Sapphire Knives


Sapphire knives are used in the vibrating microtome, and possible to produce thinner sections, over the traditional razor blades. Made from synthetic single-crystal sapphire cutting edge and gives distortion free sections under 10 microns thick. Sapphire is not as hard as diamond or tungsten carbide, but many times harder than steel, thus it produces sharper edges and has increased durability. The knife can be re-sharpened.


Dimensions: 40 mm x 12 mm x 0.9 mm.

Triangular Tungsten Carbide Knives.


These triangular shaped knives are made of tungsten carbide steel. Excellent for sectioning GMA and JB-4 embedded samples, hard specimens and other difficult materials. These knives will fit all ultramicrotomes with a glass knife stage. They will section larger specimens than are possible with glass knives. The  durability of tungsten -carbide is such that changing of knives in middle of operation is rarely necessary. With a cost much lower than diamond knives, triangular tungsten knives are very economical  and will last longer than all other knives. When they become dull they can be used as a trimming tool. The edge length is 10 mm and the height is 25 mm
