    I know I've seen it asked many times, but never seen a source for after market blade holders until today. Found this while searching for something else....

    Anyone dealt with them before? $42 for a Graphtec blade holder, $40 for Roland and Mimaki. I have nothing to do with the company, I just saw it and thought it might be useful information for someone.

    I agree, this isn't the blade, it's the blade holder. We don't buy cutters anywhere else either, his stuff is the best. This is specifically for the blade holders. I don't see blade holders for machines in his catalog.

    I found the blade holders from those master plotters to be rather decent. I picked up about 8 of them over the years from people who have dead machines. Also have about 5 of those holders that you can stick that middle of an econo ink pen in. good stuff. rounded tip, billet aluminum, and back loaded as opposed to front loaded.

    Edit: Really the only thing that is worth the money with that type of plotter ... well that and the roll feeds are really well made and suprizingly balanced ... turned some into a roll feed for when I manually laminate.

    Found the pen which is extremely similar only is made for roland blades. http://www.uscutter.com/US-Cutter-MH-Ballpont-Pen-Holder-Pen-_p_118.html

    Blade holder on the master website ... wouldn't pay 50 bucks for it though. http://www.masterwarehouse.com/show_product_detail.php?product=0010-Consumable%20Parts/0021-Blade%20Holder&type=cbh1000.txt
