These are my faithful rotary cutters… the 28mm and 45mm. Sadly, they are as blunt as a hammer !
Everyone has this in their kitchen, right? And what has the aluminium foil to do with sharpening rotary cutter blade, you ask ?
Well, you simply fold a piece of foil a few times and just slice away with your blunt dull rotary cutter…pausing a few times to test it out on your fabric scraps …till it starts slicing away your fabric too!
You will end up with this and an almost new rotary cutter!
I found this little trick while hopping and surfing in blogland .
The only catch is how long the blade will keep sharp. Still, it beats throwing it into the trash.
I read that it works too for sharpening scissors.
Disclaimer : I will not be held responsible for any mishap or misfortune in the process of sharpening your rotary cutter blade. Please take caution.
P.S. Let me know if it works for you too
