Wasn't meant as blame....lol.  I just went back thru trying to figure out how we went from blade sharpners to bias tape makers.  And there it was....garage sale for unused tools.....and things rapidly went off topic quickly.  It seems we are easily distracted when it comes to conversations.......LOL.   Ok  you can smack my hand now....such a bad, bad girl..........

I have two different styles of round ones.  I agree that they aren't great but better than nothing.  I never knew the "turn the blade over" trick.  I wonder why that works since it doesn't seem like you are using a specific edge of the blade when you are rotary cutting.

I don't know why turning it over works but it gives me a lot more use out of the blade.  It is also supposed to help if you rub oil on the blade when it starts getting dull.....don't know why that helps either......

I got mine in the mail finally - yesterday - it arrived... and ladies I think it is going to be a winner... i sharpened the blade I had in my cutter and although it wasn't a real dull one it did look like brand new when i swiped it just a couple times - the sharpener is easy to use and my DH says the idea behind it is sound...

So for the moment it gets an A and that may get upgraded to an A+ later when I get out one of my old dull blades and see if it sharpens them... if it does - I will be swimming in blades...teehee

Thanks for the update Thea.  I have been looking at that so keep us posted as to how it does on your other blades. 

Nana - I wonder if the turning it over works because you are always using one hand (right or left as your personal case may be).   If that is true, it wouldn't work for me because I am ambidextrous and use my cutters with both hands.  :o)

I have no idea why it is supposed to work.  Just know that it does.  Give it a try and see if you see a difference.

Kris, I think it will work very well and for quite a while - it has a sharpening stone in it and the one we have for sharpening knives has lasted about 100 years - handed down within our family...

I have more blades then i know what to do with now...teehee... it works great - i sharpened 10 of my old blades today that i had been keeping in a spare yellow holder waiting to fill it before throwing away... am glad that i kept them... maybe now when I am at a class i can give some of them away...teehee... pay it forward... going to put the blade makers out of business... or maybe you can only sharpen them so many times like with knives but at least now i don't have to put a new blade in for each project.
