One problem with razor blades is that, if you don't keep the edge the
edge perfectly flat against the glass, you're likely to permanently
scratch the glass.

It doesn't take rust; anything that put an irregularity on the razor's
edge will do it. For example, if you run the razpr blade down to the
gravel line and the edge gets a very tiny nick. You then can easily
put very thin scratches in your glass.

I have used the Kent Marine pro scraper on acrylic without mishap, but
I always feel like I dancing with a tiny devil -- about the way I I
used to feel when using a razor blade on glass. ;-)
