    Darn just bought a new olfa and 10 blades but will try the Ginghers when I run out which won't take me that long. Mine seem to get dull awfully fast.

    I just bought a second Gingher rotary cutter; the blade on the first was silver, the one on the new one is black. Wonder why they switched?

    I just went to the Gingher website, all new blades are now black and they are calling them "Non stick" I am guessing some sort of teflon coating.......never knew I could send my scissors directly to Gingher for sharpening....they charge $7.50 for any of THEIR scissors, be it pinking or snips.....

    Gingher blades are superior to most rotary blade. I learned to take extra care when I started using Gingher blades, they cost more then the other blades so I made myself be more careful how I treated them. No more slivers off the ruler and making sure there was no pins at all under the fabric. LOL. I bought five at a time and still have three left from my first order. Dated 2003. Good stuff lasts with care.
    Got fabric?

    I once did some volunteer sewing at a group where the "bossy" quilter had brought a cutting mat that was some kind of clear semi-hard plastic. She insisted everything be rotary cut on it and I watched a brand new fiskar blade go dull in a matter of 10 cuts. I'm wondering how many of us who find our blades aren't lasting well, actually have a problem with the mat underneath? Needless to say, she disgusted me and I quietly left. Meanwhile, nothing anyone cuts there is straight or on grain...imagine!

    Thanks for the information about sharpening! I too like the blades but have not gotten used to the cutter - still it was a good investment - with a 50% off coupon.

    I've had the same experience with Martelli blades.

    From what you are saying, these blades fit other rotary cutters. The ones I have are Olfa & I would like to try these blades but want to make sure they fit. Please confirm. Thank you.
