The Fashion Comfort Loop Rotary Cutter with a 45 mm blade makes cutting a variety of materials comfortable and easy. A curved shape with a loop handle feels natural in your hand and allows for added comfort and control, while a versatile design provides excellent visibility for both right- or left-handed users. In addition, a sliding button extends the blade during use and retracts it for safe storage.

The blade is nice for reducing burrs for paper cutting, and the retracting button is nice to have to keep the blade encased and safe. The blade gets a little dull for cutting paper after a few uses and requires a little more pressure and extra passes to complete the cut. Although it's still sharp enough to slice a piece of my thumb off after it jumped off the straightedge. Overall I give this cutter a 3/4 thumbs up.

What you see pictured is actually the Fiskars® Titanium Softgrip® Comfort Loop Rotary Cutter. What they ship is actually the cheaper Comfort Loop Rotary Cutter. Yes it is the same brand, yes the same 45mm rotary cutter but what it does not come with a nice soft gripped handle nor the easier snap out blade replacement option. 195240-1001 vs 195210-1001 Read the model numbers very carefully before purchasing.

I purchased this item and got something else in the mail. I suppose it's my fault for not reading carefully enough. The item pictured in the listing is not what you get. I guess that's a more expensive one with a soft grip. My picture is the one that came. It's an okay cutter. Way better than scissors. But I'm very disappointed as I thought I was getting something else. This is a picture of what I received.

Im a Tshirt cutter, I had seen a fellow cutter using one of these and it was awesome. It only took one pass to cut through, and hers was such a clean cut it saved an enormous amount of clean up! So after reading all the raving reviews I went for this one. Goodgrief, either I got the worst dud ever made, or one heck of a lot of you folks are off your rocker! Mine is so dull it won't cut through a simple Tshirt without having to go over it again and again, thus shredding the edges. And there's No way I could do even a shirt having to use that much force. Im so disappointed to have gone through the whole ordering process for something that doesn't even cut as good as my old junk drawer sissors, I can't imagine others liking the product.

Now, I love writing great reviews, but this thing will cost you nothing but, money, time, and hassle, dumping you off smack dab in the middle of disappointment!

I bought this rotary cutter to cut fabric on a Dahle cutting mat. The handle feels ergonomic in my small hands and comfortable to hold and use, even though it’s all hard plastic and nothing fancy. I like that you can use the hand guard to hang it up when it’s not in use.
The 45 milimeter blade that comes with the cutter is very sharp, and cuts through fabrics like butter. I’ve tried it on spandex and even tougher materials like 20 gauge vinyl and cotton canvas, all without any problems. The blade extender is on the top of the unit, where your thumb naturally rests when holding the cutter, and locks into the extended cutter position with a sturdy click. The blade comes configured for a right-handed user, but if you’re a lefty, it’s easy to unscrew the blade and put it on the other side of the cutter.
The blade retracter is the only thing about this cutter that’s not so ambidextrous – if you’re a righty, it feels very natural to press it with your thumb. But if you hold the cutter in your left hand, your thumb has to cross over to hit the retract button, which feels kind of awkward.

If you’re right-handed (like most of us), this is definitely a good rotary cutter to start with, but if you’re left-handed, you may want to spend some more time searching for a more lefty-friendly design.

The blade went unusably dull after a couple hours of use on single thickness fabric with a self-healing mat underneath. The cutter came with only one blade so I would have to order a pack of replacement blades @ $15.00 for 5. Given the way the first one went dull, it would take several of these replacement packs to cut all of the pieces necessary to complete this quilt.
If you already have a pair of good fabric scissors and a straight edge, I would advise you to think twice before investing $40 that you may regret - Cutter $13, self-healing mat $12 and 5-blade cutter pack $15. The scissors that I have used for 30 years will not fail to cut up all of these quilt pieces.

Update: I tried this again after getting the titanium blades [2 for $9]. I simply cannot cut as straight with the scissors as I can with this rotary cutter. I treat the blade with great care so I do not accidentally ding it and make it dull as quickly as the first one. I would give 5 stars if the original blade had not proved to be so disappointing.

Its hard to know w/this type of stuff unless someone gives you advice on a brand they love or dislike. Products seem similar when you look and often prices vary so hard to tell. This one appeared to be a basic item. I have used a few times and pieces popped off. I WAS able to put them back together so I would not be accurate to call this "breaking" b/c it is not broken. pieces are intact and item works but have to keep putting it back together. I know the item is designed to come apart to switch the blade so perhaps its not made as secure to stay on. for an item that has a blade involved that can cause injury, this is not a good thing. however I use this carefully, and am not letting any children or teens use this product. The next time I pop in to a fabric store I may ask advise and get a new one. in the mean time, this does do the job and works.

I'm pretty new to fabric cutting so I don't really have anything to compare this too. My primary reason for buying this is to cut up t shirts and customize the length of jeans. The unit feels good and sturdy, fits my hand and is pretty straightforward. The enclosed blade tho is pretty weak. I was taking up a pair of jeans one leg at a time and you just can't get this thing through the inner and outer seams. I was literally sawing back an forth with it. The flat denim was a breeze and it cuts thru tshirts like butter but again it won't go thru the seams if I'm cutting off the neck of a shirt. One thing I'll add is that it tends to push fabric away from you which really really messes up a clean cutting line. I'm putting good even pressure and cutting on a self healing mat. I'll buy replacement blades and see how I get on. Maybe they just send these out with dull blades to encourage you to buy a replacement set.
