I have always been loyal to Olfa Rotary Blades except for a brief stint when I tried Fiskars brand several years ago. I was very displeased as the blade skipped almost right from the start and certainly didn't stay sharp for very long.
Well, I was shopping at Wal-Mart recently and found the Fiskars blades again and thought I'd see if they had improved any. Woo woo! they had improved big time! In fact, I think they last longer than the Olfa. I ran over a pin today trimming a quilt for binding and the blade still works with no ill effects. Really. I've done a little research and apparently the standards for the Fiskars have been improved to equal the Olfa.
