  4. Anyone else do this?

    Got tired of constantly sharpening the blades that comes with it. Also the factory blades are thicker and hard to pull through thick leather unless recently sharpened. I started using regular box razor blades and they seem to work much better. They are thinner and glide through thick leather like butter plus you just replace it with a fresh blade when needed. Been doing this for awhile and never had them slip out or anything.....Surely I'm not the only one doing this?
