Default rotary blades - one more time

I'm on my last package of Fiskars blades that I purchased on Ebay (they were in mangled packages, but were about $1. per blade). I looked for more, but the good deals on brand names aren't there anymore. Has anyone tried any of the numerous "no-name" blades that are there now?

Premier blades from Amazon. 15 for $11.00. Really work well and last a long time.

Stay clear of Endurance Blades from Olfa. They simply do not hold up and since the company has never returned an email or correspondence from returned blades - it's clear it's a rip off situation.

I have not been happy with blades from Harbor Freight.

I have some by Martelli and I'm quite happy with them.

Never had a problem with Olfa Endurance blades. I have a lot of them from various subscription boxes. I also like the Premier Blades from Amazon. I bought the 15 pack for our community service group and no one had any complaints at all.

I use regular Olfa's. Have never had a problem with them. I buy them in a multi-pack when I have a good coupon for Joann's or through Amazon. Right now, a 10 pack of 45mm is $34 from Amazon.

I've ordered these from Amazon; less than a buck each; I've had no issues with them so far. The best price I've been able to find (so far).

I tried some kind of blades on a recommendation from this board. They were cheaper but my old Fiskar blades cut better than they did.

Now I only buy Fiskar blades from Walmart.

Was not impressed with blades called Improved Cut.. Went dull after a few jobs. Not happy with cheapo ones from Harbor Freight either. Am about to test a new-to-me brand called R&J.

Iíve always been pleased with regular Olfa blades.
