DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME, MATERIAL OR MONEY!
Reviewed in the United States on February 15, 2019
These blades are not the blades advertised.
When ordering my Cricut Explore Air 2 from Cricut themselves several months back, I also purchased two standard fine point blades from them at that same time.
In December, I purchased a pack of two "standard fine point blades" from here just to have on hand for when my others get dull as I use my machine regularly.
I just got around to opening and trying out these blades, and I am very disappointed.
These blades are not the same as the blades that come from Cricut themselves, or are defective. Either way, CRAP!
I wasted quite a bit of material on the last hour thinking that it was the material giving me problems, but I've use this material before, so I know that's not the issue
Then it became obvious...
I changed the blade right before I started this project and it kept peeling back the vinyl as it was cutting it. Upon close examination, the bevel of these blades have less of an angle and is not as sharp as the actual Cricut standard fine point blade. Which explains why the vinyl peels back when attempting to cut.
I have wasted my time, as well as valuable material.
Anyway, I have attached an image so you all can see for yourself.
The gold one is the Cricut brand. The silver is what i got when ordering these.
