Big oops

Well here I am. I was replacing the hpop on my 96. Everything was going smooth. I torqued the drive gear back on to the hpop and was cleaning gasket material off around the inspection port with a razor blade. I had a rag in the hole so I couldnít drop anything into it. Well I somehow managed to drop the razor blade and it got passed the rag. Iím fairly positive I herd it drop all the way to the pan. Iíve been fishing around through the dipstick hole with a boroscope and a magnet trying to find it with no luck. Anyone have any ideas on what I could do short of pulling the engine and removing the pan to find it ? What would it cost to have a shop pull the engine and do the job ? I could scream

Drain the oil and take a look through there. Maybe try a magnet and drag it to a safe spot and leave the magnet on? Tough situation
