Not sure about the edge protector? What do you have in mind? I have been known to overdo things because I too am particular. But at some point, and that is up to each of our OCD levels, it becomes a futile endeavor. I try to strike a balance, not sure very successful that way, but Bryan does offer new cans for a fair price if you damage a can.
I did manage to bust an edge off of my favorite Kraken in the Caymans when I dropped it, with some acceleration behind it, on the tile floor of our room. It only cracked a small sliver off and I continued to dive the regulator. Then when I got home I ordered a new can top from Bryan. Would a rubber edge protector have helped? Not sure. Other than this one misadventure my Kraken has so far proven quite sturdy. And that drop that cracked the edge off of the Kraken would likely have put a large, ugly dent into a brass can and might have required some reshaping to retain a seal on the main diaphragm to continue diving. It was a hard lick.
