Does what it is supposed to

Although this works as advertised and is good at cutting soft corals a few points for you to be aware. One, the base and blades both come in a plastic tube with caps. Once you install the blade into the base, the scalpel will no longer fit into the plastic case that it came in. This is obviously a very sharp instrument, so just leaving it about isn't wise. You'll need to keep the plastic case it came with to hold the unused blades and find another case to hold the scalpel with a blade installed. Somewhat of a pain. Two, haven't figured out how to get the blade out of the base easily. Might just be me.

I found this scalpel to be very light weight, and easy to hold in my hand. The blades are individually wrapped to keep them steril so you dont have to touch them to install them. This tool works great for cutting my mushrooms, and other soft corals.

The soft coral scalpel is awsome. I am also enjoying my SPS Coral Clippers. Marine Depot is top notch, without a doubt.
