  Door guard advantage - cushionining
  Posted by: Kocho on Nov-02-12 4:18 PM (EST)
 

Epoxy-finsihed edges will crack and chip with hard blows on rocks, even if there is a hard wood, Dynel, or other sort of reinforcement. They will also simply wear off over time. The door edge provides a bit of cushioning to minimize and eliminate chips. It can be easily replaced preiorically.

Thanks for the tip about the rubber band to make it conform to the paddle shape. A bit of heat gun application might also work.

This type of door edge protector might not work well on very thick edged blades, but is perfect for thin-edged blades.
