    Cool Wood carving or marking knife with replaceable blade

    Last fall I bought a box of disposable scalpel blades and wanted a nice wood handle to use them.

    Good work on that handle. How long do the scalpel blades last?

    Hello,
    Great, I hate plastic handles too !
    Diyer, you know what, you will say I'm quite stingy, but I always re-sharpen my (normally) disposable blades like Xacto blades or even heavy duty cutter blades. I actually rarely purchase new ones.
    Cheers !
    Christophe

    That's not stingy, Christophe! That's being frugal, and to me, that is an entirely different (and desirable) trait. I myself repurpose broke hacksaw blades into utility knives.

    Looks like we are of the same mindset too, Doc!

    I searched google and found this https://mechanicguides.com/best-wood-carving-knives/ , but I want to hear the opinions of professional knife makers.

    I've only dabbled in wood carving and it was a long time ago. Given that, I would suggest that anything that you can find at Lee Valley...

    Lee Valley Tools - Woodworking Tools, Woodworking Supplies, Woodworking Books for Woodworkers

    will serve you well. Personally, I would avoid knives with replaceable blades; they have a tendency to shift when taking deep cuts.

    Some other resources...

    https://woodworker.com/

    https://www.woodcraft.com/

    It's a good idea to adjust your preferences so your location shows in your posts. Suggesting sources in the USA if you live on the other side of the world won't be very helpful.
