Select Rotary Cutter (45mm or 60mm)

"At 74, I had a stroke in March of 2018. My occupational therapist had me bring in all of my cutting instruments for quilting. I brought in my Ginger and Fiskar scissors, my QS by Alex Angderson, Olfa and Martelli ergonomic rotary cutters and pinking shears. The result was that the only rotary cutter my hands can handle is the QS rotary cutter. It doesn't wobble and cuts straight on WOF long cuts or even LOF along the selvage. The bias cuts are accurate. I used it to make a clamshell quilt. Wonderful! I have donated all the others. I have even gifted the QS rotary cutter for quilting friends of mine who have Parkinson's, MS, or who have fallen. Everyone says that the QS is a "God-send" for weak wrists. Thanks for representing such a quality product."

I have both of these rotary cutters and they are by far my favourites. The weight of them makes it far easier to cut fabric since you don't have to press down as much. Love, love, love these.

OK, I got this more than a year ago and it is my favorite cutter. I'm ordering the 60 and a couple more of the 45's to have in my travel/class pack and just to have an extra in my sewing room for when my friends come and sew with me. Easiest blade change, best cutter, love being able to switch blade sides, and heavy weight to help with the cutting. LOVE your products. Thanks!

I don't like the cutting or ironing/pressing chores required for quilting. Always having to stand in one place, doing the same thing over and over, and it's not easy! I have always just been glad that I didn't have to heat my iron on the cast iron stove or in the fireplace. Finally, I can say that sort of thing about my rotary cutter. I no longer have to press the rotary cutter down while moving it and hoping it will cut my fabric. Now, I glide along, tapping to open the cutter and tapping to close it. Cutting fabric is as easy as cutting butter. I don't mind cutting fabric any more.

I own a small LQS, and have been using the Quilter's Rotary cutter as my primary cutter in the shop for a little over a year now. It has been a game changer for me. I'm left handed and have always had a hard time finding a cutter that was comfortable and easy to use. When I opened my shop, I was using a Brand XXXXXX left hand cutter and BRAND XXXXXX for right handed cuts (because sometimes, you just have to cut right handed). It was a real problem keeping 2 cutters going, as I inevitably would grab the wrong cutter for the job. The deal breaker for me and the Brand XXXXXX cutter was the day I cut well over $1000 worth of fabric in an single shift. My hands, arms and neck ached terribly. I had seen an advert for the Quilter's Cutter and ordered one - untested - on the spot. I figured anything had to be better than what I was doing. The day I got my cutter was another huge sales day for me, but I went home at the end of the day and nothing hurt - not even my arthritic hands!!! I dumped the Brand XXXXXX in the trash and have never looked back. I have given away all of my other cutters (I had about a dozen different ones that I had tried over the years). The only cutter I sell in my shop now is the Quilter's . In fact, I sold 5 of them today during a class!! My students love them too!

I am a 84 year quilter with arthritis in both hands and wrist. When I purchased my 45mm, I thought just another thing that won’t work, the safety of blade helped with my decision to purchase it. I can sing with joy as I use it. it is fantastic. Thank you, please share my experience with other people with arthritis. Truly unbelievable. Now I will purchase the 60mm. Thank You again

I received the 18" x 24" Dual Side Cutting Mat and 45mm Rotary Cutter for Christmas. Both have been wonderful to use. The cutter has quickly become the favorite tool in my quilting room!

Great investment! It is well balanced. The weight makes it very comfortable to hold and use. I have both the 45 and 60mm and could not be happier. Best I have used!

I am giving this a 3/5 stars. I LOVE the cutter. Hand fatigue is a thing of the past. The reason I am giving it a 3 is after 2 1/2 years of use, the blade no longer stays on. I contacted the company and was told to contact my local quilt shop to buy a rebuild kit. None in my area can find the kit. I feel like for the price you pay it should last longer than 2 1/2 years.

I purchased my QS Rotary cutter at my local sewing machine repair/sales shop. It was an investment as it was a little bit more in price than other cutters I have seen. However, I love it! I am a fairly new quilter and bought one of those that are part of a little kit at first... it was ok and worked. However I love the weight of this cutter and recommend watching the video "How to" for it... because I did not know that I was opening the safety wrong. I recommend this cutter. thank you!

I really enjoy using the 45 mm rotary cutter. It fits my hand and the weight keeps the cutter wobbling as I cut.

I have used a variety of rotary cutters in my quilting. This is outstanding and my immediate favorite. I love the weighted feel of the cutter, how easy it is to use right or left handed and I just twist my wrist and it snaps closed. I would recommend everyone try this cutter.

I love this rotary cutter, it is heavy and is very comfortable in my hand when cutting, I have the 45mm and I am going to buy the 60mm, the blade is extremely sharp and cuts through several layers of fabric, every should buy one.

This is the best rotary cutter I have ever used. It is weighted and very easy to open and close with one hand by pushing the side button to open and rotating the wrist to close. I would recommend it to everyone!!!! I am going to buy one for my quilting friend who attends classes with me. She will love it!!

I saw this rotary cutter at a quilt shop during a quilt run. The employees were raving about it. I bought one (45mm) and it is so much better than the name brand that I used for years. This one is much heavier and very solid. It is very easy to hold and you don't have to push down so hard to cut due to the weight of this rotary cutter. I've had mine for over a year and still haven't replaced the blade. I see that the blade is a Quilter's brand and will replace it with the same. It was so easy to check the brand of the blade. No screw or washer to have to fool with or risk cutting your fingers. This rotary cutter is well worth paying a little extra for. I am very happy with it. That's why I gave it five stars. Quilter's products high quality.

Many years ago I bought a brand name rotary cutter, and being my first one and leary about cutting myself while using it, I just didn’t use it much — it didn’t feel safe in my hand. Then about 4 years ago at a workshop I went to, your distributor had the Quilters cutter for class use. I fell in love the first time I picked it up! The balanced weight and smooth cutting was perfect! It’s also made much better than other plastic ones. The safety features of changing the blade, plus versatility of opening and closing are unmatched. I paid a little more than I did for the other I’d had, but the peace of mind while using is worth every penny!

These rotary cutters are by far the best in my opinion. Their weight and feel in hand are perfect. I will never buy into the other brand(s) hype again. They are junk compared to the quality of QS rotary cutters. Their blades are held much more secure and sturdy within these cutters which adds to the life of the blade. The partial blade exposure setting protects and helps keep the blade bending and wearing. They can still open to expose the blade further for thicker cutting. I have the 45 and the 60 cutters. Wish there was a 28. Great product.

I have struggle with cutting fabric due to surgeries. One day in a class someone suggested I try a QS rotary cutter. Changing to QS I am free to cut all my fabric without pain or any cutting issues. Change to this cutter and you will not be disappointed!

Totally in love with this cutter. I have been dealing with a partially torn tendon in my right thumb and I am right handed. Cutting has become painful after doing it and I have tried every cutter on the market as well as using an Accuquilt when possible. At any rate, I recently learned about this cutter in an online sewing group I belong to. I figured I had nothing to lose and honestly didn't think that a weighted cutter could make cutting easier, but I was totally wrong. I have been using the cutter for a few weeks now and it makes a tremendous difference. Thank you for inventing an amazing tool.

I so love this rotary cutter. I have gone thru Fiskars and a couple of other off brands which keep breaking on the mechanism. Plus, the blades are an issue to change out. With this cutter, all the complexity of changing out the blade is gone. The weight of it works so much easier on my shoulder and hands. Great product and worth the investment.

May seem like it’s too heavy but it is perfect. The weight helps. I don’t have to apply as much pressure to get through several layers of fabric and the blade that comes with it lasts forever. I am in love with the rotary cutter. Certainly worth the money. The design is fabulous because you can cut with both sideshow you don’t have to move your fabric and ruler as often and line it up again. Saves quite a bit of time. Would like to see different colors in the future.

I like the idea of being able to use this cutter with both hands as I am a lefty. Like most lefties, I use both hands for many things. However, what is a little disappointing is that the tap to close only works in the right hand position unless you push the cover totally in the opposite position/past the closing if you are using it with the left hand.

This is the best rotary cutter on the market! I broke my wrist earlier this year it was very hard for me to cut 2 layers of fabric because of having to use pressure on the cutter. With this cutter, because it is heavier, I do not need to push down to cut my fabric - less pain in my wrist. I also bought the 6 x 24 ruler. used the ruler to cut a satin fabric for a sash for Grandson's pirate costume - the ruler held even the satin in place. GREAT combo.

This is such a great rotary cutter, when I showed it to my quilting group, they were amazed and want me to get them one! They loved the weight that saves your shoulders! And the "either" side blade is super, especially when I shared it with them! And to change the blades! so quick and easy. It cuts easier and more accurate! I live in Jordan, so I will be stocking up for my gang~!

It is definitely the best Rotary Cutter I have ever used. I bought it at Quilt Week-Paducah this year. My friend, Christine, used it at our last Sit n Sew and she immediately wrote down all the information so she could buy one. I will need one in other sizes too!
