The above link is for a really good review of the Omni Grid Rotary Cutter
- soft cushion handle
- safety lock
- left or right handed
- pressure sensitive
Will cut fabric, paper, leather, vinyl, matboard and even foamcore, in any direction.
The blade is protected by a safety guard. The safety guard slides back when pressure is applied, exposing the blade to cut through the materials. Once you lift the cutter from the surface the guard slides back into place, covering the blade and providing protection.
It is suggested that you always use a rotary cutting mat to protect not only your surface but your blade.
