I loved the proportions of Qjr's no. 4 scalpel handle, but the part was a little loose. I remixed it to be stronger near the blade, lighter in the handle, fit the blade tighter, and have rounded sides. This file prints perfect for me and the blades audibly snap in. Surprisingly durable and flexible in PETG.

I printed these at 100% infill, 0.1mm layer, 0.4mm nozzle. The trusswork is 0.5mm wall.
Cura will slice this correctly.

Please note, these are not sterile and can break. Be careful not to cut yourself when installing/using/replacing and I wouldn't recommend printing with PLA or any weak materials.

Can you design a separate plastic blade (scalpel) that snaps in for demonstration purposes? So i don't need to use a real one and cut myself most likely... ha

With nozzle 0.4 cura isn't rendering inner structure, only when set to 0.3 and less

how much should I scale it in order to have size 3?

It seems the scale was non-uniform, and even after scale, it needed a little tweaking to work for me.
I just made another remix so the handle size is consistent.
