The Brass Tacks: A Handy Razor Holder from Mark Lewis

April 10, 2023

Welcome to our new column, The Brass Tacks, in which we highlight the tiniest but mightiest details in the house: good-looking hardware, hinges, and fixtures.

Remember the little slots in the back of mirrored bathroom cabinets? Contractors installed them in decades past as tiny trash chutes for used razor blades. Years later, though, those doing bathroom renovations opened up the wall to reveal an avalanche of used and rusty blades (see here). As with so many ways we humans dispose of our detritus, it’s the example of quick but not sustainable or sensical.

A much better solution? A made-to-last razor and a handy spot to keep it (and disposing the blades properly, i.e. in a sharps collection container, not in the wall).
