    Has anyone tried either the Martelli or Gingher rotary cutters?

    If so, what do/did you think of them?

    I gave away some of my cutters, and I think I gave away too many, now I'm looking to replace at least one of them.

    Can you use Olfa or Fiskar blades with them?

    Anything particular - as compared to Fiskars or Olfa?

    I recently purchased a Gingher Rotary Cutter. Love it.
    But, I was sewing a few weeks ago and my dog (lab and akita) was laying on the floor, he jumped up barking, I jumped and so did the rotary cutter and part of my finger. .. Just be careful.

    I hope you didn't do too much damage to yourself.

    Those cuts can take a while to heal up.

    I love my Martelli too. Much easier on the shoulders for me.
    However I have learned, after 4 years of use, that it is best to not use the Olfa blades in it. Buy Martelli blades for the cutter.

    I have the Martelli and like it. It does take a little practice to get used to the different position; however, it is much easier on the hands when you have a lot of cutting to do.
