Imperial Blades has come out with a new 4-in-1 drywall-cutting blade for oscillating multi-tools.
Drywall-cutting multi-tool blades have existed for a while (we posted about Dremel’s back in 2012), buy what makes this one stand out is its 4-in-1 design.
The new Imperial Blades drywall multi-tool blade has 4 features and functions:
Dagger Blade: The slim hook-shaped blade is designed for detailed cuts, especially tight circles.
Depth Gauges: Marked increments show the drywall thickness, and are designed to help users monitor the depth of their cuts.
Piercing Tips: Similar to how jab saws are used, the piercing tips are designed to penetrate drywall for clean starts, and also have push/pull out capabilities.
Shaver Notches: Small notches help to remove excess drywall, for better fit.
Imperial Blades says that this blade allows for easier cuts in drywall to create cutouts for electrical boxes, recessed light cans, and PVC pipes.
The front blade is designed to plunge-cut lines exactly the same width as standard American outlet boxes.
The blades have Imperial Blades’ One-Fit interface, and are said to fit the following brands of oscillating multi-tools, and others.
- Fein (2016 and prior)
- Chicago Electric
- Hyper Tough
Some of these tools might require an adapter. It will NOT fit oscillating multi-tools with a Starlock interface.
Images of the product packaging says that Imperial Tools is making these in the USA with global components.

If you’re wondering why Imperial Tools’ compatibility list includes Milwaukee, Ridgid, and Ryobi first, and why the new blade is shown in product photos with a Milwaukee oscillating multi-tool, allow me to remind you that they were acquired by Milwaukee Tool back in October 2018.
