One Gee’d Up Blade

This is a revival of the scariest bathroom tool ever created by mankind. The butterfly knife. And in this case, it’s made to be used only on the throat and the face. Not for killing! For shaving. Designer George Christou is very disturbed with the idea that the butterfly knife to the throat for shaving or, as he calls it, the “art of shaving” ritual, is about to be gone forever! So he made a new one!

Christou frowns upon the ease and sissiness – (see: weak, non-manly, smart) of modern day shaving tools. So! He’s reviving the butterfly knife for it’s large, dynamic blade, dual handles, and ability to be customized and extended. The use of this product, he says, takes time, skill, and effort in order to master.

And it is called the “G Blade.”

Not allowed in my house! Too scary!

NOTE: but I should mention that it is also very beautiful, and certainly would be quite the magical feat to master.

Designer: George Christou

  • I would love one of these. Very fond of the butterfly knife as a form factor, and think this would be a nice piece. Only concern is keeping it clean/rust free b/c of the hinges.

  • Keith says:

    No one that uses a straight razor would use one of these. The form factor is totally wrong for holding the razor while shaving.

    Bah. I use my 14″ Rambo knife.

  • AJR says:

    Nice work of art but utterly useless for actually shaving with. Let’s not get into the maintenance issues…

    Is this a commercial for the bodyshop?!

    It looks cool but that is it.

  • David says:

    I used to use a straight razor and I agree this one looks like it would not be comfortable to position properly. Two more things, 1. If someone wants to send it to me I will test it but I get to keep it when done! and 2. WTF do you mean “Not allowed in my house! Too scary!” That makes no sense. You have no blades in your house? Is your plastic lettuce “knife” “safer”? Wow, I hope you do not slip on the tile and slap your head on the counter! What a putz.

    Yes, you guys are right. Bad ergonomics, difficult to strop, scary and impractical.
    NOW TELL ME WHERE I CAN GET ONE!
    Sorry 'bout the shouting, but I want it. BADLY!
