    Hi there.
    I'm looking for someone that have purchased off-brand blades for Graphtec cutter CB09. I was wandering if you could share your experience you had with less expensive (It sounds bad when you call them cheap :smile:) blades, and of course, please share the source if you had a good experience and you liked the blades.

    Thanks in advance. :thankyou:

    Don't need to buy knock offs. SignWarehouse has the Graphtec blades for $11.

    Thanks for the votes guys.

    CP sorry to burst your bubble, but the blades from sign warehouse are knockoffs not OEM.

    Would CC blades be considered an 'off brand'? I know they are the best brand.

    Blades

    I have a question about the same blades.
    Ordered CB09 blades put them in and they stop swiveling and don't work.
    The new ones are a little different then the old ones. I have been trying to figure out if I should just buy a new holder.
    Original ones that came with the machine work fine when I put them back in.

    Here are the two

    That's what I thought.
    I ordered them from 1 supplier (not oem) and sent them back when they didn't work. I then ordered oem blades.... Stil no luck.
    Looking at just getting new holder.

    I am currently using the $11 one from signwarehouse with no issues, and it cuts very clean, everything weeds very easy.

    I use an $8.00 blade (60*) from Specialty Graphics, I cut t-shirt vinyl 99.9% glitter, but I do use a lot of blades as it tears 'em up pretty quick. I used a bunch of clean cut blades also, therefore I use the cheap ones.

    can't fault you for that

    Mr Fatty, do you have a red holder for your machine? I have a new blade made out of a new material for glitter and reflective and magnets, but I don't make it for the blue holder yet. I can't blame you abit for using a cheaper alternative for glitter it is nasty on blades. Blades on the market aren't made to be used against metal.
