The PenBlade’s rigid body is constructed of medical-grade ABS, and the blade is high-quality British stainless steel for improved sharpness and durability. The PenBlade is also ergonomicallydesigned and tapered for blade visibility.
The pen-style activation is intuitive because it uses existing muscle memory (clicking an ink pen). The release button is positioned near the front of the scalpel, where it can be pressed without looking or repositioning the hand. When the blade is retracted, the end of the PenBlade forms a suture-trimming groove, which encourages the user to finish a procedure in a safe position.
