A little while ago I poked myself with my scalpel while digging through the toolbox, and thought it was probably time to make a case. Should have done that a long time ago. I was procrastinating so instead of two pieces of card taped together over the blade, I built up the card with little strips at the edge to accommodate the thickness of the blade. And then I thought, eh, maybe I should cover it, it's going to get pretty damaged in the next 10 years before I get around to replacing it. So I dug in my leather scraps box and remembered the shagreen scraps I never did anything with. Thus—shagreen case with leather edging. I have a few scalpels, so then I had to make the other ones match. And then the shagreen case looked way too elaborate on the plastic-handled scalpel, so I had to cover the handle in leather too. I think I'm done now.
