    Design:

    This is another customer requested product. Designed in collaboration with Shapeways and fellow Multitool.org user: Metro Grade Goods. Please visit his shop if you would like a Scalpel holder or other tools such as the Leatherman Charge. Details on the Multitool.org design thread.

    Compatible Scalpel Blades:

    ARC, FREE P4, Garage 005, FREE P2

    Scalpel blades are ultra sharp and  inexpensive in quantity. You can simply replace the blade when dull. Please dispose of used blades responsibly.  Take great care when installing or removing scalpel blades. Use pliers or another tool to grip the blades. Do not use your bare fingers.

    I recommend using Havalon 70A replacement blades. These are the longest blades that will fit into the FREE series. The 70A blade is the safest to use as it won't have the sharp tip that can tilt out when the tool is in your pocket.

    Other blades that fit the #4 handle profile can also work, but are not long enough to lock in place while using the pliers. For an example of what I am talking about: Try tilting the scissors on your tool while the pliers are deployed, and then the main blade. The main blade is blocked by a hard stop built into the pliers.

    FREE T2:

    #26 blades fit the FREE T2 perfectly.

    FREE T4:

    Either #22, and #26 blades have been tested to fit. Will fit any short scalpel blade that fits a #4 handle profile.

    Warnings:

    Compare to a standard knife: Scalpel blades are ultra-sharp. They dull quickly and are designed to be disposable. 


    Post Processing:

    The part may arrive with some polishing compound in the slot. To clear the slot of debris: Use a thin metal implement to scrape away any debris. I use the back edge of a scalpel to do this. Hold the the blade with pliers not bare fingers!.

    You can also gently use a rotary tool with a very thin cutting  wheel. (Dremel 0.025" thick wheel recommended).  Take care not to remove too much Color as that will effect the fit of the blade.

    The mounting hole may require reaming using a drill bit capable of handling stainless steel.  A 1/8" or 3.2mm drill bit may be used for this task.

    Installation:

    The tool must be taken apart to install this modification. Any warranty concerns are entirely up to the user.

    For a live demonstration see the video at the top of this page. The tool must be taken apart to install this modification. 

    1. You will need two Torx T9 bits to remove the screws holding the tool together.
    2. The screws need to be loosened by holding one side with a bit, and turning the other side.
    3. The screws are secured using thread-locking compound, and gentle heat may be required to loosen the compound on some tools.
    4. Care should be taken to open the tool on a clean surface.
    5. Remove the blade you plan on replacing.
    6. Also remove the spacer washer that sits between the blade and the outer scale.
    7. Install the Scalpel holder. (Without a blade pre-attached)
    8. Silicone based lubricant may be added during assembly.
    9. Re-install the post and screws. The tightness of the tool will depend on the amount of torque you apply during reassembly.
    10. Before installing a blade: Ensure the scalpel holder fully locks in the open position, if for some reason it doesn't fully lock, you may need to file away a small amount from the knee that catches on the latch mechanism.
    11. Take great care when installing or removing scalpel blades. Use pliers or another tool to grip the blades. Do not use your bare fingers.

      Product did not meet expectations. I have to work on it so it will actually fit scalpel knives as advertised.

      Great addition to my leatherman

      Create a video to keep a razor share blade on my leatherman. I'm a hunter and it's great to be able to change out the blades after they get dull or to dirty.

      Amazing addition to the Arc!

      The scalpel holder for the Arc is absolutely an amazing addition to an almost perfect tool! The quality of the print is fantastic and installation was as advertised.it replaced the saw on my tool and operates perfectly from that position. I can definitely recommend this to anyone looking to mod their tool with a full size scalpel (I am using 60A blades with no issue), you won’t be disappointed!
