It seems that If stopping the inertia of the motor is harder than the blade, the way around the ss patent is to stop the motor rather than the blade. This might end up being more expensive, but what if a clutch disengaged the motor, a pancake brake stops the blade, and a solenoid or other drops it. With the motor disengaged it can run down on it’s own, the brake may not destroy the blade, and the solenoid or other could be repeatable. This would prolly be enough changes to defeat the patent???

However the best thing is just don’t let your hand get to the blade, this is possible with good technique.
