Has anyone used ceramic rotary blades? I saw them
mentioned on a sewing site but have not heard anyone
say they have used them. Thanks for any information
you may have. Thanks, Carolbee

If this is what was discussed, I am not ready for it. $75 per blade! It may just cut right through the traditional rotary cutting mat.

Wowsers, $75.00 per blade. It may also cut right through a finger too I should do a show and tell with my scarred finger if I go to a PR event. The ER doc said I was lucky, that what he usually sees from rotary cutter accidents is much worse.

I did have the little safety lip attached to my straight edge. The cutter jumped that when I was making a cut on multiple layers. I use a different method now to keep my fingers and hand well clear of the cutter. The ceramic blade, though, sounds scary if it gets used with no extra precautions. Wonder if the cut resistant gloves work with ceramic blades?

Ceramic blades will stop on Kevelar gloves. I use those when using a rotary cutter.

Forgot about the glove. I do have a Klutz glove. Probably not the same as Kevlar.

Don't forget the quantity discount - $60 if you buy 20 or more

Unless I start making Hazmat or firefighter suits, I'll stick with steel...
