Thanks for that they are going to send me a new blade but goodness knows how long it will take.

Glad Cutterpillar are fulfilling their obligations under the lifetime guarantee. I am very tempted to have one - may have to look out for a good offer!

My goodness .....They ARE expensive!

I have a Crafters Companion Clever cut, it does several cuts and a perforation cut. I only use it for my inserts.
I can't see the sense in spending almost 70, when you can get the same thing for less than 25

is that the one that u never supposed to need new blade for. oris someting diff i have 2 or 3 diff ones and i dont think any of them work asthere supposed to . my first one is woodword  i go back to it. then i got a present of one like crafters companion one it seems to shred things. then i got purple cow  rotary and guilotine which i quite like. find gulotine handy for cutting to size. im terrible at str8 lines. cant seem to cut str8 at all. but they all look wondeful in demos on tv

It's the thought of never having to buy a replacement blade that I find so desireable about the Cutterpillar. I've had several trimmers over the years where the manufacturers (eg Woodware and Fiskars) stopped producing the blades as they had introduced new versions with different fittings - very frustrating! I've also been through several guillotines, where the blades have dulled or snagged beyond repair. The amount I've spent on buying the originals and then the newer versions which replaced them, plus all the new blades, must surely exceed the cost of the Cutterpillar with it's lifetime guarantee (can you tell I'm trying to persuade myself it's OK to buy one?)!

I'm afraid I've had several Clevercuts (Crafter's Companion) cutters too, over the years, but haven't rated them, so gave them away. I currently have a small Tonic guillotine and a larger Xcut guillotine on my craft desk, and take a Fiskars trimmer to classes/workshops.

I have the Cutterpillar Crop which is the smaller version and the blade sharpens each time you use it but you do have to make sure you press it against the edge of the steel as you push/pull it across when cutting for it to sharpen
