    If you bake bread you can use them to slice the tops of the loaves before baking.

    lol - The only thing I use old blades for is to scrape the glue off freshly unwrapped blades. Thanks for the ideas guys, now I'm off to make a sickle....

    I've lived in my old house for over 30 years but I didn't notice something until yesterday.

    In my medicine cabinet I noticed a sticker in the back of it. I looked closer and there was a small slot below it. The sticker says "Razor Blades".

    You just dump the old blades inside the WALL? What the hell?

    Lol. I guess you need to drop one in to see how full it is.

    I have seen those in old houses befor. My baby sitter growing up had a drawer by the sink that had a razor slot, when it was full you just pulled it and dumped it.

    Yeah, but this one is built in. You would have to pull the cabinet to get behind it.
