  • Light cardboard
  • Paper
  • Film
  • Cloth
  • Plastic
  • 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.

How Much Pressure?

How much pressure should you use when using your X-ACTO knife? Truth is, it’s probably less than you think. Too much pressure can break or chip the blade. If your blade is nice and sharp, you just need the right amount of steady pressure from your fingertip to go through your paper and nothing more. Practice a light steady touch to achieve the right amount of pressure.
