    Blades for Brim Trimmer?

    I recently found one of these brim trimmers on EBay, and now that it has arrived, the blade looks like it needs to be replaced. Anyone have any idea where I might find a replacement blade? I did not take a photo of the blade when I had it apart, but it's an odd shaped single-sided razor blade, with three holes down the center. I've never seen one like it before.



    In my search for replacement blades, so far, I asked Aaron's Hats, 'cause they have sold the trimmers, but he did not have an answer for me.

    Anyone else? Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Don't know where to get a replacement blade, but it may well be possible (feasible, even) to sharpen the existing one.

    Thanks. Now why didn't I think of that? There's some statement about our disposable society, I guess....

    M & F Western makes/vends the trimmers. They might be able to put you on to some blades though they will not be able to sell them directly to you, they will have to sell them to your local tack or western store who will then have to sell them to you, a real pain.
    M & F -catagory # 41 under hat bands & supplies. I could use a few of those myself.

    May want to try these guys, too.
    They seem to have a few M&F products listed.

    Guess I should have asked first and bought later...or not bought. :

    Oh well.
