Default Rotary blade tip.

Just found this tip whilst meandering around the quilting web. Must get something done now!

Interesting. And it makes sense.

This saves me a trip to Harbor Freight for now.

Thanks.

Cutting foil also sharpens your scissors. Professional sharpening is better but this will help.

This also applies to dull scissors. Thanks for the tip.

I tried that tip on scissors and it didn't help a bit!

It might work for you, for me it just made a mess and the blade wasn't any sharper.
