Olfa | Goods Japan Shop


In 1956 Mr.Y.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.

The snap-off blade cutter was conceived as an economical, safe, efficient cutter knife and are made with top quality materials, forged with technologies that stem from traditional sword-making, sharpened with technologies that give a blade life, and ultimately finished with the craftsmanship that brings all of this together.

The holders and handles that allow users to gain the full cutting performance of these high quality blades are designed, developed and manufactured in Japan and subjected to stringent quality checks throughout the process.
