    I agree with you...The blades dull very quickly....They seem thinner....

    I started to have problems then treated myself to a new cutting mat AND a 60mm Olfa cutter, no problems at all now. I would really recommend investing in the 60mm if you do a lot of cutting, which I do.

    Do blades have a front and back? How can you tell?

    I didn't know there was a front or back either, it seems odd as I do clean and change the blade over when I do so.
