Originally designed to make cutting applique pieces faster, you'll love using the Man Sewing Shark Applicutter for all of your curved cutting! Applique pieces are cut quickly and easily with the tiny 14mm blade on the Applicutter. The soft grip makes it easy to hold, the design is easy to pivot, and the handy "shark fin" keeps your fingers from getting too close to the blade. The Applicutter is designed for both right-handed and left-handed quilters. When you're done with the blade, snap the cover in place. The back of the Applicutter has a Hera Marker that you can use to mark the placement of your applique pieces, or mark the quilting on your quilt. An awesome multi-purpose tool!
