    The Slice® 10568 Ceramic Scalpel (Replaceable Blade) combines the best features of the 10574 scalpel and the 10548 craft knife: it has a slim, flat handle that’s capable of reaching into tight spaces, and a replaceable finger-friendly® blade. The 10568 uses the same blades as the Slice Craft Knife: non-magnetic, non-sparking, non-conductive, chemically inert, and rust free. The blades are autoclave-friendly and safe up to 1600 degrees Celsius, while the handle is lightly weighted for balance and stability.

    More About the Slice Ceramic Scalpel (Replaceable Blade)

    What Is a Scalpel Used For?

    Usually we associate scalpels with surgical procedures but in Slice’s version, the ceramic scalpel blades have a safety grind—our proprietary finger-friendly edge—that resists cutting skin. So while ultra-sharp metal and other ceramic blades cut through skin and tissue with very little pressure, Slice blades are intended for non-surgical applications. These include electronics work, manufacturing, laboratory work, and crafting applications.

    For non-surgical uses, an excessively sharp blade is really just a safety hazard. Slice scalpels offer a safer alternative that protects against accidental lacerations and offers the same benefits as other advanced ceramics: a non-magnetic, non-conductive, non-sparking, chemically inert blades that never rust.

    What Kind of Scalpel Blades Are Available?

    We offer a variety of shapes for our craft knife blades, which are all compatible with the 10568 scalpel. These include the 10518 blade with a straight edge and rounded tip and the 10520 blade with a curved edge and rounded tip. Because scalpel blade uses include a number of different materials and maneuvers, we’re currently working on several new blade styles to extend the versatility of our craft knives and 10568 scalpel. We expect to have these in stock by early 2018.

    How Do I Change The Blade in the Slice Ceramic Scalpel?

    Usually a search for how to replace scalpel blades results in a number of different procedures with various tools: forceps, safety gloves, tweezers, etc. The 10568 scalpel handle has a built-in no-tool mechanism to release the old blade and insert the new one. And because the blade is finger friendly, the risk of a cut while replacing blades is extremely low.

    How Does the Slice 10568 Scalpel Differ From the 10548 Craft Knife?

    Let’s talk about similarities first. Both tools are intended for intricate cutting, scraping, and other detailed work. Both have a slim, weight-balanced handle for fine motor control and both use the same family of Slice blades (the 10518 and 10520, although more styles will be available in 2018). And both tools have a cutting depth of approximately two centimeters.

    The main difference between the tools is that our scalpel handle size and shape provide more maneuverability in very tight spaces. The handle is slimmer than the 10548 handle and flat rather than rounded, allowing it to reach into even smaller areas. The 10568 handle is made entirely from durable glass-filled nylon with a notched collar to provide a better grip, while the 10548 Craft Knife features a copper textured control grip.
