CRICUT KNIFE BLADE REVIEW, TIPS & A PROJECT

Hey everyone! Ken here with Ken's Kreations.

In August of 2017, I was fortunate to attend the "Make Something You Love" event in Utah. At this event, Cricut announced some new products coming to the DIY movement. The BIG announcement was the introduction of the NEW Cricut Maker. At the time they announced the Cricut Maker, they shared the adaptive tool system which makes the Cricut Maker revolutionary! The first tool for the adaptive tool system was the Rotary Tool which gave the Cricut Maker the ability to cut through hundreds of different fabric material with amazing intricacy. But the tool that I had my eye on since the Cricut Maker launch was the Knife Blade. Well, today is the day that I finally get to test this amazing addition to the adaptive tool system. In today's post, we will cover what makes the knife blade different, give you 10 tips for beginners and also show you how to change the blade! All of this after the jump....

Cricut Maker is finally saying hello to his new little friend, the Knife Blade! Expand your creative horizon with this versatile Knife Blade And Drive Housing exclusively for the Cricut Maker. The steeply-angled edge of the Knife Blade makes it safe and easy to slice through thick or dense materials. Whether you're making wooden dinosaurs, airplane, models, leather wallets, foam toys or 3D dioramas, you can be confident that you have the right tools for the job. Currently, on the market, you can purchase Knife Blade And Drive Housing and the Knife Blade Kit, which you will need to purchase once your Knife Blade becomes dull.
