Default Safety rotary cutter?

Is there a decent quality rotary cutter out there that requires you to hold a button or handle down to keep the blade exposed? So that when you aren't using it the blade hides again automatically?

I have only ever used a standard fiskars cutter...

Thanks!

I think Fiskars makes one that when you start rolling it brings the blade out, and then goes back in when finished.

I've used this one for years. love it. it closes the blade automatically when i let go of the handle. it can be kept open by pushing the red button but i never do that.

Dritz - it's all I ever use, even though I have others.

The one in Bernie's post is the only one I use. If I drop it, the blade retracts before it can hit me.

I have one that the blade comes down when I apply pressure, and goes back in when I left. Not sure of the brand. I have had it for years.

i have a red and white fons and porter rotary cutter that i bought at tues morning thats made like that you have to be pressing it down on something for the blade to come out i thought it might be a nice spare cutter. as i misplace my stuff all the time i have duplicates of lots of my tools. i go to my mil to sew alot as she has a house dedicated to just sewing so we can just leave it if we want to and it will be right there the next time we sew. i also sew alot at home so i drag alot of stuff back and forth.
