All About Scalpel Handles

From thin and flat to round and robust, long or short, pencil or palmar grip, single-use or re-usable: the scalpel handle you choose is important. Other than the correct size, you want to consider comfort and practicality. A single-use BP handle may be simpler for certain applications, but you may prefer a reusable handle for other procedures. For surgical and podiatry scalpel blades the regular size handles are #3 and #4. Beaver blade handles are also popular for holding micro blades and as they don't have the key-like slot mechanism, they are compatible with any micro blade.

Scalpel Blade and Handle Compatibility

Various scalpel blades and handles are interchangeable. Generally, a #3 and #5 handle can use blades 10 to 15 and the #4 and #6 scalpel handle is compatible with blades 20 to 25. For example, the 11-blade can fit in a #3 handle, but also in 5B, 7, 9, B3 and B3L. If you have a preferred handle, you just need to make sure it will fit the various blades that you use most frequently. Some medical professionals like paramedics prefer the fully disposable scalpel options.
