In The Escapists 2, it is recommended you use this or a similar non-contraband weapon (Cup, Mug or Jar of Ink are some examples) instead of cheap contraband weapons such as the Comb Shiv or Comb Blade, as they possess the same stats and will not trigger Scanners. In fact, the Razor Blade has identical stats to the Comb Blade, rendering the Comb Blade useless.
