Olfa Cutter History

Birth of OLFA cutter


In 1956 Mr.Y.Okada, the founder of OLFA CORPORATION, invented the world's first SNAP-OFF BLADE CUTTER.

The inspiration for this incredible idea came from breaking off segments of chocolate bars and analyzing the snap edges of broken glass. 

This unique invention has since become a worldwide best seller and is commonly referred to as an OLFA CUTTER.


WORLD’S FIRST SNAP-OFF BLADE CUTTER - 1956

Circular blade rotary cutter for fabric




Yoshio Okada also invented the world's first rotary cutter.

It revolutionized how people cut fabric by switching them from using scissors to rolling a circular blade over the material. 

OLFA's rotary cutters are used around the world today by quilters.


The OLFA Logo


The name of “OLFA” comes from two Japanese words, which, when translated, mean “to break a blade”.The OLFA parallelogram logo is taken from the shape of a snap-off blade.

Dispatched super quick, exactly as described. Will use again.

Karolina Zeringyte

Great rotary cutter. This is my first one, I love that beautiful sharp fabric edge that it leaves behind!

Alan Jones

Really good products, got my purchase the very next day with free P&P, will definitely by buying my spare blades & other bits from here now

Dorset Lady

Excellent Cutting mat. I now have two as I find that one is just not big enough for some of the larger sewing projects that I undertake and to have to move fabric about always distorts fabric.

I've used Olfa knives for quite some years now, but only recently discovered that I could order direcly from this website. I'm over the moon, like a kid in a sweetshop, I'll have to put the bank card in a safe space. There's a great variety of products on here, some I've tried and many more that I haven't. I've been 100% happy with any I've used. The design, build quality, and price are unbeatable. Postage wasn't super fast, but I'm not on the mainland, so no fault there at all. Right now I'm trying to justify the need for a retractable saw knife..... Highly recommend Olfacutters.co.uk

I guess I should see her though before I leave, and it would be good, though not essential, to pick up some things from the house. It might be interesting to arrive unann
