Replacement Blade Pack (3 60 degree and 3 45 degree blades)

This is a set of replacement Roland type blades. This set contains one pack of 3 45 degree blades and one pack of 3 60 degree replacement blades.

45 degree blades are general-use type blades.

60 degree blades are typically used for cutting through thicker materials, as well as for fine detail work.

Rationale for blades of different angles

The primary rationale for blades of different angles is cutting depth. A lower angle (45 degree) is great for thin materials, while a steeper angle (60 degrees) has a more vertical cutting orientation that penetrates deeper.

An increased amount of blade dragging through the material when cutting fine detail can cause, what they call, vinyl ears (parts lifted up). With minimal blade in the material, a 60 degree blade tends to cause fewer, if any, vinyl ears.

Using a 60 degree blade on everyday cutting is a waste of a blade, technically speaking. Less of the blade's cutting area is used, and blade life is wasted. The more horizontal cutting orientation of the 45 degree blade accurately distributes the cutting task over a larger blade area, and thus last longer (and is cheaper). So use a 45 degree blade always, unless a 60 degree blade is needed for thick or more custom types of cutting, if 45 degrees blades are not available.
