Does anyone else use the black olfa carbon blades for PPF. Once you try them you will never go back to anything else.

Familiarity leads to more confidence... Confidence creates an environment for more positive results.

If you want to get a sharper Olfa-type blade edge with your favorite knife, dab a drop of machine oil on your freshly loaded s/s blade. Extend it fully and run it several times thru a v-style chef's knife sharpening tool (just the sides, not the center of the blade). It micro-hones the edge and the sharpness of your cutting blade will double..

Oxidation, abrasion, time from production to storing to use, will dull the edge of any blade. Same reason why chefs run their knives with a sharpening tool before cutting anything. If you do this, your blade will have a superior edge.

What is window tinting?
 Window tinting is the phrase usually used to describe the process of applying window film to car windows or flat glass in homes and buildings.

 Window tint or film is constructed of one or more layers of polyester film darked or dyed with a variety of components to achieve different results. It is coated with an adhesive and generally applied to the inner surface of windows to reduce heat, light and improve aesthetics. Thicker versions are used as a safety film to help prevent injuries and to slow intruders.

 Having glass tinted can generally reduce the need for air conditioning and can pay for itself over time in residential and commercial applications. Many modern window films are able to achieve a great amount of heat reduction without as much visible light reduction compared to the window films of the past.
