    Re: Are titanium rotary blades better?

    It’s actually a racist remark classing a whole countries population based on your experience, imagine if everyone based their opinions on all Americans based on its “presidents” behaviour ..........
    You might cause less offence by saying “I prefer to only by American made products”

      Agree the price of blades is steep. I have had terrible luck with any brand other than real Olfa blades, which are made in Japan, and I have never had problems with. The last set of off brand 45 mm blades I bought was a set of 5. Each one of them skipped right out of the package. Every single one. I finally gave up in disgust and only use them for trimming foundation paper piecing units since I am cutting on paper with that method. I'm back to Olfa. I recently picked up a Havel's cutter and replacement blade. Very sharp, and so far, it's lasting very very well. I too have become a sale shopper for blades.

          I've had good luck with the 45 mm blades from Japan, purchased at Amazon. I think it was a pkg. of 10 blades.

            The gift of titanium is it flexes and won’t break. I guess this is good for the sharp edge. This is probably a marketing thing that makes no difference. I know blades of yesteryear could rust. Titanium will not rust.
