    I also want!!!
    I just saw this yesterday in one of my new quilting mags. If the Gingher rotary cutter is as good as their scissors, it will be well worth the money.

    The lady at the quilt shop said it was ergonomically designed and she loved it enough to keep it at home. She mentioned also that she dreaded the purchase of new blades though, which as we all know is par for the course. :wink:

    I have two pair of their scissors and they are great, so this should be too.
    Didn't see any prices. Nancy :?

    Since it's a new product it will probably take time for wide distribution, but I did find this with a quick brouse of the net (I also saw a sight where they wanted about eighty bucks!):

    I found the gingher rotary cutter at Jo Ann's and used my coupon. It's a good cutter. I haven't used it enough yet to say whether I like it that much better than my olfa cutter that I love. The gingher is a 45mm and my olfa is 60mm. It's like comparing apples and tangerines!

    At that price...I'll be giving lots of hints to family & friends for gift ideas...and keeping my fingers crossed. Then I won't be able to afford the replacement blades...would you have to use gingher? I can't spend that much for a cutter!

    My mother as a Birthday/Quilting gift gave her good scissors to me. They were her old Ginghers, and though 17 years old are still sharp and reliable. Aside her love, I think I treasure this thoughtful gift as few others ever given me.

    I wonder if Joann's or A.C. Moore will carry these and they have coupons all the time.

    Gingher rotary cutter....it was only a matter of time, wasn't it? Maybe next time my quilt class makes a Gingher order, if it's on the order sheet...maybe.....!
    I don't see a difference in the photo, between their blades and regular rotary blades, so maybe you don't HAVE to replace them with Gingher brand blades. Guess we'll find out.
