Give me your blades

As a devoted makemesomething reader you’ll be aware of my close relationship with Thomas Clipper, the young British brand famed for its classic razors and shaving accoutrements.

Ever since buying their first safety razor I’ve wondered what to do with the used blades. I was too environmentally conscious to chuck them in the bin and too safety-conscious to throw them in the recycling. So I held on to them.

39 blades and many shaves later, I’ve finally created this piece of bathroom art. The design has been floating around in my head for a while and I’m glad it looks as good in the real world as it did in my head.

Get in touch if you’re interested in turning your old blades into a piece of bespoke bathroom art.

I’ll even make you a little plaque that explains what the missing blade represents…


Go on, say it!
