Save Money By Sharpening Your Old Razor Blades With Save A Blade

Save Money By Sharpening Your Old Razor Blades With Save A Blade

Save A Blade

By Luke Anderson

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.

    I can see this going down the printer-ink road. Next, manufacturers are going to add little magnetically-activated locks into the cartridges that retract and destroy the blades after a certain number of uses. And patented chips in the handle that can only be reset by a military-grade encrypted handshake protocol. (A safety feature, to prevent cuts from unauthorized usage, not to keep us buying new overpriced blades, of course.)

    After each shave, I’ve been cleaning my disposable blade in alcohol. So far I’ve been on the same blade since Dec 2 without one nick or cut. In this regard I’ve save myself 6 blades since I used to change it out every week.

    I’m wondering just how much you stand by your product! Recently, my wife and I have had terrible luck with these TV advertisments!!!!! How can I know your product is for real, and that I can trust that your product will arive in a timely manor?

    @ daniel: Can’t you read? He is just giving his thought on it not say anything about that he was selling or even endorsing the product…quite the opposite in fact.
    I have tried one of these and to tell you the truth it made a difference once but after that it seem to make it worse….so not really a deal if you ask me.

    I just ordered the thing by 800# and they tried to sell me everything in the world. At the end they advised they were charging my credit card $50 instead of the 19.95 price as advertised. I suspect its a scam and a ripoff.

  • wanted to save my blades

    I ordered a gadget from a certain company claiming to allow anyone to sharpen all kinds of popular blades… the advertisement scanned a supermarket isle of lots of blade brands. The new sharpener was opened and the instruction manual read at which time I could not use the sharpener for any blade i has ever used due to the blades having a retaining clip in the way of the sharpening belt. If used the sharpener would be rendered useless and the blade would be ruined also. The product and advertisement are bogus… i would not suggest the lastest and greatest means of “Save a blade”.

    This review is totally pointless. The reviewer hasn’t even used the product so why is he writing about it? I’ll bookmark this forum in the folder labeled “hollow self-indulgent weblogs”.

    I don't usually buy made on tv stuff but I recently purchased this save a blade product due to the fact that I have 6 famlily members & have had to pay about $20-$40 every month on replacement blades. Unfortunately I used this product on 2 gillette razors & it rendered both of them useless. It didn't just destroy the blades but both entire razors as well! We ended up having to buy a bunch of cheap razors to make up for the fact that I wasted so much money on this thing! Don't waste your time or money, it's not worth it.
