Whatever is on sale. They all seem to cut about the same.

All I have bought on sale have been fine. I'm not loyal to one blade brand.

I prefer Olfa 45 mm.

I did have a blue Dritz rotary cutter that got terribly rusty.

Remember that not all blades fit all cutters. The Olfa has 3 notches in the center hole.

I like the Martelli. I cut straighter with its design.

I have Fiskers, Olfa, Dritz, Clover, and Quilter's Select rotary cutters. All blades even the generic ones fit all of them. I have lot of cutters in a basket and usually grab one when I need it. Seldom do i use one enough to dull the blade for very long time. My QS cutter is my favorite for cutting for a long period of time.

I have a lot of cutters and all my blades fit in them. My least favorite cutter is the Martelli. But blades seem all the same to me. I buy in bulk usually on Amazon.

I also buy in bulk Amazon. There doesn't appear to be much difference in life of blade and when new, they all seem to cut the same. There is just no way I can find anything good to say about Olfa Endurance Blades. My first blade truly lasted but everything since that first experience has been very dismal. 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've always thought the endurance blades were a waste of money. I had maybe 2 of them and they didn't last any longer imo.
