makes the difference in dulling a blade, but I'm an Olfa girl :-)
So choose your weapon................. and start cutting :-)
