    I finally got a hold of some of these blades. I'm excited to try them. I bought all of their stock. Hope I like them! For $1.99 a pack, less my 20 percent coupon, I feel I got a bargain! Anyone out there using these carpet cutting turned fabric cutting blades??

    I have a stash too.
    Just recently put one in; cuts well and the price is right.
    I'm waiting to see if they last any longer than my olfas and others.

    I have some and they've worked fine but right now I'm really mad at Harbor Freight. I'd ordered 20 pkg back when they were $1.49 a package. Then I got a card in the mail saying that they were on backorder. Then I got another card saying that if I wanted to keep them on backorder to mail the card back in which I did. They cancelled my order anyway and now if I want them I have to pay $1.99 per package!!!

    you might have read it wrong. It did not tell me to send the card back

    I still have my card that they sent to me on the back-ordered blades. Mine states that if I mail the card back then I'm canceling my order. If they don't hear from me then I still want them even though it may take longer than 30 days to receive them which is the normal length of time as per the Federal Trade Commission Mail Order Rule. I had ordered 30 pkgs. and LOVE them even though several of the blades are defective(skip when cutting). I figure at the price I paid $1.49/set of 2 that's still a GREAT deal.

    I've got DH trained to look every time he goes into HF. He brought me home a couple packs the last time he was there.

    I am beginning to think that they may cut into the mat more then the Olfa blades.

    I would like to thank you VERY much for this tip. I picked up a pack to test out yesterday. I cut up six yards of fabric for a block swap and the blade was as good as new and I noticed no wear on my mat. I can't belive the price difference. 1 blade for a rotary cutter at the hobby stores is around $6. I picked up a two pack of rotary blades at HF for $2...awesome!!
