        The blade works well. I especially liked the blade guard that flips up to cut the paper.

          They should tell you thaty when you buy the dispenser, that you also need this blade. It also seems that HD doesn't offer other lengths for the different width papers they sell.

                  A little awkward to use the first time. You have to develop some technique or you will shred the rfilm and cut holes in it.

                    consider the "straight cut" blade (FB12-SC) instead
                    This was a very confusing purchase for us. First, we did not realize we needed to purchase the blade separately. Then we saw that it said on the dispenser package: "blade sold separately". There are two small icons next to these words: one of "paper/film blade" and one of "straight cut blade". Would that we had understood what this meant. BECAUSE confusingly, although this product is described on Home Depot's website as "12 in. Masking Film and Paper Cutoff Blade", the photos are mostly of the newer design, the "straight cut" blade. (Home Depot should fix this on their website.) It does not appear that Home Depot sells the newer "straight cut" blade; my local Home Depot certainly does not. The older design blade is model FB12; the newer "straight cut" design blade is model FB12-SC. (3M should put these model numbers on the dispenser package along with a better explanation.) We went back to Home Depot, purchased the FB12, and opened it. We could not figure out why it didn't look like the photos. It took some research to figure it out. The unit is easy to load and use UNTIL you get to the end of your run and want to cut the plastic. No wonder 3M came up with a new design. Often I had to resort to a scissors. (We were using the 99 in. plastic film which might be harder to cut.) We did watch videos online of a painter who uses the older model and gets good clean cuts with a practiced snap of his wrist. But he also has taken the blade guard off his units. Yikes. He did say to be careful of the sharp blade. I couldn't even figure out where the blade was at first. Look under blade guard, it's there. 3M should better explain the options on their packaging, and Home Depot should show only photos of the blade they're selling. It would be good if they sold the other blade also. If they were both on the shelf next to each other, I think we might have figured it out.
