Surgeon’s Blades

Surgical scalpels/ blades, are also known as bistoury. I never found any cutting tool with cleaner cut, and with minimal needed pressure applied when cutting. It is ultra efficient and unique when handled expertly. Their scope of usage might be endless, like absolutely and other cutting device, myself I prioritize these for:

Defining fine contours, especially when covering wide-angle lenses with any form of clear nylon bags.

Making openings with no shake at all, mostly when I decide to extend a time-lapse that was originally planned to be shorter. So I most probably need to access the card compartment, or change the battery of an already “bagged” camera.

Even if a simple bag is doing fine, you sometimes decide to extend the shoot, shake is forbidden!!! click on the image to see another article about a shoot in the snow

They are the greatest in my opinion, for cutting gel filter that slip into the back of a lens, lenses like the 14mm 2.8 prime, 10.5 fisheye, 8mm Sigma, and many more.

Cutting with scalpels is way better than cutting with scissors that may cause wrinkles

Remember, these blades require a lot of “delicatesse” and caution, and are not practical in later storage.
