~Notion of the week~

The Olfa Chenille Cutter

Yes, you can make your own chenille at home with this easy-to-use chenille cutter. The cutter has four "feet" serving as channel guides that create chenille in several styles of widths, from narrow to wide, for a variety of creations. Its premium-quality blade provides superior sharpness and durability. The cutter's ultra-sharp, double-honed circular blade does not rotate and has no exposed edges for your safety.

The cutter includes a dual-purpose dial:  Turning the dial to the left allows you to select from 4 different channel guide sizes, from 1/8" inch to 1/2" inch.  Turning the dial to the right allows you to slightly rotate the blade and expose a fresh cutting edge, which you can do 24 times per blade.
