Blades & Scalpel

Surgical blades, or scalpels, are used for cutting skin and tissue during surgical procedures. There are different types of blades specific to the type of procedure. Surgical blades vary by size and shape. The number of the blade indicates the blade size and shape. Surgical blades are typically made with stainless steel or carbon steel.

Fitment No. 3

Fitment No. 4

Size 10

A large curved cutting edge, which represents a more traditional blade shape. It is used for cutting soft tissue, typically with large incisions.

Size 11

A long, triangular blade with the hypotenuse as its sharpest edge. Because of its pointed tip, it is typically used for stabbing incisions and/or short, precise cuts that are shallow.

Size 11P

An extended cutting edge combined with a long, fine point makes the 11P ideal for stab incisions in soft tissue for the insertion of chest drains and Cardiac catheters.

Size 12

A small, pointed, crescent-shaped blade used typically as a suture cutter. It is most sharp on the inside edge of its curve.

Size 15

Ideal for making short, precise incisions because of its small, curved cutting edge.

Fitment No. 4

Size 20

A large curved blade commonly used for cutting tissue and other procedures that require a puncture or cut.

Size 21

Similar to the size 20, it features a large curved blade commonly used for cutting tissue and other procedures that require a puncture or cut.

Size 22

Essentially a larger version of the #10, it has a flat, unsharpened back edge and a short, curved cutting edge. These blades are best for creating large incisions, often through thick skin.

Size 23

A large blade that is slightly narrower than the size 21. It also has a pointier tip.

Size 24

Slightly larger than the size 23 blade, the size 24 is more semi circular in shape and is again sharpened along its leading edge.
