I finally got some new blades for my utility knife. How many years I used this one, is anyone’s guess.It was used so long because it was my last one and the sheer fact that I didn’t want to drive to the hardware for just such a small purchase, never remembering them when I did have other purchases. Well, I finally bit the bullet and bought a 50 pack yesterday. That pack will most likely outlive me. My old blade is quite a work of art. I will say, it is quite easier to cut things with a sharp blade. 2 of the many things I have learned in life: Never buy crappy cheap tape and keep new blades handy.
