  1. Looks great. Does it have replacement blades? I really like the small blades. But they never have replacement blades you can purchase.

  2. Looks like this would work great! However concerned there is no replacement blade information? Upon dulling is this considered a disposable product? Therefore one would want to get more than one to have another blade available? Or will they only make the replacements if there is enough interest?
    Would be great to see that information!

    1. The replacement blades will be available soon! It is not meant to be disposable, we just have not received the replacements yet and didn’t want you all to have to wait to get it in your hands! 🙂

  3. I know that much of the comments already ask the question about replacement blades, but I will add my two cents as well – replacement blades are a must! If this is a disposable product, the price-point is not very favorable. Please let us know. Thanks!

  4. Wow that is a fabulous tool to have. Must get one – especially now that I know there will be replacement blades soon. Hi from Australia Rob!

  5. I will pass this info along to my daughter. She has Epidermolysis Bullosa and as a result, her fingers/hands are fused into fists. Her arms and hands are wrapped in gauze dressings and she is able to use tools that are small enough to be secured by her dressings. The typical rotary cutters can’t be used by her, so I’ve done a lot of her fabric cutting. She has found a small cutter she can use, but I can’t wait for her to see this tool. She won’t have to wait for me to cut fabric for her – she’ll be a bit more independent with her cutting now!

  6. Hi Rob,I live in Cape Town,South Africa ,and would love to order your Shark Aplicator but for obvious shipping costs would like to get the blades as well,when will the blades be available .Many Thanks ,Theresa.

  7. Mine just came in today. After playing around with it a little, I can see it is going to be a GREAT addition to my quilting tool kit. I have to ask, is the blade suppose move like other rotary cutters. I tried loosening it but it does not seem to roll as I cut. I was only cutting through one layer of fabric so I was not pressing down very hard.

  8. I just used the Shark Applicutter on a “tree” applique pattern that I have cut many times with regular scissors. And the Shark was awesome! It reduced the cutting time by at least half, and it was so much easier because I could just lay the pattern down and cut — with precision! — and I didn’t have to worry about the material getting in the way as I was cutting. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this tool!

  9. I have been waiting months now for it to be in stock. Do you have more information when this will be available?

  10. great tool for when you are cutting appliques not already tacked down on your project – but what we need is a cutter like this, but with a protective foot at the bottom to put between your shirt (or whatever it is you are appliqueing on) and the excess fabric you want to remove after your tack down. It would work kind of like the Olfa chenille cutter, but much tinier and more precise. Invent it!!!
