    If you check out their videos, you can see it demonstrated online.

    This is the best on the market. You will LOVE it. I have severe carpal tunnel and have not had one bit of pain while using it-plan on buying a backup in Paducah.

    It's worth a try. It is so comfortable to use; conforms to your hand; I can cut all I need at once (then the back goes out)!!! Wish Martelli made something for bad backs.

    I too have arthritis and would like to get one. Unfortunately I have to wait until my husband gets back to work. I would also like to get the mat and slit ruler too. But they are expensive!!

    This sounds like it would be worth a whorl. I have arthritis and it may make cutting easier.

    Wow, what great stuff they have. Too bad I already have a bazillion cutters, rulers, templates and cutting mats.

    This cutter is supposed to be unique to any other cutter, I also have olfas and fiskars.

    I can tell by the video how unique and great it is. Really impressive, as is the "sticky" black ruler and the 2-sided/colored cutting mat. I really like all that stuff. I have to stick with what I already have for now, but I'm glad to know about the Martelli goodies.

    I have the mat, ruler, and the rotary cutter for both right and left hand. It was not cheap but I saved my money for a year to buy it at the Houston quilt show and have not regretted it one teeny tiny bit. :-) I love it all.

    Way to go, Myrna! I love the fact that products continue to evolve and improve for us, but I hate the fact that it makes much of what I own obsolete. Now I want a long-arm machine and I know just the one I want; that's definitely a pipe-dream!

    The mat, ruler, and 1 cutter hand of your choice ran me $200.00 at the quilt show. But straighter lines and much less frustration is worth every penny.

    I have noticed the rotary cutters in the lqs lately. If you are just wanting the cutter check out your lqs. They run abot 25-30 dollars if memory serves me correctly.
