Here a simple yet handy tool I made to comfortably and safely hold razor and utility blades. I made one for each blade shapes. Handles are emade out of poplar. They are great in the shop and around the house.

I believe photos are self explanatory. If not, all details and more photos can be found on this page of my blog.

Thanks for looking.

Best,

Serge

Serge,

You have a great way of simplifying solutions. I was just scraping the paint off my last screw up and grabbed a utility blade. I have a metal one for razor blades but no razor blades. LOL! I just have to find down time to make one. :-)

Well ya.
It beats my Utility Scraper Blade with the “flappy” duct tape for a handle.
How about a nice box to keep it it. Wooden hinges, inlays, exotic woods etc…...................

Serge, if yer into scrapers, next time yer at a garage sale and see a cheap pair of skates with removable blades, , for a coupla bucks, you get 8” scraper blades that can be burnished on BOTH sides. AND wuth sweet faur curved ends and a long straight section.

All you gotta do is make a handle for them, but I just dismount them and use “as is”

I love scrapers.

This was an epiphany for me, to find the steel, good quality, being sold so cheaply!!!!
