Oh boy.., these are fine! Made in Solingen from one piece of stainless. Sharp as hell, you gotta watch yourself. Brand new in the original paper wrapper, these were all made surplus because the rules were changed, and now you only have scalpels with throw-away blades! (None of that Pakistani crap!) These were better, as most physicians agree, since they were absolutely positive. No wiggle in the blade! They are about 6.5” long overall, with the blade about 1.5”.
