Scalpels can be VERY useful in a variety of circumstances. The blades are thin, sharp, easily replaceable, and available in a variety of sizes and profiles.
To make my scalpels, I turn my standard marking knife shape on the lathe and then embed a Swann Morton surgical scalpel fitment into the handle.

- Handle is 6” long, 1” in diameter at widest point. Ground flat on 2 sides to prevent rolling.
