We are trying to find out how we can get two paper cutters' blades sharpened. Does anyone know where we can take them? Or does anyone know how we can sharpen them? There must be some way.

Teri, I use aluminum foil on my punches and cutters. I learned that trick on a craft show. Cut or punch through the foil a few times and then you cut through wax paper. I guess to made them glide easier. I do this periodically whether they feel dull or not. And it works!

Cut through several sheets of medium grade sand paper. Also works for scissors! (06/14/2006)

Try cutting sheets of sand paper. It may take a few sheets, but it should do the trick. Also works for sharpening scissors! (06/14/2006)

Sharpening a Paper Cutter

Cutting through sandpaper will never do anything but ruin the blade. It may cause micro-serrations which temporarily give the impression that the cutter is sharper, but it will do damage that is very difficult to rectify. (06/26/2007)
