I know I’m not the only one who hates spending on average $5.00 per 45 mm blade. In fact, I refuse to change my blade until I’m straining my entire upper body to cut through the fabric. Some might say that makes me a tight wad but I would disagree. I want to get every penny out of my blades, especially now when things are tight for all of us. Let’s face it, not many of us are millionaires. I know I’m not. So, imagine my surprise when I found out there’s a place where I can get a pack of 2 replacement blades for $1.99. That’s less than a $1.00 a blade! You can get a 2 pack of 45 mm blades from …Harbor Freight! That’s right…Harbor Freight!
Now don’t panic. I know the package says replacement carpet cutter blade but this blade will fit most rotary cutters. These blades can be found in the carpet cutting section of your local store.
I can say with 100% certainty that they fit the Martelli, Olfa, and Fiskars cutters. I have each of these brands and I personally checked to see if they would fit. And I cut some fabric with each cutter after replacing the blades. I didn’t have any trouble. You can even order them online at Harbor Freight if you don’t have a local store. Just search for item number 97642. They’ll come right up.
Now I know saving a couple bucks won’t appeal to everyone but I thought I would share this little bit of information. I love to save money when I can…especially if it means I’ll have a little extra to spend on fun things like more fabric!
