    i bought a new one made by singer about 6 mo ago and its become my favorite it fits in my hand nice and comfortable. i never thought it could replace my olfa but it has. it came with titanium blades which lasted so much longer which was a nice surprise as well after i finish my stock ill be buying titanium blades as well. id recommend it highly they have lots of singer stuff at joanns but i noticed mine didnt have the cutter but i bought mine on ebay from a quilt shop i cant remember which one. the only problem i have with it is when we all get together to sew everyone wants to use it lol i think i need to pick up another one to leave at our quilt house for everyone to share.

    My 2 faves are olfa 60mm quick change, and gingher 45mm. I have an olfa 45mm ergonomic, but I like the gingher and quick change better

    I have over a dozen of different types, some not made anymore. The one I reach for the most is Olfa curved handle and Fons and Porter straight one. The F&P has a setting for how many layers of fabric you are cutting. The blade goes out more for six or more layers. I have one that fits on my finger to roll around small acrylic templates. I seldom use that one but it's interesting, don't even know if it's made anymore. I have the discontinued Fiskars ruler with rotary blade attached. It's nice for cutting wide strips. I don't care for the 60mm rotary cutters.
    Got fabric?
