The Olfa XA-1 knife features a slightly larger, more ergonomic handle with soft rubber inlays for increased comfort. This knife would be a terrific alternative to the slimmer knives for someone with larger hands or anyone suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome.
**Please note that this knife comes with non-stainless blades in the packaging. DO NOT use these blades for cutting and trimming on glass as they will leave scratches. Use a stainless steel blade for any cutting on a glass surface as they are less likely to scratch or cut the glass.**
