    Pinking Rotary Blade

    I started using a pinking blade on my rotary cutter because I thought it would help keep the material from raveling (which was really never a problem, so I don't know what I was thinking). When I went to re-order a blade online, I read customer comments that it really wasn't meant to cut material (scrapbooking, maybe?) - I did notice that it dulled somewhat quickly. I'd like to hear someone else's opinion!

    I was advised to buy a pinking blade by my LQS when I had a fraying problem with the silk I was working with. It really worked in my situation (below are the blocks with normal blade and pinking blade) but I'm not sure it's necessary with ordinary cotton.

    I know what you mean about it getting dull quickly. I kept catching mine on the edge of the ruler so I think that might be what does it.
