Scalpeldashi

from 2.00

Surgical scalpel blades are quite simply the sharpest and least expensive disposable cutlery available, able to easily slice paper or whittle hair. We wanted to put that utility in an EDC package so it is always on-hand when you need it. The concept of a kiradashi is an excellent one, which is why it has stood the test of time. They are compact, inexpensive, and simple EDC tools used for everything from cutting and carving to marking, scoring etc. Why not combine these two concepts to make an exceptional EDC tool?

We start with the proven bayonet of a premium #3 surgical scalpel, which firmly holds blades in a rattle free mounting and accepts blades #6, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, and 40. We offer several different handle options:

  • Walnut and Phenolic - A premium scalpeldashi handled in rich dark walnut and chocolate phenolic. Each is given multiple coats of a penetrating and polymerizing oil-varnish blend to create a beautiful and durable finish and then engraved with our logo.

  • Distressed Graphite - This finish has that unmistakable sheen and off-black appearance of carbon, much like carbon fiber. (no surprise) Somewhat plain if left simply flat on faceted surfaces, we carefully distress the surface to create a textured which better shows off the graphite’s unique sheen.

  • Sapphire Blue - a very vibrant and rich metallic blue, this color really stands out and looks fantastic.

  • Bronze - A rich metallic finish, somewhat similar in appearance to the Cerakote Burnt Bronze.

  • Diamond Black - This is best described as a metallic black. It has a distinct metallic lustre, that leaves you doing a double take as it is not quite black as it appears at first glance.

  • Chameleon Skin - A couple different processes come together to produce this amazing finish. In short, this patterned finish changes color depending on lighting conditions and view-angle, shifting from green to blue to purple to red. While we’ve tried to capture it in pictures, it must be seen in person to truly do it justice.

  • One-Off/Custom/Limited-Run - These come in varying flavors, some of which are experimental, and are listed below. One-offs are truly one of a kind, and when that exact dashi is sold there will never be another exactly like it again.

Kiridashi don’t traditionally come with a sheath, however that limits practicality and convenience. Each scalpeldashi comes with a 20% carbon fiber reinforced nylon sheath*, selected for its durability and attractive appearance next to a wide range of different dashi. Additionally we offer matching sheaths in many of the same materials as the Scalpeldashi themselves, available as an optional accessory. All have a lanyard loop, which holds the dashi firmly enough to prevent it falling out under its own weight, but can be released with just one hand or a quick tug. An optional deep-carry pocket clip of 6Al4V Titanium can be added to any sheath. This makes Scalpeldashi the perfect accessory for EDC in a pocket, on a keychain, on your belt, or as a neck knife.

Scalpel blades have several advantages over other disposable blades, namely they are extremely inexpensive (typically under 20 cents a blade, often under 10 cents a blade), exceptionally sharp (thinner and sharper than Xacto), have very thin blades, have excellent availability in a variety of designs materials and grades, are fast and easy to change without any tools, have available tools to remove them directly into a safe sharps disposal container, and our handles will firmly hold blades in a stable and obviously rattle-free manner (unlike cheap handles) for precision cutting. Believe me, we have Xactos, utility blades, snap blades, etc but we all prefer and EDC these. Note custom engraving and bespoke materials are available.

*Every Dashi comes with a blade and 20% carbon fiber reinforced nylon sheath, however this excludes models which already include a different sheath. Namely this applies to the exotic material matched dashi and sheath one-offs. Simply put, every dashi will include a sheath of some sort.
**Replacement blades are 10A, are non-sterile, and are sold by the 5 pack. We recommend you do not purchase replacement blades from us, as the blades can be had in bulk more cheaply elsewhere.




One-Off/Custom/Limited-Run Scalpeldashi

Bocote - this is a limited run of dashi and sheaths (available separately) in stunning bocote. This exotic and resinous hardwood naturally develops with this striking black and yellow grain.


Figured Bubinga - This beautiful little piece of bubinga has some lighter and creamer tones than most, as well as a beautiful stabilized snarl. There is a good bit of life in this piece too, a special one-of-a-kind.

Macassar Ebony Scalpeldashi and sheath set

Macassar Ebony - dark, rich, dense, stunning. The wonders of Ebony but with a more intriguing pattern. This is a matching scalpel and sheath set.


Sycamore Scalpeldashi

Sycamore Scalpeldashi

Sycamore - This from is wood we harvested as a downed tree almost three decades ago. It has been slowly curing in our workshop ever since, NEVER kiln dried. Its unique patterning is as beautiful as it is unusual.






Amboyna Burl Scalpeldashi

Amboyna Burl Scalpeldashi

Amboyna Burl - This scalpeldashi was cut from end grain amboyna burl, extremely challenging to work with especially in such small pieces, but the effect is sensational. There is just so much figuring in this tiny piece as a result of careful selection and perparation, a real gem.


Night Rocks over GITD Blue - This stunning one-off dashi was done in an exotic house-made composite. Strontium aluminate doped stones are set in black resin, and then machined into the final dashi scale. As an added touch, a strontium aluminate blue liner is placed between the composite top scale and the phenolic bottom scale. The result is an amazing one-off to behold night or day.

Note, strontium aluminate is the most potent of a handful of existent glow technologies. Green glows the brightest and longest, while blue has a surreal other-worldly quality to it. It is charged by exposure to light; high intensity light works best, and only a brief exposure is needed to charge.


Fireflies over GITD Green - This one-off was done in an exotic house-made composite. The patterns you see run like veins throughout the piece, brass set in black resin, which then is machined to the final shape. As fireflies glow at night, we paired it with a strontium aluminate doped green liner. Just enough of the tail was machined away to make it visible from the top, a nod to its namesake’s glowing thorax.

Note, strontium aluminate is the most potent of a handful of existent glow technologies. Green glows the brightest and longest, while blue has a surreal other-worldly quality to it. It is charged by exposure to light; high intensity light works best, and only a brief exposure is needed to charge.

Art Deco 2.0 Cu - A copper composte pattern set in black resin makes for a very unique and striking dashi. This is another of our house made composites.
