    They don't work well for me. I must have a bad batch. They've all gone dull or skippy after just a few cuts (or in one case, no cuts at all).

    YEP!!! They are GREAT!! And even with shipping & everything (I had to order over the website because my local HF store can't get them fast enough) they are only about $1.50 a blade.

    They work fine except once in a while there will be a bad one in the package. For the price, I can't complain.

    so far, I have had good luck with these blades...they may dull a tiny bit faster, but not by much.

    I've been using them for quitea while. I think they are well worth the price ...2 in a pack for 2 dollars. sometimes they are on ale for 1.49. I feel they are sharper and last longer and when they start to skip I do not think twice about poppin another in, whereas with the brand name expensive one . I will struggle until I am close to tearing my hair out. we all like to save $$.
