Giant Metal Razor Blades: For the Quickest Shave

 |  |  |  |  |  March 14, 2022

Because art means different things to different people, Lance Barnett of Etsy shop BarnettPrototyping creates giant reproductions of double-sided razor blades. While typical razor blades measure about 1.5″ wide, these measure a respectable 5″ wide, 2.75″ tall, and 0.25″ thick – more than three times the size of a normal blade. Now I should be able to shave my entire face with only two or three strokes total!

Available in stainless steel ($50), brass ($74), and titanium ($125), the blades feature a beveled but unsharpened blade for safety purposes. I mean, you weren’t actually going to try shaving with one, were you? Because I was. Otherwise, what’s the point?!

Lance suggests the giant blade can be used as a scraper, paperweight, desk object, conversation piece, or even sharpened and used as a knife. He never explicitly suggests you use it as a weapon, but I’m great at reading between the lines. Or, should I say, misreading between the lines. Help post my bail?
