FWIW, I had some extra weight left on an order from HK and bought some of their #11 blades. Don't bother unless you're planning on whittling 2x4s
they're thicker, and I think the angle on the edge is different.
Has anyone seen the new Xacto blades yet?
FWIW2: for beveling I use a single edge razor blade. They're cheap and I toss them after the bevels are done.
