Utility razor blade applications

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

  Hey yall, I was cleaning my tool/junk drawer out and found a pack of new utility razors and had a thought; what could I use this for in cooking? Has anyone used brand new razors for kitchen work? How about anything else we'd expect to see in the workshop rather than the kitchen? Thoughts, experiences, ideas?

In baking baguettes or country breads you can use them to slice into the surface of the dough before putting the loaf in the oven to allow the crust to spread into those lovely designs. It's kind of shocking how quickly the blades get too dull to do that smoothly.

Because you can choke up on the tip it makes scoring duck skin a lot more uniform.

Heard about the bread thing, and thought about the duck as well. One reason I started this thread is also because of Chefsteps on YouTube. They seem to use some odd items in their kitchen, calipers comes to mind from some video. I've used foil wrapped bricks as grill presses before with success and also used bricks to build a small rocket stove on a charcoal grill when I has REAL low on charcoal. New paint brushes as basting brushes... ummm... I'm sure there are also some ghetto things I've done in lieu of having the proper equipment, but none seem to come to mind.
