    I have purchased two packs, one all dull, second a few dull, but the ones that were sharp didn't stay sharp long. I'll just stick with the regular Olfa blades and use my Joann's coupon.

    Is this a "here we go again" post?

    Harbor Freight has a RETURN/MONEY BACK POLICY. Please use it and let us know that they were good for their word.
    Not all Harbor Freight stores have bad blades. I have bought and sold more than 100 packages and never had any complaints. Give them a FAIR shake!

    I use them all the time, never had a problem. There is more than one blade in the pkg. Sometimes they stick together. Make sure you only have one in your cutter.

    My first thought was that you put both blades in the cutter. There are 2 in a package and sometimes they are stuck together. If that isn't the case, then do take them back... I have bought several packages and have found just one pack that was 'dull', still cut, but not clean. Just changed it out. More gas to make a special trip back to exchange than to open a new package. That one cut paper just fine. Good luck and don't give up on them....

    I've bought the Harbor Freight blades and have never had any trouble with them. I gave one to a quilter friend of mine, over 6 months ago, and she's never had any problems with them either. I have read and heard that the June Tailor cutting mat will dull the blades. This is the cutting mat NOT the June Tailor Shape Cut Ruler.

    If anyone has a problem with the HF blades then they should return them, because if there's a problem and no one returns them or complains about them, how is HF supposed to know and to correct the problem?

    I have used them and never had a problem with them. I introduced them to a friend and she loves them too. It sure saves money if they work.
