This is an early German made Scalpel. The overall condition is very good, the only blemish to this scalpel is that there is a small amount of a glue like substance on a couple small areas of the blade. I believe that it can be removed is someone wants to clean it off. The handle, I believe is Bakelite. The overall length is 6". The only marking on this piece is "Germany" at the near end of the blade. Please email me with questions.
