I use a dental knife used for trimming dentures. It is by Buffalo Dental. It has a wooden handle (similar to an old paring knife), but a small blade and fits great in my hands (which are kinda big).
You can also try a company that sells dissecting instuments. Really what you are looking for is a scalpel or cartilage knife. I have recommended DR Instruments to my students.

I wonder if someone could help me with this!
I am looking for a stainless steel knife that we use to scrape off the
paraffin from the embedded blocks. I could not find the 6 inches size
knife in any catalog.
Thanks in advance
