    Has anyone tried these? They are for carpet, but if they fit a rotary cutter they should work from fabric, especially heavier fabric. Sure a lot cheaper that buying Olfa, Fiskers, etc. If you have used them, did they work?

    Hi Anna - thanks for posting this. A few months ago, someone told us about these, and there was a nation-wide run on HF blades. They actually ran out of them, and many of us were told our orders wouldn't be filled for up to 2 months! I finally received my order of 10 packages in October! The blades are great - so far, the only rotary cutter I've found that they don't fit is Martelli. They are VERY sharp and last a lot longer than other blades.

    I just got these and put one into my cutter.......it is just fine, I can tell NO difference in it and the more expensive ones. It has already lasted for quite a few cuts (over several days, cutting a lot of pieces out right now). I am impressed with the price and I think its a great find! I have 3 different rotar cutters and it seems to fit all of them.

    I picked some up a month or so ago and maybe got a bad batch. It seems like after just a few cuts it's not cutting smoothly. I'll use them up but seems like I'll change them more often than the other well known brands.

    I think these are great, My Harbor Freight had them, was out for months, and this Saturday I was able to get 10 packs at $1.49 a pack. I'm glad I waited and didn't have to pay shipping!!

    Had heard about these and ordered some for myself. I have yet to use them. I am looking forward to it. For the price they can't be beat.
