X – ACTO
For nearly a century, the name X-ACTO® has been synonymous with precision cutting. Since the early years when X-ACTO surgical blades were saving the lives of American soldiers, through today when you can find X-ACTO cutting tools and office supplies in art studios, homes, offices and classrooms across the country, X-ACTO has been the first choice when precision and quality matter.
OLFA® products manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters are located in Osaka, Japan. In 1956, Mr. Okada, the founder of OLFA Corporation, introduced the world’s first snap-off blade, which was inspired from analyzing the sharp cutting edge produced when glass is broken and how pieces of a chocolate bar break into segments. Since then, the demand for the snap-off blade has escalated worldwide.
