    Which rotary cutter?

    I have a couple of different cutters but wondered if anyone has a specific recommendation for someone with arthritis. I have arthritis in my thumb and now my ring finger has developed trigger finger. I'm sure some cutters are easier to handle than others. Even with a new blade I find myself having problems because I don't think I press hard enough .

        I like my Olfa cutters. I have 2 of the Olfa 45 mm's and this is the one I like best. Has a good fit and easy to use.

          I agree with Pandabear. I love mine and have used it exclusively for years.

            When my hands are especially hurting, I really like TruCut. I use it with the special rulers that have little lips on it to keep the cutter from wandering off and cutting wonky.

            Yes, its expensive because you need their rulers but you can remove the little guide and use it with regular rulers too (I happen to like the special rulers-no more wonky cuts).

              I love my Olfa's but I also have arthritis and I'm considering getting the true cut with the lip on the ruler at least for my simple cutting. I can't replace all of my rulers lol as it would cost too much. So I will still use my Olfa's. The fiskars were too hard on my hands.
              Thank you,

                I have Martelli, several of them, which I love. I would never buy another brand again. They are ergonomic and very easy to use. The regular cutters were causing me all sorts of neck/shoulder/arm pain, and once I switched them out, it disappeared.

                  Thanks for the help. I watched the you tube videos from Martelli and ordered one. Can't wait to try it out.
