    I didn't see a price on it but it does make sense.

    Just heard about this a few days ago. I must say I'm curious, but also a bit suspicious as to wether it would change your cut line at all.

    Yes, I've seen it advertised .. but wonder how long it will take for the litle sharpie thingies that sharpen the blade to wear off. Also, will the sharpening stuff make a difference in the size of the cut.

    I saw this at quilt market in May in Minneapolis. The cutter and the ruler both have titanium as their edging. should hold for a long time. Was told they were going to keep the prices low to get it into the retail market.

    So, will this work with any rotary blade? Or just theirs exclusively? I did notice the hole in the blade is the same as an Ofla cutter.

    The video says it works with any rotary cutter or mat, you just need the ruler fro sharpening.
