OLFA Revolutionizing the Way You Cut Materials

OLFA – To Break a Blade

OLFA Invented the First Snap-Off Blade & Rotary Cutters

In 1956 OLFA invented the world’s first Snap-Off Blade Cutter and 23 years later the world’s first rotary cutter. Innovating and perfecting the way you safely cut materials has been OLFA’s goal ever since 1956. OLFA’s expansive line of knives and hand cutters have been the choice of professionals for years across numerous industries.

The Snap-Off Blade Cutter was designed to be an economical, yet safe and efficient way to provide users with a knife that would always allow them to have a sharp blade to work with. This breakthrough revolutionized the way people cut materials and in turn, greatly improved the work efficiency at the same time. OLFA’s angle and length of their Snap-Off Blades eventually became so popular and efficient, they soon were the world’s standards. Today, Snap-Off Blade Cutters are used worldwide.

From the Front Lines of Metal Cutting

Just a few weeks ago an Air Force Base was preparing planes for destruction.  They were looking for a 9″ (229mm) angle grinder to remove depleted uranium counterweights from some transport planes in preparation for sending them to the scrap yard.  The current grinder did not have sufficient depth to cut out a 3″ (76mm) deep aluminum support bracket.  When our sales rep showed up with a 9″ M.K. Morse Metal Devil Saw he was met by a skeptical group of technicians.  They graciously allowed him to give it a try.  After 20 minutes of getting into full PPE gear (Tyvek suit, respirator, gloves, and fall protections) and being lifted 50 feet into the air, he was ready to cut.  With the right saw for the job, the cut took a lot less time than getting into the gear.  Record time as a matter of fact!
