Though handy to have around the shop, disposable blades present a danger long after they’re useful. If you’ve ever found out the hard way that someone tossed out a used razor blade, you know what I mean. Instead of tossing sharps out in the normal trash, you can store ’em safely in OLFA’s DC-4 Blade Safety Case until they can be properly disposed of.
You open the DC-4’s blade slot by pressing down on the case. After you’ve placed or snapped off a blade in the slot, the slot closes automatically, so you can keep the case in a pocket or toolbox without fear of loose blades. When it’s time to dispose of the blades, you just separate the two halves of the case by removing a single screw. Street pricing is about $5.
