Many of us use various X-Acto knives from time to time. I keep mine handy and well protected with a wine cork. Any type of cork will work, but I find the newer extruded plastic foam types last longer and do not tend to stain the blade. Carefully and fully press the blade straight into the center of the cork. Mark the slit with a fine-line permanent marker and place a cross mark where the back of the blade goes. The protector will last for a surprisingly long time and is certainly easy to replace.
