I searched everywhere to find a rotary cutter that I didn't have to click and lock into place. In my experience, I have found that they don't cut as well. You do need to use more pressure while using this type of cutter, so keep that in mind!
I have many cutting rulers which you must use in most scrapbooking projects. I make a lot of cards and the rotary cutter is perfect for smaller jobs. NOTE. You have to use a metal edged ruler with the cutter since it could bite into a wooden one. The cutter is great for 5" or 7" strips that I use on cards. I also got the Victorian blade which adds that little umph to projects. I would highly recommend this tool.

This was VERY sharp when I first got it made clean lines etc. My son got a hold of my office and cut his hand with just a quick touch to the blade. After a few uses of harder fabric it doesn't make smooth cuts anymore, you have to keep going over the same spot then your line is messed up...I still prefer to use scissors.
this is my first purchase of this type of cutter so I don't have anything to compare it to. For what I saw at retail stores it seemed very similar to others out there. It was also very reasonably priced. I used it for cutting felt and other fabric and it was a success!
I was leary of this because of the low cost. It is plastic handle and "carriage" but is very sturdy. Works wonderfully and takes any brand replacement blade so long as you get the right size.I was pleased with the size of the handle, doesn't cramp my hand up. I would highly recommend this item to someone who does a fair amount of cutting and sewing. I don't think it would be feasible for a full time quilter or cutter.
