Knife and scalpel parts and accessories are used to repair or handle knives and scalpels. They include scalpel blades, knife blades and blade removers. Scalpel blades are commonly made of stainless steel because of its strength and durability. Blade removers are handheld tools that detach blades from scalpel handles. Because the majority of scalpel blades are used only once, scalpel blade removers safely and repeatedly replace contaminated blades.
