You can imagine that I see a lot of strange gadgets whilst scouring the interwebs. Sometimes they’re funny, other times they just seem poorly designed. This one I simply find terrifying. It takes a lot of faith to scrape an incredibly sharp piece of metal across one’s face. Fortunately we have the luxury of fancy plastic razors with carefully designed blades, and we don’t really have to worry about getting (many) unnecessary cuts. The only problem is that those blades can become quite costly. What’s the solution? Sharpen those old blades!
While I’m sure that this product works exactly as advertised, it just scares me. I have no issue sharpening my kitchen knives or a pocket knife, as I don’t scrape them across my face on a regular basis. However, the slightest imperfection on the tip of the blade can land you a nasty cut, and my ugly mug doesn’t need any help. Then again I use an electric razor, so I wouldn’t need to drop $20 on this anyway.
