I love Olfa and have purchased them for years on Ebay and not had any trouble. Then early last year I purchased a pack of 10 on Amazon from a 3rd party seller. When I opened the blades in December, I could tell I had a pack of counterfeit blades. Every one of them was bad. I called Amazon knowing it was too late to get my money back, but I wanted to report the company selling them. Now I will purchase from a known seller and test right after I purchase.

I only buy Fiskar blades. Of course some blades cut more than others. I bought some blades with a recommendation from someone on here. They aren't worth a darm, my old blades cut as good as these new blades. So I just buy what works.

I cut fabric for the last 3 quilts with an endurance blade and it's still cutting really well, so I will be purchasing them from now on...well worth the money!!

I buy Olfa 45mm but only when I have a coupon for JoAnn's. I am the worst for changing my blades or maybe I am just cheap cause even on sale they seem a little pricey.

I sent repeated emails to OLFA and even mailed back dull blades that didn't last. I never heard a word from OLFA. Nothing. Needless to say, I go out of my way not to purchase blades from this company.
I completely agree. I purchased a pack of endurance blades and they started skipping just as quickly as the regular Olfas. Not worth the extra $$.
