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 bestseller and is commonly referred to as an OLFA CUTTER.
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.
