Our surgical scissors with gold handles have tungsten carbide inserts in the blades. Tungsten carbide instruments are more durable, hold an edge longer and last longer than stainless steel instrument.
The hardness of tungsten carbide is five times that of stainless steel. Tungsten carbide inlays in the blades of scissors endure substantially longer than stainless steel scissors. Some of our scissors combine the advantages of razor-sharp Sure Cut blades with the tungsten carbide’s durability.
