I just ran across this thread--if you are looking for scalpel handles, the place to go is Lee Valley, a Canadian company that has a great website. I have one of their handles--it's big and heavy and allows very careful movement. The founder, some guy Lee, started by writing a book on how to sharpen chisels. Eventually the company became the best source of quality tools in the world. Good on him.

The opthalmic surgeons in Ottawa go to Lee Valley to buy scalpel handles!

Beautiful coin, by the way!

I have a misunderstanding. What is DW (”put the coin over night in DW TO MAKE THE DIRT SMOOTHER” )?

Hi Satyrus,

DW is Distilled Water. It's water that has been boiled and allowed to condensate in a new container. Distilled water lacks the ions present in drinking water. You can usually buy distilled water very cheaply at grocery stores and other general retailers.
