    Hi. just wondering whats everyone's opinon about sharping blades. I saw this on (quilt in a day)site, about the sharping tools at $39 called True Cut Rotary Blade Sharpener.

    Worth it or not. new blades here to buy are about $10 or more a blade.

    I use it and am very pleased with it. Took a couple of times to get on to it, but it works. Won't remove nicks and you need to sharpen before the blade is totally dull. I just sharpen all my blades every so often. (I have multiple rotary cutters.)

    Anyone tried the new electric sharpener? According to the video it will take out nics.

    Scroll down & click on the video icon:

    I think it's the same one on the GraceFrame site:
