I have a Fat Max folding blade like these. Here we call these type Carpet Cutters since most of the carpet pros have these with either straight or hooked blades.

I'll dig it out - I have not tried it with the Green EBoard. I do agree you can apply more force with this type of cutter.

That won't happen - but I do see a contest starting. I'm betting I can chop more boards than David. And would go as far to say more than any of you. I did spend all that time washing my dad's car when I was little.

Put do you buy the black blades or the silver. My money is on the silver - I have never found the blacks ones to be better in any way. Except for draining my wallet faster.

I'm not sold on the Black Ones.

I'll have to put them head to head with the silver blades. I have noticed that my silver blades are snapping easier than before. Or perhaps it's just me getting more forceful with the blade.

Took a face shot the other day cutting in a niche. Blade snapped and hit my check at mock five. That will learn ya.

They definitely perform better with carpet...they hold their edge a lot longer,and definitely sharper to start with.....

Hmmm.

Most stuff I'm cutting is backer board and that edge does not last that long. I use about 2 blades a day when we are boarding.

After the face shot I'm going to try that old Fat Max blade again for a boarding job and see if it works any better. I've never had one of those blades break on me.

I do find them to be more brittle. When you snap one blade a lot of time the pressure makes two go.

Maybe the black blades are made in China?

I use Masterforce from Menards and they're made in the USA.

Re: Green EBoard Questions And Reviews.


I can honestly say I've used a plethora of olfa blades!! Started using them probably 15-20 years ago. When cutting permabase for a shower I'd go through 3-4. Tried the black ones and always thought they dulled quicker than the regular ones. Plus, only had to get stitches a couple of times...damn things are sharp!
