Another Thing you could do would be to get a nice piece of wood and put a couple pegs through the hole in the ravor blade and the wood. Then you would have a better handle.

Dude, cool knife but I don't see why you would take the blade out of a box cutter, and make a tiny knife that will bend when you try to cut something.

I guess its an okay knife to save money, but i don't think its worth it. just get a box cutter or something.

So you took a good knife and made it into a bad one? I guess the novelty of a pocket sized razor knife is nice when you are in grade school. Grow up and buy a knife that wont slice your and open when the blade slices through your duct tape handle.
UGLY

razor cutters break not box cutter razors!
razor cutters? why on earth would you cut razors? lol
xabc5 years ago
this is useless
That is not a good idea. The blade will very quickly come out, and then potentially hurt you. At least drill a hole in the razor and put the paper clips through it.
he did loop a paper clip though one of the holes,
I agree. Not to mention that most blades of the type the author speaks of are designed to break away to supply a fresh edge and point. There's nothing really to keep the blade from breaking.

Yeah as a shank to stab your in mate so you don't get raped.
heh, totally.

See my comment response below for my initial opinion. Not a bad idea as a whole, there are just some areas you may not have thought about regarding the durability of this instrument you've designed. For the next attempt add some pictures for us to help us clarify steps and meaning.
