Blades of Osaka

9. December 2010

Due to the fact, that yesterday I got a new cutter (I lose mine every half a year), I was researching a bit about the heritage of my ‘first choice’ cutting knives, charming named as Olfa cutters.
What I didn’t know about Olfa, is that they invented the break-off-the-blade system, and hey, it was inspired by a chocolate bar. So, if you like cutting and crafting, check out the Olfa site for some background information about the history of their knives, I think they do it in a really pleasant way. (Where does the name Olfa come from, and why are their knives yellow?)
