Hi all

I have just received a new knife handle and am so impressed with it that I thought you would like to know about it

it is by Veritas they class it as a carving knife but I find that it is useful as my general knife handle for most operations

It will take most blades x acto or scalpel blades . Because it has an oval handle it will not roll off the bench which is a good safety feature . It is not cheap but I feel that it is worth the money

Can you show us a photo with one of the scalpel blades they call spear?  Looks great but I am concerned about how much of the blade is exposed - doesn't lok like enough would be exposed.

Thanks,

Kurt

Kurt, in the photo from left to right are #12, #15 and #11 blades.  The drop-off angle on the non-cutting side varies by manufacturer.  The #12 is also called a tonsil blade (you can guess why).

Thanks Toni.  Looking at the handle more carefully I will stick with the aluminum scalpel handle I have been using as it allows the entire length of the cutting edge of the blade to be used.

I've had one of these Veritas knives from Lee Valley for years. Mine does not have the removable end cap, but it is the same knife. I find it to be one of my best tools. i use it and its blades for all my really delicate work. The blades (at least the ones i bought) come individually wrapped. The  reason i like them is that they are very, very sharp.
