Ever wonder what to do with those “Dull” razor blade knives that you “Break-Off” and throw away? All sorts of handy little scrapers, marking knives, mini-chisels etc. can be made from this great little piece of hardened steel.
Here is an example of what I did with the last piece in the knife.
Next simply mark out the desired shape of your tool with a sharpie, we will do a simple marking or layout knife
Next we will cut this shape out with a little cut-off wheel in a dremel tool
A quick rounding off of the sharp corners on the disc sander give us this! I have tons of these laying around my bench, a quick swipe on your strop with a little compound on it and its back to razor sharp again. I use these “As-Is” many time but a little slit in a dowel, a drop of CA glue and a quick sleeve of electrical heat shrink give a tool with more reach and versatility. Here is how I “Finished This one off”.
You can make little angle chisels, scrapers that work great for glue removal, marking knives, let your imagination and sharpie guide you! Literally less than 5 minutes from start to finish.
