    Default Arthritis and rotary fabric cutter recommendations

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a rotary fabric cutting tool? I mean the sort of machine kind you slide the blade along the ruler, not just a hand rotary cutting blade.I'm looking at Fiskar's and Havel. Would love to have any input from your experience. I have rheumatoid arthritis in my hands and wrists and need something to make cutting easier.

    I do not have arthritis. However I noticed a huge improvement in my hand and wrist fatigue when I switched to the Martelli ergo rotary cutter. It takes much less pressure to cut.

    I absolutely recommend this tool. I've used it for years. Not only is it good for arthritis suffers, it is safe and accurate. Love it so much that I have a spare! They stopped making them years ago and then they came back on the market! https://www.amazon.com/Fiskars-Rotar...r+cutter+combo I see they now have a 12x12 one. https://www.amazon.com/Fiskars-Rotar...r+cutter+combo If Joannes sells it too....gotta love those coupons http://www.joann.com/6%E2%80%9Dx24%E.../12647178.html They have the 12x12 too.
