    What do you think of them. They don't seem that sharp to me?Right from the "get go" I had to press harder than usual and many times I have to go over and over to get fabric completely cut. Am I the only who has had trouble?

    I have been using them and I have had no problems. Mine cut the fabric like as if it was butter.

    My experience is the same as yours. I had to saw back and forth for them to cut.

    Ditto here!

    I've been very pleased with the blades I've purchased.

    Might I make a comment, to please be sure to clean all of your cutter and the blades from the oil they come packaged in. Also try to turn the blade around to see if there is a difference.

    I agree with cjomomma. I just now bought some after hearing so much about them. So far so good. Marilyn
