Scalpels are one of the basic types of weapon in ADOM. They belong to the Daggers and Knives weapon class.

The base iron variety has default stats of (+2, 1d3+1), though these do vary from time to time. Mithril and truesilver scalpels also exist, but there are no adamantium or eternium versions.


DesirabilityEdit

Scalpels are better than knives and daggers, but still not very good weapons overall. Orcish knives even fare slightly better than the iron version. Scalpels have a relatively high selling price for their power, but are quite rare to find.

Guaranteed/Common SourcesEdit

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. All Healers start out with one. Also, the mad doctor will give a scalpel and stethoscope to PCs that complete the Kill Jharod quest but already have Healing.
