I know what you mean about Gingher cutters. My favorite scissors is a Gingher that I bought when I bought my sewing machine (1975). The only time I have had to have them sharpened was when my daughter used them to cut artificial flowers. I also have the little black snippers. I didn't really even look at the rotary cutters because I am very happy with my Martinelli ones as primary with my Fiskars as secondary. (When cutters/scissors go on clearance, I tend to buy them...so I have many. For some reason I really like them.

I paid $35, which wasn't too awfully bad. Gingher makes really excellent products, and I expect to have the cutter around forever. I have an ancient pair of Gingher dressmaker scissors that are still going strong. I maintain them pretty well, and they've never balked at a job.
I also have a number of other brands of rotary cutters and scissors that do OK. I like Fiskars, for instance. But certain brands just don't hold up as well, and some can't even be sharpened back to their prime. I use them for classes and trips, mainly because if I lose them, I don't mind so much. :-)

How much are they now? When I worked at JoAnn's they were $70. Even at 50% off, that's a lot of money!

I have the Gingher cutter & love it! It cuts like a dream with very little pressure & I haven't worn out a blade yet. I've nicknamed her "Ginger" because that's what I see when I glance at the cover of the box she lives in when not in use!
