I prefer the number eleven blades for the majority of my work but I noticed, right away , these blades are stiffer and seem to hold their edge a lot longer than the blades I have been using. Great product and the price is not much different than what I paid for the blades I used to use. I will definitely be a repeat customer.
I literally love these blades. They are the most versatile, longest lasting product on the market. I can cut clean curves and tiny details in paper using these bad boys. I've used them to cut everything from intricate papercut cityscapes to lace out of tyvek. I've even used them to cut lace into paper towels and china patterns into paper plates. They are the preferred disposable blade of every knife papercutter I know- And for good reason! <3
Great blades for all kinds of paper cutting
These blades are easily the best you can get, and made in USA as well! I bought a batch of 300 blades for less than $10 on Amazon....made in China, of course. As soon as tried your blades, I tossed all the Chinese-made ones in the trash. I cut a lot of frisket paper for airbrushing so the very tip of the blades has to last--again, there's just no comparison, the tips of your blades last longer than any others without snapping off. Yours are the only blades I'll use now!
Love these blades! Ended up running out for a week or so and picked up some cheap ones at the store to fill in. Worst purchase ever. What a single blade from you does , it took 6-8 of the cheap ones! If you’re not using Excel blades you’re not getting the best experience out there!
My go-to blades; so much so that my partner bought me a 1000-pack for my birthday!
If you know, you know. These are the workhorse hobby knife blade that are useful to pretty much any craft.
Love your #11 blades. I use them every day at my sign shop. Ever since the quality of X-Actos went downhill I’ve had to search, and all the others are poor. thank God I found yours!
Best #11 blades available. The only ones I've found with made in U.S.A. quality!
Best blades that I use for modeling in my hobby
I have been using these products for at least twenty years. The products quality is always top of the line. I will never use the competitors product. Blade sharpness is why these products are far and above the competition.
I actually got this as a gift for a professional papercut artist (some of you probably spoke with her at the recent GAP conference, where she was on the board). She has always extolled Excel and I’m sure will be very pleased with this supply. She frequently complains that art stores don’t carry them available in standard 100 packs. She uses the other blade when she must but far prefers Excel.
I have a question though: I see the blades are just lined up in the box. I had visions of hundreds of blades accidentally spilling out all over the floor. Is there a dispenser or case that people use? Or are papercutters just careful?
The Excel blades are sharper than the Xacto blades. I'm glad I eventually found out about Excel.
I love these blades. They are strong, cut clean and sturdy. I love that they are made in the USA as I love supporting US companies, especially one's that are so friendly. Thanks for your quality supplies. As a papercutter, I want to use the best tools possible. Excel makes that happen!
I've been using Excel blades for over 20 years and find they are consistently the best.
The blades work perfectly. Excel Blades shipped extremely quick. Great service, will definitely order again.
These blades are the best: firm, but flexible enough to use on curves without brittleness or chips, and so, so strong. I use a LOT of blades, and these are my go to for every professional project and commission. It makes me feel very good also to be supporting an area business! Thank you for an excellent and reliable blade at such a reasonable price.
I use several sizes of Excel blades and there are none better. Their customer service is tops also. Had a little mixup on a recent order (my mistake) but they promptly took care of it. I highly recommend Excel products for all your hobby needs.
Excellent service! Excellent quality.
Good price, quick delivery and the ever popular #11 blades. What more can you say!
These are extremely nice sharp blades. They are well worth the upgrade from the traditional brand for serious hobbiests.
I just bought a 1000 pack because I go through the blades like nobody's business. Clearly I'm committed! They stay sharp way longer than anything else on the market (and I assure you I've tried them all) and the tips don't break as easily. I've saved myself a lot of wrist pain by only using Excel #11 blades. Nothing goes through paper like they do. In sort, these blades are one of the greatest loves of my life. They're basically on par with my husband, my dogs, and nachos. Really, they're that good.
My search is over! Thank you for a consistently quality product! I'll never buy a blade anywhere else!
Delivered quickly and good packaging
These are great knifes. I love the fact these are made in the USA! And being able to buy these in a 100 pack is a wonderful value. When I finally work through these, I will be ordering again!
Consistently good blades. I use several blades per month and they work well.
Hi I just have to brag to you about your product. I’m not very happy to say this, but there was a time when I used to buy the cheapest blades on the market and searched for them by price alone. However, after and I became more professional in my leather crafting, I realized that The sharpness of an edge and the ability to retain that sharpness was far more important than a price would ever be. Luckily I came across your blades as they offered price as well as the aforementioned specialties. Everything I really ever needed,
I found with Excel blades. In the photo attached you can see all of my Leather crafting tools as they look to be sparkling like diamonds. I added that effect to the photo because that’s how my tools perform and That’s all because of your sharp blades and how much Not having any mistakes really makes my professionalism shine. I no longer have to go back and re-cut my l pattern or my leather, so therefore I no longer have mistakes like before when I used those cheap inexpensive blades that didn’t last through a single cut of leather. With Leather I need something that will last throughout the entire cut. That’s what your blades do. Thanks sooooooo very much once again. It’s truly appreciated.
As a papercut artist I was going through blades faster than a knife could cut through butter. Excel blades are sturdy and long lasting. The tips stay sharp and don't break off like other brands. Will definitely buy again

Great blades! They're consistently nice and sharp and excellent for crafts.
I'm in love with this as it helps me cut paper strips so easily without applying much pressure. Been using the knife from past 9 months and it's still sharp enough to use for some more time. Totally satisfied with the the quality and will purchase more.
I got the green knife from excel and I love it! I’ve been cutting silhouettes for almost 10 years and this is my favorite knife so far!
Love your products, that is why we order directly from you. In addition you get the items to us in the most timely manner! Thank you!
can always trust excel!
I am a full time papercut artist and I only use Excel Blades!! They are the best.
FAR better blade than X-Acto
Good product with a quick delivery. Our business had once purchased 2 - 100pcs boxes of blades at a very low but incorrect price, Excel was nice enough to give us a reduced price on our next purchase for our trouble. The blades themselves are quite durable and sharp and if you work in designing products for clients on a very frequent basis, you cannot afford to be constantly throwing out blades due to low quality. All that said, we will be doing business with Excel for a long time into the future.
they was needed for my rocket building. thanks
These blades are the best! I've tried various kinds of similarly shaped X-Acto brand blades but these are way more durable. I only use them on paper but I find that I have to change the blades way less often than I did with X-Acto #11s. The tips don't snap as easily and they definitely stay sharp longer which is essential for tiny, detailed work.
used to deburr copper parts
very sharp. Point sharper than exact o
Love using excel blades for paper cutting. The are perfectly honed and never break at the top. They help me make beautiful art.
I use these for detail work. They are the best that I’ve used.
Great service and selection!
I was really happy that I finally found a place I could buy my replacement blades. None of the local hobby shops carried the ones I needed. I will remember you the next time I need to reorder.
I use Excel blades for all of my cut paper artwork. I started cutting with Xacto, but quickly switched to Excel after trying them. I have used in excess of 300 Excel blades to make more than 70 pieces of art, from 4x6 to 24x36. I love them!
I have been using Excel blades and other Excel products sine I started my career as an Illustrator.
Although I use technology to help produce my work for the most part all my work is rendered by hand. I have found over the year that some tools are indispensable for me, my brushes and my Excel number 11 blades and knife.

The attached photo is of recent carvings that I couldn’t complete with the detail I wanted without the #11 blades. Excel blades are sharper than other blades I’ve used over the many years I have carved.
You know that slogan, "you've tried the rest, now try the best!" that seems to be on every pizza box? It's actually true with Excel Blades. I've used blades from big brands and generic brands, and Excel Blades are the best. In fact, they are the only ones I will use for my papercutting art. They stay sharper longer than the others and the tips are less likely to break.
We are a graphic design studio and they love those blades! Thanks!
Perfect blades that stay sharper longer than the Chinese blades I did use. I truly love these blades and the price I get them for. I make leather items and I need something like this I can rely on. Thanks for a wonderful product that lasts much longer than any I’ve used before. Plus being able to get them out and dispose of the old ones has never been easier.

These blades are the absolute best! The main difference between excel blades and the other well known brand is the tips of these rarely snap. Wouldn’t use anything else and recommend these to anyone wanting a decent blade..
very good, so much better than the ones I used before :-)
