Swann & Morton Scalpel Handles

Swann & Morton scalpel handles are sold separately from the corresponding carbon steel blades, and we stock a wide range of each. The handles come in standard nickel alloy. Two acrylic handles are available as well; we understand that they offer improved control. Additionally, handles 3 and 4 now feature metric gradations. Our complete line of handles includes numbers 3, 3L, 4, 4L, 7, and 9 in the nickel alloy and numbers 5A and 6A in the acrylic material. In addition, a retractable #3 handle is also available. It is specifically designed to accommodate blades #10, #10A, #11, and #15, and to protectively house them when not in use. Please note your choice of handle by replacing the (X) in the item number when ordering. (For instance Nickel handle #3 is SMH-3.)
