The thickness is listed as 0.025 inches or 1mm. Doubt you'd be able to cut through that with a simple mechanical blade, least of all one that's intended to cut through paper that's a fraction of that thickness. These seem to be intended for etching and laser cutting.
I've been able to cut .030" plastic styrene without issues. I believe the Flex steel should be pliant enough to cut by scissors.
If I give it a try, I will post my results.
Long time ago, Jim Hartman had an idea to glue sheets of flex-steel to the underside of his paper movement trays, then glue squares cut from magnetic sheets to the bottom of figures paper bases. He used scissors for the whole thing and at one point posted a pic of a movement tray full of figures being held upside-down.
I'm curious as to how robust the Silhouette blades are, good luck with your experiment.
