"Diamond" blades are specially designed for cutting small bones, plastic, hard tissues for use in cryostats. The coating is incredibly durable and able to withstand plenty of abuse. These blades are not recommended for general paraffin sections.

See link on top of this page to tungsten carbide "disposable blades". These and TC knives are best for very hard, resin-embedded specimens; these knives can cut undecalcified solid bone.

Samples are available on request.


SELECTING THE CORRECT BLADE

C L Sturkey Inc
Excellence in microtome knives for 60 years

Sturkey blades are as good as or even better than the over-priced brands.
When aiming for excellent sections and great blade durability, it is important to match blades to the job.

At high performance levels, blades are good for fairly specific tasks:

  • 'Select' for 2µm sections of soft tissue, but with little durability
  • 'Silver' for 2-4 µm sections and improved durability
  • 'Extremus' for 4µm and thicker sections, excellent durability
  • 'Diamond' is for hard materials, even small bones
  • 'Gold' is particularly useful for cryo sections
