    Has anyone used a Martenlli Rotary Cutter. If so what did you think about it.

    I purchased one, I really like it. The blade cover is designed so that you may close it immediately after your cut with the flick of one finger.... has a nice grip and they come in left or right handed versions... Their customer service is awesome too!

    I love, love, love mine. Really helps if you are cutting lots of fabric. I like the closing cover also, so the blade is never exposed.

    I wore mine out. The spring broke on it, and I'm using it taped. Not good, I know, but I can't afford a new one. They're too expensive for me. But, I do really like it.

    I did look at these. But I work right or left handed depending on how I feel so I felt having to buy 2 was too expensive.
    I have been known to put blades in for right handed and then use it left handed. Can't do with these.

    I got one years ago. I really liked it.

    However, I can no longer use it because of the pressure on my hands and fingers. I found I needed a finger on it to use it well and that is no longer a realistic option. Darn!
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    I have one but could not get used to using it. I'm going to try it again because I have a lot of scraps to cut up and it's supposed to help with the carpal tunnel.
    Lots of people like them, but some just can;t get used to it.

    I have one and found no great advantage to using it. I like the 60mm Olfa rotary cutter the best.

    I have arthritis in my hands and neck.

    love it! I get the least fatigue if I alternate using the Martelli and a fiskar's
