Reeder Products has once again taken to Kickstarter to raise funds to take its new OPS III Pocket Scalpel Knife into production providing users with a pocket knife perfect for EDC, medical, survivalist, veterinarians, utility or just as a hobby knife.
Check out the promotional video below to learn more about the OPS III design and construction. The OPS III Scalpel Knife is now available to back via Kickstarter with pledges starting from just $50 for early bird backers and builds on the companies previous designs.
Introducing the OPS III pocket scalpel knife. We thought OPS II was the perfect pocket scalpel knife, but there is always room for improvement. So we came out with OPS III, it is ideal for EDC (every day carry), survivalists, hunters, hikers, crafters, scrapbookers and medical personnel.
We have had several requests for a knife that uses a fitment 3 blade (smaller blade). Our supporter feedback has indicated that the #3 fitment is more commonly used by human and veterinarian surgeons . Many of our supporters are surgeons, veterinarians and nurses who work for them and give the OPS II as a gift. It can double as a small utility knife and as a scalpel (you can carry extra sterile scalpel blades with you for use in an emergency or if you simply have a dull blade).
They are quick and easy to change without disassembling the handle (see video and pictures below). These blades are inexpensive and easy to change. We have been asked if the OPS III can be autoclaved. The Stainless Steel version is best if you plan on autoclaving because it will stand up to this procedure indefinitely.
Now that your knife can use a fitment 3 or fitment 4 you have a wider choice of many different blade shapes.
