    Wow indeed you did break it. I am glad you did not hurt yourself. I have never heard of this. You are strong.

    Sorry that happened to you. Glad you didn't get hurt also. I noticed several people here have been using the HF blades with success. I tried a package of those blades, however, both blades seemed to have bad places on them right out of the packaging on the first use. As if they had run over a pin or something, but they hadn't. Anyone else have this experience? I ended up disposing them out immediately.

    Why not send the information into olfa and see if they can explain why. It could have been a weakness in the blade and others in th pack you purchased may b the same .

    Glad you are unhurt .

    Wow, it looks as if you were lucky not to get hurt, thank goodness. Kind of scary.

    Wow, I've never seen that happen. I agree, you should send a picture to Olfa and see what they say. You are lucky that you weren't hurt.

    I've never had that happen to me and am sure glad that you didn't get hurt. I've got Harbor Freight blades too and no problem with them either.

    Showed this to my carpenter, builder husband. He said with a blade that thin that had been in use for awhile would do that if there was an infinitesimal twisting you wouldn't even realize at the right moment of rotation. Kind of a,"perfect storm cutting moment". Just one of those things not a fault in blade. An imperfection in the blade should have shown up sooner.
