The end of the blade can be broken away seven times, giving eight fresh cutting points. The blades are scored during manufacture to facilitate this, but a fair amount of finger-strength is required to make the "snap." The end cap furthest from the blade, is intended to be used as an aid for this, but does not provide sufficient leverage. A pair of pliers is recommended. We also feel it is very important to do the snapping well away from the eyes, in case of small, sharp, pieces of flying metal. All used blades should be kept and disposed of in a "Sharps" container". Do not endanger your dustman's hands by putting blades in the domestic waste.
Purchasers of this knife must be aware that they must of over eighteen, and must use the knife responsibly.
