    Default Tried to Catch Razor...

    So was stropping a few days ago and fumbled with a freshly honed blade and tried to catch it. Not only did I drop it and chip the edge a bit but got a good cut too. I figured out how to post pictures!!!!

    Sorry to hear/see that bro. One thing I learned while I was cooking full time...If it drops don't try to catch it. Served me well with straights too.
    Keep it safe and Cheers,

    I strop over carpeting. If I drop I just say a quick prayer it does not hit the molding and break.

    Guess you'll have the scar to be a reminder not to try that again
    Glad to see it wasn't to bad

    I have a rug in the bathroom when shaving. I have dropped my razor once and I didn't think of trying to catch it after reading threads about this, luckily it hit the rug and no damage was done. Glad to see it's getting better.

    I learned many years back that if I wanted to count to 21 at bed time; I best step back and let her fall!

    This brings up another dropped razor story from a few years ago.

    In short, if you shave right out of the shower, put a towel between you and the sink.

    I think we all have our dropped razor story to tell especially if you've been at it for many years. I know I've dropped a few.

    As bad as it may be it's worse if you be a watch collector and fumble putting on a nice watch and it hits the floor. The last time I did that the lesson cost me $1200.
