New in - rotary blade sharpeners and Olfa chenille cutter!

Have you ever bought a brand new blade for your rotary cutter then dropped it the same day you put it on the cutter? This is one of my pet hates, as it always seems to happen and then cutting is made a nightmare by the little dull spots on the blade! With our new rotary cutting blade sharpeners you can get rid of dull spots and burrs easily, as well as prolonging the life of the blade - just rotate the blade in the tool, first on the rough side then the smooth side, and a razor sharp edge is soon restored. Having tried this yesterday, I can confirm it works, although as noted on the packet, the first time you sharpen a blade takes a bit more time and effort than the subsequent sharpenings.
We have 28mm rotary blade sharpeners and 45mm rotary blade sharpeners in stock now, and they are sure to be a good investment if you do a lot of rotary cutting!

Also brand new to the website is the Olfa chenille cutter, as well as the chenille cutter spare blades. Use the Olfa chenille cutter to make your own chenille quilts, cutting multiple layers of fabric, felt fleece and more! The cutter has 4 different guide sizes for precise cutting from narrow to wide width, and the special disc blade provides 24 new sharp cutting edges. It is suitable for left or right handed use, and comes with a handy carrying and storage case and full instructions.
