Book of Vile Darkness 3.5

By Monte Cook

A finely crafted knife with a short, sharp blade, the scalpel is used by surgeons to cut away diseased flesh. When used by a torturer, the scalpel pares lengths of skin away, then removes a digit or an earlobe.

Each use of a scalpel deals 1d6 points of damage and allows one Intimidate check. Flensers are similar knives used to remove the skin from a body.
