    I didn't feel very safe having that giant blade at the end of a thin narrow pencil. It kinda looks like the scythe of the grim reaper. What I did instead was tightly wedge the blade into a ball of polymer clay, shaped into a comfortable shape, and baked it with the blade in. It works equally good for my clay projects and paper. And since polymer clay bakes hard like plastic it's very sturdy.
