    After reading about carpet cutter blades at arbor Freight, I made hubby take me out there.

    2 to a package and only $1.45 WOOHOO. I bought 10 packages before they discover quilters are using them and raise the price. They are super sharp. think they are made sharper as carpet is tough. Cut like going through butter.

    Girl in store said they will have to limit how many a person can buy at a time. They are dangerous. I looked at her and "I am 61 years old I know how to use a blade and one will cut someone just as well at 20."

    Always trying to take our bonuses away lol.

    That's just plain insane. Probably 80% of what we buy could be considered "dangerous". She must be the life of the party.

    Woo hoo! They're on back order now. Word gets around obviously! Maybe for once I'll accompany DH to Harbor Freight and stock up! He can buy me breakfast afterward!

    Thanks for letting us know they fit our ordinary rotary cutters. I like to change my blade often. Daily would be nice. Cheaper than arthritis meds for my elbow!

    I knew they could make those blades cheaper. I've used X'acto blades for 25+ years and they're not that pricey. It really surprised me about rotary cutter blades.

    I use these blades all the time. As a matter of fact I am the one who let everyone in on my discovery. :)

    They fit 45mm rotary cutters, I have a Fiskar's cutter.

    I have enough blades to last me a year now.
