The Review:

No buyer’s remorse with this OLFA 45mm Deluxe Ergonomic Rotary Cutter.

The best OLFA rotary cutter I have owned! I absolutely love it!

Why you might ask?


  • This rotary cutter is good for almost anything: cloth, fabric, paper, wallpaper, and even leather.       


  • It is comfortable to hold


  • And the best part: It has a safety feature!


Yes, this is what makes this OLFA rotary cutter so amazing in my eyes! I think it is safe to say (though I am not in any way recommending) that this rotary cutter is great for any avid sewer with pets or small children.

The red button on the side of this rotary cutter is the safety.

You simply press it, and hold the handle like you would a regular rotary cutter. The large black protruding handle will move with your hand, allowing the blade to stick out far enough for you to cut normally.

When you release the handle, to set the rotary cutter down, the blade resumes its original position.

Click the red button back the other way to lock the blade in place.

Because sometimes, as quilters, we forget to close our rotary cutters, I believe that this rotary can reduce many accidents. Regular rotary cutter can be harmful and dangerous! {If you have never used a rotary cutter, don’t laugh! = ) I’m serious! These things can be a deadly weapon}

I honestly believe OLFA has made a great product here!


What does OLFA say?

“A rolling razor blade that’s perfect for all of your sewing and quilting needs. Sharp enough to cut through more than 6 layers of fabric, making quick work of your strip, block, and pattern cutting.

    I’m currently working on a twin size strip quilt, and there’s no way I could have worked on a project like this without my rotary cutter and mat. Since I’ve used my rotary cutter a lot (I have a quilting business), it’s starting to get dull, and having a back up is always nice. :)

  2. suzanne says:

    My husband and I just returned from a 12 hour drive to see my first grandchild. Of course he now has a baby quilt made by his grandma! :) He is a cutie. I can ‘t wait for my next visit when I take MY mother (89 years old) to see her great grandson.

  3. Glenda Bass says:

    I have signed up for a new quilting class this month. This will be my first quilting class and quilt and I would love to have a Rotary Cutter. I am currently using scissors.

  4. Jan Harbuck says:

    I just finished piecing a Quilt of Valor and need to send to a quilter! I am also working on a king sized quilt for a friend who ordered it from me. I have about 12 other quilts in various stages of completion. I would love to win this rotary cutter!

  5. Annette Pepple says:

    I have just started learning to quilt in the last year. I am currently working on finishing 2 quilts, a table runner and matching pillow, and last but not least a wall hanging. I have so many projects in my head that I want to do I had to stop starting projects and finish the ones I have half or almost done. I am always so excited to start the next project before I’ve even finished the one I’m working on! Would Love to win the cutting tool! Best of Luck to everyone and thanks for a chance to win!

  6. Pam says:

    I can not live without a rotary cutter. But they do wear out! I have been making denim quilts
    For grandchildren out of old jeans. I like to add other scraps of fabric and maybe apliques to
    Jazz it up and make it different. Sometimes it takes awhile to figure out what I want to do.
    Rotary cutters make the job so much easier. Now if we could just make the blades not get
    Dull so fast!!!!!

  7. Tammy says:

    I’m on my second rotary cutter in as many years. I make ask kinds of sewing things…quilts, home goods, clothing. I always have my rotary cutter within reach. I sometimes worry about it falling and cutting me or my kids getting it. I’m very good at closing it down, but I’ve dropped them a time or two and nearly took off a toe! I’m currently working on two quilts, a t-shirt shirt quilt and a pathways quilt.

  8. Clarisse Lunt says:

    I have several rotary cutters but after using them for a while my hand cramps up. I am currently in the middle of cutting out three quilts that have to be done and ready to send to their new homes by May 1st. A new rotary cutter that doesn’t make my hand cramp would be a wonderful addition to my quilting needs.

  9. Cathie says:

    Hey Bright Eyes,

    What a fun thing to do!! I am always working on several quilting projects at once; maybe it is ADD…or I can never resist trying the next idea. Presently, I am finishing up a twin quilt in disappearing 9 patch pattern, a table runner and a tea themed wall hanging. I love a rotary cutter and all its cutting magic; those straight lines are awesome and make piecing so much easier.
    Let me just say your contest is ending on a super fab day; my birthday!
    Good luck to everyone and thanks for this great chance to win:)

  10. Michelle says:

    I have a double wedding ring quilt to make for my nephews upcoming wedding. Lots to cut and a new cutter would be great.I love quilting. I’m not sure what took me so long to get started with it, but now that I’m into it, It’s all I do in my spare time :) .

  11. Amanda L says:

    I just finished my first disappearing nine patch and I’m working on an English Paper Piecing project now. So much cutting lately!

  12. Heather Woodyard says:

    I have just basted my first table topper which has bear paw blocks on it. It will be my first finished project. I have a quilt to finish up next. I’ve only been quilting just over a year now. I really enjoy using the rotary cutter for cutting my fabric. I am currently cutting squares for my next project.

  13. Julie Boyack says:

    Hi there! I would love to win this rotary cutter, the one I have doesnt have a safety feature and I am forever forgetting to close it! Lot’s of little cuts to the fingers!
    I am new to quilting and have been doing a ton of quilts for Linus, childrens hospital and now I will be doing them for hospice. It is very nice of you to do this!thanks!

  14. Christine Faller says:

    Good morning. It would be wonderful to win this cutter. After taking advantage of Jo-ann’s sale on flannel, I am about to make 3 rag quilts for 3 of my grandkids. I am sure the Olaf rotary cutter would make it very quick and easy to cut out the rectangles for them. Thank you for holding this contest

  15. Cindy Berg says:

    I like this Olfa Rotary Cutter because of the squeezable handle that closes the blade when you let go. I always forget to close the blade on the other kind and have cut myself.

    I have several quilts in progress that I would use this on. My family is doing a BOTM, I have a round robin quilt to complete, and I want to make a crazy quilt.

    Rotary cutters are a blessing to us quilters.

  16. Donna says:

    I am currently working on a kiss lock change purse, several quilts and a few summer shirts too! I go through rotary cutter blades quite quickly! And Monday I am picking up a new BOM for my LQS.

  17. Sue Tiller says:

    I’m just now putting the binding on a quilt I made using Anita Good Primitive Christmas blocks. With all the snow we are having in Indiana, I’m staying home and pulling out UFOs also.

  18. Tracy Fritz says:

    I just finished up a quilt for a baby gift for a friend of mine. Bless her heart, she’s 47, 4 girls, one with Cystic Fibrosis and she just had a little boy. I also just finished up a border on a Round Robin Quilt that we are participating in with our Quilting Guild. Would love to win this & Good Luck to everyone.

  19. Hunter W. says:

    Hi!…I am new to quilting but am facing my fears, and starting smail, with quilted wallhangings since I have pieces to finish up, and really only havephysical enerrgy for small projects. I have two cutters, one purchased online, but they didntgive me a new blade in it…i couldnt figure out why but I didn’t fuss.
    I’d love to win this one. Thank you and happy quilting!!

  20. Peg Jacobs says:

    Love the giveaway item! In the middle of too many quilts. Love picking fabric and piecing…just a little slow on getting thru the quilting part of it

  21. Rebecca says:

    Love these cutters. My friend had this same one. It’s much easier than mine. I’m in the middle of making a baby quilt for my cousin. It’s ask pieced and basted. Just gotta quilt it!

  22. Brian says:

    I’m currently working on a scrappy quilt of all pink and purple. Hope to have it ready for my wife to quilt by the end of the week! I go through rotary cutters like crazy!
