The scalpel handle on KRUUSE scalpels is made from ABS plastic providing greater rigidity and body to the scalpel and ensuring a superior finish. All materials are latex free.
The blades are manufactured from the finest surgical and razor blade grade steel. A high percentage of carbon gives particularly good grinding and honing properties, facilitating the manufacture of high quality edges. The higher carbon content also enables each blade to be heat treated to achieve the perfect balance between hardness and strength. The material also has good corrosion resistance properties and conforms to ISO 7153 and BS 5194 standards.
