I have the blade. I don't know where I got it. I have never used it so don't know how well it works. Guess I'll have to try it today and let you know. BrendaK

​The are available but I have heard they are hard on your cutting mat. I don't have any experience with them myself as I use pinking shears instead. I think they make a wavy one too?

i have one marked pinking blade, but it is wavy. i agree with tartan, it is hard on your cutting mat. however, for my hands, it is much easier to use than pinking shears.

I use a 45mm pinking blade exclusively. I much prefer it as there are no threads all over the place. It is harder on your mat and you will have to replace it more often, but to me it's worth it. For more info and pictures, see this thread that I started on pinking blades: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...s-t164499.html.

I flip my board upside down and use the wrong side when I use various decorative rotary blades.

I have a pinking, scallop and a wave blade. I also have the blade that puts a needle hole in the fabric. DD gave me a pack of Olfa blades one year and it had every type of decorative blade in it. It was special packaging for a quilt shop promotion. I put each different blade in a cutter and have them labeled. I like to use them for raw edge applique.
