    I bought 10 packs of 2 from Harbor Freight and I love 'em. No problems and I don't hesitate to give one away.

    I have had the same blade in my cutter for 18 months ( wrote the date on it) I sharpen it before each daily use. I learned that if I sharpen a sharp blade it never gets dull. I won't use a dull blade or one that skips. I use this sharpener: It works with any type or size rotary blade. When Hancocks Fabrics went out of business here I bought every package I could of the rotary blades at 75% off. I have enough blades to last me for years. When you see a good bargain buy all you can and never have to worry about the price going higher later.

    They're made for people who install carpet. I ordered mine on line but in store you have to search 'em out.

    Yes, I had a coupon & yes I bit the bullet & got a pk, but gonna change brands/size/something! when they're gone.
    Prices in stores for sewing anything, from fabrics,
    notions etc including magazines/books are simply out of site.They are going higher every day.This is getting ridiculous! Even the clerk said she can no longer afford to sew.
    I bought some at Joanne's and they were $35.99 for the 5 pack.........and had a 50% coupon so I did pretty good.

    I'm originally from Watertown, NY and was visiting my sister, she had to stop at Red Lobster for a GC and I waited in the car. Looking out the window, Whoa, a Harbor Freight store right next door!!!!. I had her go over, went inside, just in the door and an older gentleman asked if he could help me and I said I was looking for carpet blades. He said Oh, the Olfa blade, @ the corner he thought they were out but they had a hanger with @ 10 packs on it. I was like a litte kid in a candy store! I was pulling them off the hanger and a young man came over with an arm load of the blades, restocking, He said "the only people buying these are the ladies that quilt" Yeah!! $1.49 per 2 pack. I grinned all the way home! LOL Barb

    You can always look on ebay for the blades or get a rotary sharpener. I once bought a bunch of used blades that had been sharpened and they worked fine but were a bit oily when I got them
