Scalpels, precision cutting blades or craft knife blades?

Swann Morton scalpel handle  #4 and scalpel blades that fit it SM10, 10A, 11, SME11, 12, 15Historically, knife blades have had many names. Often the terms scalpel and knife blade are mixed quite liberally. Sollex sees the scalpel as a type of knife blade for hand-held tools. Scalpels as we see them are relatively short and thin blades for penknives. These are used purely for precision cutting. We prefer the term scalpel for all our knife blades that fit penknives as it describes our product most accurately. Our scalpels are of high quality and are made from quality materials that have been specially ground. Our posters have a luxurious matte finish with no shine, the quality is both felt and seen!

There are many types and shapes of surgical blade that are designed for different purposes. For example, Swann Morton’s scalpel blades of numbers 10 and 11 have a sharpened end and are great for very detailed work. At the same time, surgical knives are extremely sharp and you have to be very careful when working with them and adhere to safety rules.

TIP: Make sure the size of the scalpel blade and handle are the same - this is especially important.

They are used in a set with a special non-surgical MOZART precision-cutting knife. The Mozart precision cutting knife is more robust compared to the more  commonly used medical scalpels. Use the Mozart precision cutting knife for more industrial cutting. The scalpel is very flexible and easy to use for detailed work.

When is it time to change a scalpel blade?

The length of time you can use one blade depends on the material you are cutting as well as the cutting techniques and pressure on a scalpel. But if you hear a specific sound while cutting, for example, a carton, it is time to replace the blade. It is advisable not to spare the blade, because a blunt blade can begin to tear the cutting material and the ends of the cut will be torn and sloppy.

Guidelines for removing a used scalpel blade from scalpel knife holder

  • Using pliers, grasp the end of the blade closest to the handle by the blunt edge (where there is no sharp edge). Face away the cutting edge from the body and hand
  • Lift the blade by the edge with the pliers, bending it slightly and being careful not to break the blade. Move it slowly forward from the handle, being sure to guide the movement away from yourself and others and then slide the handle away to the opposite side. Make sure to hold the blade downwards towards the instrument tray.
  • Always dispose of the blade safely, such as in a safety blade box. Do not leave the blade lying around the work area or anywhere else; it is your responsibility to dispose of the blade safely.
