    My favorite is the Martelli rotary cutter. Easy to hold, easy to change the blade, and my hand doesn't cramp. I also broke down and bought the cutting mat, expensive but worth it.

    I agree - I resisted getting a Martelli Cutter - already had several Olfa's in different sizes and styles, a Fiskars and another brand given to me I haven't even opened - but got a Martelli for a friend with Carpal Tunnel problems. She raved about it. Shortly after, got tendonitis - went back and got a Martelli - its made left handed and right handed, is ergonomic, held differently, no price discounts, slight learning curve to use properly. It is a great investment - it is worth it to me - can cut longer without fatigue, prevents the tendonitis, has sharper and longer lasting blades I think when using their brand etc. No, I don't sell them or get a commission, lol.

    I like the Gingher weighted rotary cutter and their blades are teflon coated. For easy and fool proof blade changing, the new Olfa Quick Change Rotary Cutter is the easiest and it's a good cutter. I have the Martelli mat and but not the cutter. I've used one and it's very nice.

    do you have a picture of this cutter?
    Thanks


    I use a 45 mm olfa. But not the skinny straight handle. My handle is a little more ergonomic and curved.

    Same here. I bought mine about 6 or 7 years ago and still really like it!! I have shoulder problems and this cutter is much easier on a bad shoulder.

    I really like the martelli too. Although I haven't had to change the blade in it. they do seem to last longer than Olfa blades...
