OLFA 60mm Endurance Blade {Giveaway}

I don’t know about you, but I was curious about the OLFA 45mm Endurance blade when it was released last March, but I use a 60mm rotary cutter, so it was mostly just a blip on my radar. I saw people discussing how it worked for them, and I was hopeful that OLFA might extend their product offering to include a 60mm Endurance blade.

Clearly, I am not the only one that was waiting, and I am thrilled to say that the 60mm Endurance blade is pretty darn amazing. OLFA has generously provided me with a 60mm Endurance blade to try and allowed me to give away (2) 60mm Endurance blades; one giveaway will be in association with this blog post (see below) and the second will be given away through my Quilting Jetgirl Instagram account, so be sure to enter in both locations!

My nerdy engineering side really wants to know the differences in alloy between the standard tungsten blades and the endurance blades, but it is a proprietary metal chemistry. The bottom line is: does the Endurance blade really last twice as long?

I have been using the 60mm Endurance blade for one month, and I have to say that I am impressed. I normally have a note on my Quilter’s Planner at the beginning of each month to remind me to dust and oil my sewing machine (if I have not recently) and change my rotary blade. I have no reason to change my blade after one month of use (which is longer than I would use a normal blade), and it is still cutting fabric without any skips or requiring extra pressure.

As far as use during the last month goes, I did a LOT of fabric cutting using the Endurance blade when I created the improv piecing for my Murrina quilt. Improv is quite an intensive cutting process… at least for me, anyway! I also made a mini mini quilt and finished a secret sewing project that is a large lap size quilt along with 2 pillows. That’s a lot of fabric cutting, so I am quite impressed with how the blade edge is holding up.

Do you use a 60mm OLFA rotary cutter like me? I really like the light pressure it takes and how many layers of fabric I can cut with ease using the larger 60mm rotary cutter.

    Hi there Yvonne,
    I bought my Olfa 60mm ergo cutter about 2 years ago and LOVE IT!!! I still use my 45mm & 28mm…usually for fussy cutting and FPP. I’ve been dying to try out the new Endurance blade!
    Thanks & Quilty Huggs!
    PS…Love your improv blocks!

  2. I use the 45 mm one, and it does cut like a dream. I’ve been using it for some months now and it still seems to be sharp. I’ll have to look at the larger wheel, thanks for the review.

  3. Kim Palchikoff says:

    I use mine all the time! It is perfect for cutting multiple layers of fabric and trimming quilted projects.

  4. Terri C says:

    I have started using the 60mm for almost all of my cutting of quilts. I make t-shirt quilts for customers and go through a lot of blades! Would love to try this

  5. Kathryn Laposata says:

    I don’t have a 60 MM cutter, only a 45 MM. I’d love to try the larger one though.

  6. Lori Morton says:

    I use my 45 most..but lately have needed the 60 more often! lol Have used the 28 only a few times. The 60 is my very fave one lately… would love to win new blade for it! 🙂 Thank you for the chance 😀

  7. sharon says:

    I always seem to need a new blade even hours after changing one– i would love to see if this blade is better

  8. Anita says:

    I would love to try the 60mm rotary cutter and the new endurance blade.

  9. I seem to reach for the 45 mm rotary cutter and use the 60 mm occasionally. Maybe, I need to keep it within sight and not in the drawer.

  10. Christi says:

    60 mm is not my standard but I do use them when I have a lot of layers.

  11. Jeri Niksich says:

    I’m curious also about the Endurance blades, if they really last longer and are they really worth the extra money? Your the only blog that I’ve seen do a review about them.

  12. joansigna says:

    Our charity quilting group has been talking about getting this blade, so would love to try for them and me.

  13. I’ve only ever used a 45mm cutter (and one of the smaller ones once at a class recently). I can see how they’d be great for cutting lots of layers and yardage.

  14. Danette says:

    I mostly use a 45mm rotary cutter. I’ll have to purchase the 60mm and use if for cutting yardage.

  15. goonyburd says:

    It depends on what I’m cutting, but I love the 60!

  16. perfect for my sewing crafts. Would use on my fabrics I sew.

  17. cherriberi1 says:

    My rotary cutter needs a new blade right now! I would love to try the new blade!

  18. cherriberi1 says:

    The 60 mm is my go-to cutter.

  19. Cherri Kincaid says:

    The 60mm is my go to and it needs a new blade now!

  20. Janet T says:

    I like the 60mm better, as it is an easier, lighter cut.

  21. I will definitely try these the next time I purchase. I am was so used to having easier access to blades, and this will be a bonus. I have 3 45 mm cutters, and no 60mm rotary cutters, so I guess I prefer 45. I have used the 60 and like it, so maybe I ought to rethink….

  22. jrp53 says:

    I always forget to buy replacement blades! Maybe I can win one!

  23. Pam Kosirog says:

    I have not tried the Olfa endurance blade yet but I would love to win one and give it a try!

  24. Paula says:

    I only use my 60m now since my 45m is dead. Olfa is my go-to brand, always

  25. I never thought about it and just keep using my splash 45. Now you have me interested and I need to look into a 60. Hummm.

  26. Quilting Tangent says:

    Only have 45, willing to try bigger.

  27. Darrell says:

    My main rotary cutter is 45mm as well. I have never used the 60mm size. But It can be my next cutter.

  28. Rita Long says:

    Just recently I started using the 60 mm for my main cutter.

  29. nancyangerer says:

    I may use the 45 move, but I do use the 60.

  30. Rochelle says:

    I mostly use the 45 MM because it has the ergonomic handle. I find when I cut with the 60 MM I tend to curve off track and have some waste. But there are times when only a 60 MM wil do.

  31. Vicki H says:

    I use the 60mm cutter when I cut multiple layers, and do trimming with my 45mm.

  32. Sandy K says:

    I don’t have a 60mm yet. Comments from others has me needing to go shopping for one.

  33. I love my 60 mm cutter. Use it for most things

  34. stichnnurse says:

    I use my 60 for heavier cutting or batting.

  35. Olfa 60mm rotary cutter is my go-to size, but I also use the 45mm and smaller. I am anxious to try the endurance blades. I also have my eye on that Aqua cutting mat, nice! Thanks Yvonne and Olfa for the giveaway!

  36. davemelvanolan says:

    I have both sizes but prefer the 60mm cutter. It is just more comfortable in my hand. Thanks for the chance to win!

  37. I only use my 60 mm rotary cutter occasionally, since I mostly use my 45 mm. Thanks for the chance to win an endurance blade.

  38. Patty Weis says:

    I usually use a 45mm cutter if I’m not doing a lot of cutting, but love the 60mm when cutting more than one layer.

  39. EllenB says:

    I don’t use a 60mm very often, but I’m impressed with the 45mm Endurance blade.

  40. Sandy K says:

    I would enjoy using the 60mm cuter, I do like them for when I am cutting a few layers.

  41. Karen Hootman says:

    I definitely want to try them.

  42. Kathy Cummings says:

    With this blade, I would use it most of the time!! Thank you!!

  43. Cocoa Quilts says:

    I use a 45 normally, but have been thinking of picking up a 50

  44. Colleen says:

    I entered you give away, the 45 is my usual blade size. I do have the 60 but I have to say I fear it so I only use it when I am feeling especially alert.
    I have learned to stop sewing/cutting when I am tired as I make too many mistakes
    I have not cut myself …. yet I hope I will never cut myself but I do fear that

  45. Joanne H says:

    Even though I generally use a 60mm cutter, I tried the 45mm blade when it first came out and I was quite impressed. Of course I had to justify trying the 45mm blade by saying that I knew students would ask me about it, and I was correct. I agree with you and your findings. I was happy to recommend the cutter and am a happy girl, knowing that there is now a 60mm blade. By the way, I love the Murrina – Improv blocks. 🙂

  46. Janine Allen says:

    I love the 60 mm blade and use it most of the time.

  47. Kathleen Dalecio says:

    I had a 65 mm blade for a while. I really liked it but a piece has gone missing and I been using the less expensive 45mm for a long time. I would love to get a ne 60 mm cutter with the awesome Endurance blades! That would be my dream cutter for yardage!

  48. Liz Wilson says:

    Hi, i enjoyed reading your blog. Very interesting.
    I am subscribing.

  49. Lee says:

    I use a 45mm but would love to try this one! Thanks!

  50. Julie Anne says:

    Thank you for the blade recommendation. Please put me in the drawing.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
