There are several different types of blades and cutters, all commonly used for different purposes. Usually, each blade type is a poor substitute for another. This may have something to do with their different blade quality or design. There are exceptions and examples of multi-purpose blades here and there. You should note that when it comes to multi-purpose, versatile blades, you really can’t do better than this rotary cutter. Where most cutting appliances have just one blade or at most two, this cutter has five blades! So its high efficiency and versatility should come as no surprise.
This roller cutter can be used by dressmakers to cut fabrics and by quilters as a quilting cutting tool. It can also be employed in cutting paper, cardboard, vinyl, leather, tarp, upholstery, fleece, felt, and even plastic!
