Dissection knives are shaped according to their purpose. A good example of this is the Dissecting Knife Tenotome which is part of the Surtex Instruments catalogue of premium surgical blades. The dissecting Tenotome knife is used during tenotomies. Its forward-curved blade enables a safe insertion of the instrument inside the space under the tendon ensuring that no damage is done to the surrounding blood vessels and nerves during the process. Highest quality dissection knives listed in the Surtex Instruments range include the Dieffenbach Dissecting Knife, Bergmann Dissecting Knife, Dissecting Knife Bellied Blade and others.
