I love my rotary blades! I can’t even begin to imagine
tackling quilting without one (mad respect for quilters who attempt any quilting project
with hand cutting!).
seemed to be with my rotary blades. It’s amazing how quickly they become dull
and, with the number of projects I tackle, I was going through them at an
alarming rate. Given my disdain for waste and goal to reduce my waste
footprint, I was super thrilled to stumble upon the TrueSharp Electric Blade Sharpener!

This nifty little gizmo allows me to sharpen my rotary
blades – any size from 28 mm to 60 mm – with the press of a button. Plus it works with most brands, including Fiskars and Olfa. How cool is
The kit comes with everything you need to get started, including:
- The electric blade sharpener
- Sharpening stones – top and bottom
- Power cord
- Cleaning cloth
It’s a recent gift I received for my birthday, so I haven’t
tested it out for very long, but I wanted to share the good news with you as
soon as possible!
The other day, I whipped out my stash of dull blades and
went to town. I needed to prep the sharpening stones with some of the oil
provided in the kit. Then, after two 30 second whirls, they were done and

not sure how many sharpenings I will be able to get out of them before I must
truly ditch the rotary blade and pull a new one out, but I’m sold on this
little tool. Even if I get a few extra wears out of each blade, that’s a huge
cost savings; blades are not cheap!
face it, us quilters are always on the hunt for great tools!) this one is super
practical and cost effective to add to your arsenal.
