"The originator since 1956"

Birth of OLFA cutter

In 1956 Mr. Yoshio 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 best seller and is commonly referred to as an OLFA CUTTER.

 

1956 - World’s first snap-off blade cutter

 

1979 - World’s first rotary 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.

The OLFA logo

The name of “OLFA” comes from two Japanese words, which, when translated, mean “to break a blade”. The OLFA parallelogram logo is taken from the shape of a snap-off blade." - Olfa.com
