My dad used a sharpener to extend the life of his blue blades.  It looked like an old fashoned crank pencil sharpener and honed the blade when you cranked.  I also remember when blue blades were replaced by stainless steel ones that were silver.  

On another thought, my son-in-law was cut by an old blue blade when he opened up the kitchen wall that accessed all of the old razor blades that had been put through the slot in the back of the bathroom medicine cabinet.

@chrisbroz - Ages ago, I too went back to the old double-edge razor. After a week I actually had to start hiding it from my wife. Her leg hairs can do more damage to a new blade than tin snips. ROFL

My old man used the Blue Blades and that's what I learned to use when I began shaving around age 15 (1965) or so...then shortly after (or maybe not so shortly after) the 'Spoiler' was introduced by Gillette...I started using that because the Blue Blades didn't keep an edge - or so I thought...my old man would get really upset when I'd toss the blade after only a few weeks (according to him I was wasting money)...and he didn't like me using any other shave cream than the old Noxema in the blue jar.  some time later (prolly the Army) I began using single edge disposable blasdes, with no old man to worry about, I changed them when thet began to 'pull'.  A couple of years ago I went back to the older style double edge safety razor..

Alan's post actually called it up from the old memory banks (thanks Alan laughing).
OK Duff, you asked for it (in 8 year old boys voices):

How are you fixed for balls? Do you have plenty?
How are you fixed for balls? You better check.
Please make sure you have enough,
Cause worn out balls makes peeing mighty tough.

How are you fixed for balls? You better look,
Gillette Blue Balls we mean!
