Blunting against the ruler is so annoying Paul, but the more you do the easier it becomes. How many blades so far, hope you keep the quantity you use !Thing is, to get a controlled cut along the steel rule, you have to hold the blade at a slight angle towards the rule, to stop it wandering off. Get the angle even a little wrong and you either slice through the card you want to keep, or promptly blunt the blade against the rule - I've mucked up a new blade on its very first pass before - very frustrating. Increasingly, I cut freehand. You have to cut curves freehand anyway, so it's all good practice. Scoring curves accurately is trickiest, I find.
