The Silhouette CAMEO 4 can also take the new Silhouette Rotary blade, the Kraft blade, and the Punch tool. These tools are all exclusively to be used in the CAMEO 4's right carriage, Carriage 2. They will not work in any other Silhouette machine.

A new CAMEO 4 pen holder will also be available - and compatible with three different size pens. It will fit in Carriage 1 only.

The Punch tool is to mark which areas of a cut design should be weeded.

The Silhouette CAMEO 4 Rotary blade is for cutting fabric without a stabilizer and delicate materials like crepe paper.

The tools are not included standard with the Silhouette CAMEO 4 however some retailers may include them with Silhouette CAMEO 4 bundles when they become available. These are not included in any of the first Silhouette CAMEO 4 pre sale bundles because it would hold up the shipment of the machines - which currently underway exclusively from Swing Design.

A confirmed shipping date has not yet been announced for the specialty blades.
