The #8 Lightweight Utility Blade from X-ACTO is a general purpose blade designed to provide an accurate cut through a variety of different medium density materials. The #8 blade also features a dual cutting edge. When one side begins to dull, simply reverse the blade for a fresh cutting edge – twice the blade for the price of one!

The X-ACTO #8 Lightweight Utility Blade works with a wide range of materials:

  • Cardboard
  • Plastic
  • Most papers
  • Foam board
  • Twine
  • And more

X-ACTO blades are designed to allow you to make the careful and detailed cuts you need time and time again. Our blades are created with care and exceptional craftsmanship, producing a cutting edge that stays sharp. An X-ACTO quality blade is always ready when you need it.

The original X-ACTO knife has been praised for more than 50 years as the standard for precision. Attaining this level of precision, accuracy and reliability starts with supreme quality craftsmanship. X-ACTO knife blades are crafted with sharpened carbon steel for a reliable cut and a strong blade. X-ACTO knife blades fit with most X-ACTO knife models.

Soften Up

Some woods, such as walnut or oak, are really hard in nature, and can make it difficult to carve from. One woodworking tip is to soften up wood by applying de-natured alcohol on the surface. The alcohol will soften the wood and eventually evaporate over time, without leaving a residue. Also, the alcohol will not affect the wood grain like water sometimes can.
