I just noticed that Connecting Threads has the TrueCut My Comfort ruler!

 

Very tempting... As an ambidextrous cutter that needs to be careful with my wrists, I'm very interested in trying this out.

 

Has anyone else tried/bought this cutter?

Thanks Lana - well, I tried one on Saturday, but I'd need two as things need to be switched around for ambidextrous usage - don't ask for much, do I? lol...

At any rate, I found I had to press harder than with the Martelli cutters, so I'll probably stay with Martelli for now - mind you, that tru-cut ruler is very tempting, as I do tend to stray while cutting.

I have the Tru-Cut ruler, cutter, mats & sharpener.  I like them all.  Especially the non-slip mat that goes under the cutting mat.

Thanks Arlene - actually I have used and own both the left and right-handed Martelli 45mm (and do love them), but I keep having the clear plastic bit break - I might hold it funny or something, but Connecting Threads has been very good about replacing them. I'm hoping this might be better for my particular grip or method of use.

I don't have this particular one, but do have a similar looking one that is made by Martelli - in 45 and 60mm and prefer NOT to use anything else.  It is so much easier on my hand and wrist and that had been a real issue for me several years ago, not so much anymore thankfully.  Because the style is so similar I would think this one would work quite well.

Thanks Joanne :). I think I was playing with tessellation, I love it too!

LindaV, I have never used that cutter, but I just had to comment on your avatar: I LOVE it! It is one of the coolest avatars I have ever seen!

I haven't used that style. I will be great to hear if others have and what they think about it.
