RE;place / replacement blade of cutter

RE;place

When people think about new design, they may start thinking with something totally new or huge. I think, however, design can be started from tiny and small things in our daily life.
So, I got the concept of RE;place in this way trying to solve inconvenience and waste. Many in the world use cutters when they work and they may have experienced that their blade was broken. In this case, the broken part of the blade will be thrown away ( It doesn’t matter if it’s long or short ). RE;place solved this problem with a few holes on a blade. Now, the idea from small things is not a small thing anymore.
