The New Olfa Splash Cutter

Have you seen the new Olfa Splash {pretty aqua} Rotary Cutter???    I've been seeing them all around blog land in the last couple of months... 

I assumed they were uber popular because of the new pretty color... Well I was wrong... Well... they probably are pretty popular for their new color... BUT they're also popular because it is a seriously fantastic Rotary Cutter... 

Olfa Splash Cutter

I didn't know this cutter had a new QUICK BLADE CHANGE feature! And it is Awesome! Simply slide the blade-lock down to release the old blade, load the new blade, and re-secure the blade-lock. No buttons, washers, knobs, etc. etc. etc. to take off and try and remember which way they go back on!

And the handle is different... According to Olfa.."The vibrant aqua handle is contoured for comfortable cutting"... Truly... It is! This is the most light weight comfortable rotary cutter I've used...

So the new 45mm Splash Rotary Cutter from Olfa isn't just another pretty face...  And I'm really glad I now own one! 


If you just have to one for yourself... I found them on Amazon... 
And if you have Amazon Prime.. It's FREE Shipping!

I have seen these on different blogs but did not know about the blade release. That sounds like a nice feature. :0) The colors really are cute as well!! We do have prime ... heading to Amazon now. :0)

Cool. I need a few so that when I lose one in my sewing room I can use another to lose as well.

Very cool! I REALLY like the quick change feature, thanks for reviewing this! If you purchased on Amazon, did you review there too? If not, this would make a GREAT review on their site!

Thanks for the review! So glad to hear it's easy to change the blade. I'll see if they have the smaller size, too. And yeah, don't you love Amazon Prime???

I bought one of these cutters a few days ago at Joann's, I love it too. I did not know about the blade release feature, learned something new and helpful, thanks.
