    I don't know why I always put off changing my blade. I have to press down harder and cut the places it didn't get the first time.

    Once I do change it, I tell myself I won't wait that long again, and I always seem to wait.

    Am I the only one that does this?

    sigh.............

    Yes, and I always try another rotary cutter just in case it is sharp and I can put off changing it another day...

    Since the blade dulls so slowly, it's hard to notice.

    Yes, me too. I finally broke down and bought a sharpener at JoAnn's fabric with a coupon. It's on sale now in fact for about 10.00. My husband has sharpened my blade several times and its great. I had heard mixed reviews about them but he seems to make it work just fine. Its almost like having a new blade.

    I do it too. I think I might be afraid of cutting myself.
