PenBlade was founded in 2013 by a critical care physician. The blades were originally designed for use in medical centers and hospitals for surgeries. After a successful medical launch, nurses began reporting taking the scalpels home and using them on their crafting projects. From there, many new uses of PenBlades were discovered. Now, we sell PenBlades not only to hospitals and medical centers, but to cake decorators, crafters, hobbyists, artists, and more!
