yellow, impact-resistant ABS plastic handle; notched (lock-in) feed mechanism, auto-lock blade positioner, stainless steel blade channel with locking screw, blade magazine with replacement blades in the handle for automatic reloading (up to 6 blades)
The Olfa cutter PL-1 is a sturdy, high-quality utility knife for professional use. This tool has the great heavy feel of a quality tool where you know its performance will not disappoint. The blade can be quickly removed and replaced with one hand because there is no loosening and tightening of the locking screw necessary. The easy-to-use feed mechanism locks the blade so securely in place that even when cutting really thick materials it will not budge. In cases where the material to be cut is particularly thick or tough, the locking screw which is located on the back side of the blade guide, can be employed as an extra measure of stability. The excellent stainless steel blade channel together with that additional possibility of securing the blade guarantees that it will be solidly fixed in place – which means very precise cuts.
The cartridge in the handle can hold up to six standard blades and enables you to make quick blade changes without having to remove your hand from your straight edge or from the material being cut. The used up blade must simply be removed from the front of the tool and the blade detent locking device for the automatic reloading simply pushed all the way to the back of the channel, allowing the next blade to rise into place – the housing of the cutter does not have to be opened at all.
Cutters with snap-off blades are not only indispensable tools in the realm of model making because their ever renewed and sharp blades can also make clean cuts through all sorts of other materials.
The larger cutters (for 18 mm blades) are best used for cutting thicker cardboards, plastic foils and films, thinner wood slats and mouldings, thin metal sheets or carpets. Cutters with 9 mm blades are usually used for cutting paper, cardboard or thin plastic foils or films.
You can only cut exact corners in a flat material if you make separate cuts for each leg of the corner (that means, for every rectangle, 8 separate cuts must be made). In order to make straight cuts, care must be taken that the cutter remains at the same angle during the entire path of the cut. The cut edges will be all the more smooth in direct proportion to how flat the blade is as it passes through the material. It is particularly important to have the blade as flat as possible when cutting KAPA or RIGID FOAM SHEETS, because these types of material will crumble fairly easily. It is in such cases that cutters with snap-off blades really display their worth because for these kind of cuts the blades can be pulled out of the handle to the appropriate length.
