I use X-acto knives to sharpen my charcoal pencils. To sharpen a pencil without breaking it, the blade has to be very sharp. So I have all these semi-sharp leftover blades which are essentially dead, hence the title.

Would it look better if you focused on the closest one instead of the middle one?

Nice concept. Even looks like you have mountains in the background.
