The Safety Knife Company has designed a scalpel knife designed for intricate knife applications.
The ReAkta Scalpel is a spring-loaded retractable knife that can be fitted with a wide variety of scalpel blades. The knurled finish on the tubular stainless steel handle gives good grip and allows great dexterity for the user. The multi-position sliding button allows the user to lock the blade in the knife when not in use. There is a left or right locking position when in use and spring retraction once unlocked.
The blade is held in place by an interlocking collet, making blade removal much safer when compared to scalpel handles where the blade is “clicked” in to one side, says the manufacturer.
This version with a 10-millimetre diameter body is suitable for Swann-Morton Blades No. 11, 13 and 40 plus many others.
