    Do you know of any way these 45 mm blades can be sharpened? Do you know of any site where they can be purchased for a reasonable price? They get dull rather quickly (even the titanium ones) and they are pricey (at J,A.'s they're 16.99 a piece.).

    Alot of us buy our blades from Harbor Freight. For a package of 2 the cost is Between $1.49 and $1.99 and they are called Carpet Replacement Blades item # 97642 They're website is www.HarborFreight.com just in case you don't have a harbor freight near you.
    They fit 45 mm rotary cutters. And they are very sharp. :)

    Harbor Freight do not have the pinking blades. All I have found are the pricy ones. I'm no help in sharpening them either.:(

    the pinking blades are not (sharpen-able) what are you using yours for to dull it so quickly? i've had the same blade in one of my cutters for about 4 years- it's still pretty sharp.
    prehaps you should invest in a good pair of pinking shears---they can be sharpened and will last for many many years- i own my great grandmother's-and she passed away over 50 years ago. they are great shears!

    Do the Harbor Freight ones fit any rotary cutter? I have a Fiskars and an Olfa. That is a really good price if they do.
