    Well to tell the truth I have a fisker cutter but I found out that the olfa blades last longer so I use a fisker handle on a olfa blade.... kellie

    Olfa has to be my favorite. Their blades seem to cut better and stay sharper. As far as scissors, I'm in the market for a better pair, for now I'm using fiskars brand.

    I usually stick with the medium priced one. I have tried the cheapest things since money was so tight, but found out soon enough that having to replace the items frequently isn't saving me any money. Fiskars seems to be the medium price one now and they are everywhere so getting new blades and such...isn't a problem. I would like to try the higher priced items, but at the moment, money is my master and FIskars is doing just fine anyway.

    Olfa used to be my favorite. Now I'm kinda happy with my Accuquilt Go.

    I have some little scissors with pretty handles that I bought at a Ghingers (sp?) sale a couple of years ago. I love them for snipping all those threads.

    I love Gingher embroidery scissors, especially for ripping out. I ask for a new pair every Christmas. I bought an offset Fiskars rotary cutter 45mm and it doesn 't work well with my QuiltCut2 board you can't get all the way to the edge where the ruler attaches to the frame. So I like Olfa straight handle, the more the merrier, because I cut in several places in my house. I started marking the date I installed the new blades right on the handle, so I'm using the sharpest knife in the drawer for my latest projects!
