Much better than Revell brand blades, I bought a package of them because the craft store didn't have x-acto brand and found they couldn't even cut through cardboard.

it's supposed to cut through nothing except your pocket and budget

Neat idea! Out of curiosity - how much do the real blades cost?

author

20$ for 100 blades

author

I don't know how much cost on usa but here in italy more than 3 euro each one!!! bye thanks!

About $3 for the regular small blade pack of 5 in X-acto brand, $1.50 for the off brand, but they are thinner and bend more (good for some things, worse for others). Blades for the bigger handle (and most special shapes) run $3-5 for a pack of 2.

Here in italy blades cost many.. because the large part of people prefer use normal cutter whith the 45° blades... In mani hardware store is very difficult find the x-acto knife blade.. bye thanks

Please try to be a little more clear in your diction

Sir, I know, I need some lessons of English language. Sir, may you be my diction teacher please? Best wishes.

Thank you.

I've noticed that you enjoy pointing out other peoples' imperfections. Maybe a pretentious person like yourself would be happier on some other site. SO GO THERE!!

Wow.. beautifully simple but I'd never even thought of it. Combine with https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-Your-Own-X-Acto-Knife/ and stick it to the man in a crafty DIY fashion :)

Does the blade slip and rotate in the slotted part if you bear-down a bit hard? Genuine X-acto blades go down toward the handle a lot and keep this from happening. BTW, when did X-acto go away from the all-aluminum design? I was surprised to see the blue-colored part in your pix.

author
minimalista (author)dacker2007-12-27

Yes but for cutting balsa, paper and soft materials is quite good... The blue-colored part is because my knife it's a bad clone of real x-acto knife... bye bye

I've had a problem with the plastic insert and blades slipping out, but not with the metal inserts-I'm guessing that the metal insert (collet) can be tightened more or that the plasisizers make it a little greasy.
