Double edge blades are ground on both sides, to come to a point. Single edge blades are ground on one side only, like a chisel.

These Keencut mountcutter blades are not oiled, which is the case with most blades packed for mountcutting. No oil removes the chance of smudges of oil appearing on the mount bevel if a blade has not been properly cleaned prior to use. They go through a cleaning/degreasing process before they are sealed in the cellophane sleeves.

However, the absence of any oil makes them more vulnerable to surface corrosion in damp or humid environments. To help minimise the chances of corrosion happening, here are some guidelines:

+ When opening a pack of blades, place the opened (but re-sealed) box in a small sealable plastic box with a silica gel sachet inside. You can often save silica gel sachets from other product packaging.

+ Only open one cellophane pack at a time. You probably do this anyway.

+ Consider storing full boxes again in a sealable tub with silica gel.

If some signs of corrosion are seen on a blade it should not affect the quality of the cut providing the corrosion is not on the tip being used.
