Ah, the cursed paper cut. Scourge of office workers, old-timey readers, and packers of boxes. What possible good could a paper cut do in this world, you might ask. Designer Nadeem Haidary answered that question with a proposition: how about using paper cuts to cut something we actually want to cut?
Enter the Paper Cut Razor, a papercraft model of a disposable razor made out of a single piece of paper. Equipped with three slits meant to mimic the multi-bladed design of most modern razors, the Paper Cut Razor certainly looks real, and Haidary notes that it’s made of water-resistant paper to avoid turning to mush when interacting with water. He even posted a GIF of the razor in “action”:
On the other hand, the project is a mere concept–Haidary tells us in an email that it’s “meant to illustrate a design idea, but it doesn’t actually work.” Still! Looks cool, and we’re always in favor of elaborate papercraft.
