OLFA Endurance Blade & Giveaway!!!

It's no secret that I am an OLFA girl ;)   My mother taught me how to cut out quilts with an OLFA rotary cutter, so of course, when I bought my first rotary cutter it was an OLFA.  In fact, it was the cutter on the far right :)   And the dual sliding one is my current favorite because it is so much easier to teach my left-handed daughter how to cut with it!!!  So, as you can tell, they continue to be my favorite Rotary Cutters!!!  


So when I was asked by the wonderful folks at OLFA if I would like to try out the new 45MM Endurance Rotary Blade I was all over that!!!   And as you can imagine,  I did a little happy dance when this lovely package arrived at my door ;)


The OLFA Endurance Blade has a tungsten tool steel blade with proprietary metal chemistry that is designed to cut twice as long to extend time between blade changes.  Now I don't know much about tungsten steel or metal chemistry, but I do know about "Cut Twice as Long" !!!  And with my hand currently healing from surgery, I am all about blades that stay sharper, longer :)


So, I was super excited to pop it out of its packaging and give it a test run :)   And don't you just love the Quick Change feature of the OLFA cutters.  So easy and fast!!!


And boy did I give it a test run!!!  Remember all of those strips I cut back here . . . well they all needed to be sub-cut and then, I ran out of strips and needed to cut some additional piles of strips.   So ya, there was a whole lot of string cutting going on!!!


And I was having so much fun, I didn't stop there.   You know how I just can't stop staring new projects right . . . Well I cut out another one.   I just love all of those happy polka-dots.


And the blade was so sharp, I figured why not rotary cut my Impressions Templates while I was at it.  Last time I cut these out I used scissors as I wasn't supposed to be Rotary Cutting that soon after surgery.  Wish I would have just gone with the sharp Rotary Cutter.  This was so much faster and didn't hurt my hand near as much as the scissors :)  Gotta love a sharp blade!!!


So ya, I gave the Endurance Blade  a pretty good work out for it's first day and I am super excited to keep on cutting twice as long before having to change the blade.   I know, I am crazy, but I really do love cutting out quilts (probably why I keep starting so many new projects ;)    And cutting them out with a super sharp blade just makes it all the more enjoyable!!!


So thank you so much OLFA for letting me try out the new blade as well as the 12” x 17” Folding
Cutting Mat and the Splash 45MM Rotary Cutter!!! You can find all three products at Jo-Ann
Fabric and Craft Stores, and fine quilt shops featuring OFLA products across the country.!!!  It was a whole lot of cutting fun!!!   Although, I am pretty sure I am going to need to order the Emperor Purple Splash now, because how cool would it be for my Rotary Cutter to match my purple walls ;)  

If you’re headed for Paduach, Kentucky for AQS QuiltWeek®, April 27 and 28, check out OLFA’s
pop-up trail tent to test out the new Endurance blade. QuiltWeek goers can participate in a special
project benefitting Quilt for Kids, a non-profit organization whose mission is transforming fabrics

  1. wow, that is a lot of cutting! take good care of your wrists!!! If I had to pick a colour .... I am not sure, I did rather like the traditional yellow! :) But having to pick a different colour, I would do a red. :)

    ReplyDelete
  2. maybe red and white? We really need those longer cutting blades.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I actually would want a white one! It would show up a lot better when I'm working with scrappy fabrics than my black one.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I plan on going to the quilt show in Paducah this year so will definitely check out their tent! I would love to see a rotary cutter in red, white and blue!

    ReplyDelete
  7. pink and purple flowers with maybe some butterflies all on white

    ReplyDelete
  8. If I could have a personally designed Olfa cutter, it would be some kind of saturated bright floral!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Thanks to you and Olga for the give-away. I'd love to try their new blade. If I could design a cutter, it would be red, my favorite color.

    ReplyDelete
  10. If I had to design my own rotary cutter it would definitely be purple. Probably with an accent color of either white or bright pink. I love the way Olfa cutters work, but I am not a big fan of yellow.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I would like a green rotary cutter, don't think that I have ever seen a green one. I would love to try the endurance blade, thanks!

  12. I've used yellow for so long my mind doesn't see other colors when I'm looking for my rotary cutter. It's a long process to retrain an old dog. I love the colors but I really hope they never stop making them in yellow. I might have a nervous breakdown hunting through my sewing room for that thing that is setting on my cutting board! Sharp blades longer, I'm all over that! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  13. I really like the blue, but would put a different color-like pink or white where the yellow is

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh.... I'm liking the aqua color a lot - with maybe grey or fuchsia accents!

    Wonderful cutters, for sure - I still have my original Olfas when they first came out!

  17. I love teal and red. What a great combo! I'd add flowers or swirls.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm thinking one that is luminescent or has a GSP in it so I can find them in all the fabric or maybe Safety Green like the construction workers wear nowadays And I still have my Olfa cutter I bought in 1983 at a quilt show!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I still have my original Olfa Ergonomic Rotary Cutter that I purchased when I started quilting in 1999! I love it ~ but a blade that lasts longer would be heaven. As green is my favorite color, I would choose green maybe with an abstract design in white. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Purple sounds good to me. I would absolutely love not having to change the blade so often. Thanks for the review.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yellow and orange. I still use the one like your original on the right hand side of your photo. But I recently slipped on it and my finger slid off onto the blade, so I should probably look at a different model. Olfa all the way!!!

    If I could choose my own cutter's colors I would choose red paired with cream or off-white.

    ReplyDelete

  110. as a leftie, I love my olfa cutters. I learned my lesson with changing out blades a few years ago when I sliced through my finger with a dull blade because I was pushing too hard. Now I always change my blades regularly!! If I could design any pattern, I'd probably make a red one with white polka dots or a paisley.

    ReplyDelete

  112. Seems a super cutter. I have two on the right of your first picture. If I may design the color it will be blue with white or yellow dots! Thanks for this give away. Conny

    ReplyDelete
  113. You really did a lot of cutting and I know about blades going dull. I was killing my hand when I realized I needed to change the blade, what a difference. Would love to have one that works twice as long. I like the yellow, guess I am used to it and easy to see under the pile of fabrics, maybe a glow in the dark one, lol.

  117. I would want my rotary cutter in a couple shades of pink. Red would be good too.

    ReplyDelete
  118. A few years ago over have some specialty cutters with floral patterns I really like those how about an orange one ??

    Good luck to everyone.
    I love the color of this 45m but if I had my own designer cutter
    I would had some red in it too. Maybe the big letters saying OLFA♥️
    45mm is my favorite size to us. The bigger ones scare me
    Thank you so much Melissa for this give away on your bloggie, and tons of thanks to Olfa

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  144. I would love a bright green rotary cutter! Thanks for the great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  145. I like the idea of having a longer last blade. It seems so sinful when you have to discard the old one. I'd like to have a cutter that is blue, in different shades of course. Thanks for the opportunity to win a new one.

  148. Loved to hear about the longer lasting blade - I'm like you - I LOVE cutting out new quilt projects and sometimes I feel I must have just changed the blade......so this is super good news. Blue is still my favorite color, but how about making blue or green or yellow gingham handles - I would love that :)!

  173. It would be great to match a designer like Tula Pink, Cotton & Steele or Alison Glass--something like the Bernina cover plate on their designer sewing machines. Thanks! tljeo at yahoo dot com

  174. I would say a fuchsia one, but I have a big one of those by Kai. I have several rotary cutters now, all sizes but a classic black/white print one would be nice.
