razor blades

Disposable, single-edge razor blades are an easy way to maintain sanitation when potting; use them once and discard. They provide a low cost alternative to repeatedly sterilizing a knife.

It is recommended that you use razor blades with extreme care and limit their use to cutting nothing thicker than a thin leaf (which they often do better than shears). A rhizome is too thick, too tough and too dangerous to attempt cutting with a razor blade, shears are much safer. Also, be sure to keep razor blades out of the reach of children and dispose of them properly.
