A scalpel is an extremely sharp, small bladed instrument meant to cut through skin, tendons, and muscles. It is used primarily by medical-nin, doctors, or practically any individual with medical expertise to perform surgery. However, due to its sharpness, it could also be used as a potent weapon against a foe. Kabuto Yakushi has been known to do so in an attempt to kill Sasuke.
