Double edge razor blades are a problem. The back edge is
dangerous, so here's a way to fix it.
Wearing your safety goggles and using pliers, break
the blade in half. Take some electrical tape and
put several layers on the broken edge. Fold the tape
over the edge on the first layer.
You can use the super sharp blades without
worrying about cutting yourself. The blade can even
by curved by applying pressure to both ends to cut
deer hair in muddler heads. ~ Nick Nalbone
